Mechanical Leprosy: a.k.a. Oh My Goddess, You Killed my Jamis! You Bastards!

Yesterday, the weather was completely reasonable… so I rode my bike to work.  The ride in was nice, if a little damp in places from the still melting snow.  I am sloooow, but since I haven’t really been doing any cardio, I’ve got nobody to blame but myself.  The ride home was also slow...

Video Games: Mirror's Edge

OK, I'm not a full blown reviewer, but I had to say something about Mirror's Edge. It's really a shame that this game hasn't sold better. This was a great new set of ideas (from E.A. of all companies!) and the game works really well. The running and feeling of a flow is just about perfect... when it...

Not a record, but not bad either. Wednesday...

Goals: The Agony of Victory

This morning I hit my 1,000 mile goal that I set for myself on 8/19. By my math, that averages to just over 13.5 miles every calendar day... which isn't too shabby, given that there were plenty of days I couldn't or didn't ride. It was a cold ride in this morning and I overdressed... so I managed to...
