Running... Again?

  If you know me you know there was a time about 10 years ago or so where I was running. A lot. At least 5 days a week and at least 5 miles a run. I wasn’t training, I wasn’t preparing for a race or a marathon. I just found myself enjoying the time spent running. I wasn’t obsessed with numbers, but I kept track of them all and liked seeing improvements in time and distances. It was good physical health and mental health. Then I tweaked my knee. Not bad enough that I couldn’t walk on it, just a tweak that told me I needed to back off of running for a little bit. So I decided on 2 weeks. At the end of 2 weeks I aborted a run very early as the pain was still there. 2 weeks became 3, became a month, became 5 years. 

Big Week Ahead

So, in case you're not a Sharks fan, the Sharks have made the playoffs. Again. We're also Pacific Division and Conference champs. Also, again. Usually this would elicit a celebratory cheer, and boasting about how Team Teal is going all the way, but based on past playoff accomplishments I find myself a little reserved. This  year, instead of picturing how the Stanley Cup would look at the HP Pavilion, I'm just going to look at each game. So game 1 is Wednesday against the surprising Colorado Avalanche. I hope the HTML line of DannyHeatly, Joe Thornton, and Patrick Marleau come out ready to play, and Nabokov shakes off that disappointing Olympics. So, until the outcome of Wednesday the beard that's been growing since Saturday stays. It's status will depend on the Sharks performance; a good game with a loss will require some analysis, a win keeps the beard, and a loss means out comes the razor. Game 1 is Wednesday, and though I sound cynical, I'm excited; I want to believe!
Drupalcon is set to start this week, though the meat of the conference starts next week. Looking forward to meeting other Drupalers, learning some new stuff, seeing what Drupal 7 has to offer, and just hanging out with other Drupal Geeks. Hanging out with a Yelp Elitist as we tour some SF eateries this weekend. Some might be an understatement, but I'm glad it's a walking tour. Good times ahead!
