Almost Paradise

I'm not quite sure what's going on, but Blogger wasn't "digging" my template (the one with the artsy/sketchy looking gray and orange design) on Internet Explorer, and it partially showed up on Mozilla Firefox, so until I figure things out and get a new template, I'm just using a Blogger template -- For now it's under construction, again, so I have to play around with all of the side bar stuff that is currently missing... *SIGH*


Back to business...

Activity: Run
Date: 09/15/07 10:24 AM
Distance: 8.05 miles
Time: 1:29:21
Speed: 5.4 mph
Pace: 11' 06 min/mile
Calories: 764

I had a planned slower pace today, but I wasn't going for speed, just to enjoy the ride and get in the mileage. It's an incredibly beautiful day here in paradise.

I got out to run a little later than planned, but it wasn't as busy at the bay as I had anticipated. This weekend starts the annual thuderboat races at Mission Bay, so people were either staying away or parking elsewhere. As I was running, I could hear the roar of the boats in the not-so-far distance and the whir of the Coast Guard helicopter overhead. I really couldn't see anything, since the races were on the other side of of the bay from where I was running.

Have a great weekend!

Peace

I like that movie and the song too.

I have to add that your blog layout looks fine now.

I was going to guess Jackson Browne. Sorry you didn't get away and I hope the band at least sounds good.

Smartypantz,
Winner! Nah, it's not bad to admit! I always watch it when it's on TV! :)

Barbie2be,
That's so cool! I hope the training group helps you. I need to do the same, but how fortunate is it that you are being guided by a running celeb!

Juls,
That song brings back memories... I spent a good part of the day to get my side bar stuff back on. Trust me, it wasn't all there when I changed templates! I have a little more tweaking to do.

Pat,
We'll see how the "band" goes. They were just having a "jam session." Time will tell.
