Oh yeah, the 8k went well. My shoe came untied - rookie mistake. I raced in new flats without trying them first (they are little small) - rookie mistake. But the race went well and I ended up running 27:27, mostly to impress Sonja's parents who were there for the race. I pushed hard but didn't dig deep. I am pleased with the race and the result. Tonight's VFAC workout was 2 x 3 miles along the seawall in the dark and rain. I went 16:26 on the first (with the wind) and 17:05 on the second. I was on my own the whole time and was not very motivated as there was a new Macbook in my trunk I wanted to get home to play with it. Things are coming along nicely and I am looking forward to getting back into the trails this weekend. I am also going to race a cross country race on Sunday - good times!

Coming to you from somewhere new....
Yes, at this time, I am writing to you from my new Macbook. I went to the Vancouver Apple Store tonight to get it, but the one I was going to buy was sold out by the time I arrived. Ten minutes before I arrived to be exact. I wanted to get the 2.4 ghz Macbook, but had been waffling over it as the only true advantage was the backlit keyboard, which I don't think that I would ever really need. There is a larger hard drive and slightly faster processor, but I can upgrade the hard drive later and the processor won't make a difference for what I use the computer for. So, after sucking it up, I got the more inexpensive version and I am happy for that. It was the smarter, but not as sexy, choice. So, I am writing to you from the new Macbook and I am happy.
