My first run in Colorado in over three months went surprisingly well, with much less gasping for air than I anticipated. I ran through my little hometown which has been undergoing major renovations, resulting in a more accessible downtown and a lot of great new stores, restaurants and bars moving in. Good to see, especially for a place that used to be known as Colorado’s witch and satanic worship center. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but in high school it was hard to get a date when they feared being the guest star at a virgin sacrifice.
For those of you with an iPhone, the NYT has a good article about iPhone apps that provide customizable training programs and keep track of your workouts. I’m still waiting for the “That person has the following STD(s)” app.
Ecotality, a Scottsdale, Arizona firm that develops electric car charging networks, has received a ton of money from Federal and State governments to develop their networks, starting in British Columbia. Good news for the electric car movement, bad news for Mr. Flinstone.

I found a new blog that covers the Northwest food scene, mostly focusing on Seattle. Check out Eat All About It (I know, corny name, but good articles).

Back to some research for a new article I am trying to get up this week. I’m trying to finish up before I have to round up some chickens for the Pentagram festival going on tonight at Bob’s house.
