Made it

I'm in Phoenix. Just really posting to say that I posted from another city. San Jose, Costa Rica; Montreal; now Phoenix. A month from today I'll be in Mexico City, so that's another city. Now, this doesn't happen often. I haven't traveled like this in a long time.

Anyway, how do you like the view?

Not bad. The stands will be packed soon enough.

Anyway, also wanted to blog a little about the Lopers. I signed up and am officially a Loper now! Yay! I ran one mile this morning, ran it in 8:09, so that got me to the 11-minute-per-mile pace group. It's fun to have run that mile and to have signed up for the group. There is a detailed plan in terms of training for the marathon, the Surf City 2010 on Feb. 7, 2010. Every Sunday there are runs and they increase, so next week is two miles, then three, then four, and so on and so on. By September we'll be running double-digit miles and then it's no turning back.

I'll post some more stuff on the Lopers in the coming days, but I am quite excited about talking the plunge and getting stuff done.

Well, gotta get back to work.
