Pixel C

Yesterday Google made a slew of announcements, one of my favorites being the family plan for Google Play Music, but there was a surprise in their reveal of the Pixel C. This is an Android tablet, with an optional physical keyboard, that is meant to compete with the likes of the Microsoft Surface and the […]

Super Blood Moon

I was supposed to post my gallery from my race on Saturday, but instead I’m going to postpone that one more day to post my shot of the Super Blood Moon from last night. Took quite a bit of shots to get something decent, but overall I’m happy with the result.

PEZ

Today we participated in the Goosebumps 24 hour race. I want to do up a proper race report, but tonight I need to get going to an Oktoberfest so I’m going to leave you with a fun picture. The hotel that we were staying at was hosting a PEZ convention. That’s right, a convention for […]

The VW Scandal

This week, one of the big stories has been the fraud committed by Volkswagen in regards to their TDI engines. I own a VW Tiguan, and as someone who’s defended their diesel engines in the past, I’m incredibly disappointed with the news that as surfaced. My Tiguan has a gas engine, but I really always […]

Patience and significance

I woke up the other morning and looked at the calendar. I realized that September was quickly fading away, and soon it would be Fall. I’ve already put in two months at my new job, despite feeling like I only got there yesterday. My race calendar is filled up with activities almost every weekend through […]

Create-a-thon checkin

I’m quickly approaching 75% completion of my goal of blogging every single day of 2015. It’s been an interesting experience so far, and for the most part I’ve managed to hold to the discipline.

Quick thoughts on iOS 9

Last week the iOS 9 install landed on my devices and I’ve had some time to play with it. Overall, this is a very minor update, and I didn’t even notice much of a visual change when I started using the phone again after the update. There are changes, for sure, but it certainly feels […]

Sunset

Even though people probably saw it on my Instagram feed this weekend, I wanted to share a photo that I took on Saturday night. We were attending the Minnesota United FC game, and the sun over the western stands was this amazing red, pink hue. #nofilter

Some race analysis

I finally went back and did a bit more analysis of my Moose Mountain Marathon attempt. One of the cardinal rules of long train races is to only think about getting to the next aid station. Don’t focus on the big picture of distance, but just that 5-10 miles before seeing warm food again. I […]
