After keeping my mileage in the low-80s for 4 of the last 5 weeks, I decided to squeeze in another 5-mile run last night. That run will (hopefully) allow me to reach 90 miles this week.

With this morning's 5-mile run, I entered the 21st century. Apparently my wife found a great deal on an iPod Shuffle. She gave it to me for Christmas and today was the first time I used it. I wouldn't say it was good or bad, it was just different. I can't see myself downloading new songs that pump me up for workouts, but I can see using it to keep me company on dark, cold mornings. While the 512MB don't compare to the 80GB that "everyone" else has - it was enough for me. Besides, remember I only listen to one CD anyway - at least lately.

Alright, that's all I have. I don't even have a 'quote of the day' handy, so how about 'lyrics of the day' from a song I listened to with my iPod;

Climbing up the ladder
Breaking my shin the the very first rung
Waking up the neighbors
It's alright
They understand
They're just as dumb
- Uncle Tupelo

I'm so impressed with your mileage and, for that matter, your speed. Have a good New Year's Eve and a wonderful 2007.

check out the free podcasts on itun7s, some of them are decent if you like that sort of thing. NPR, the economist, new york times, steve runner's phedippidations, etc.
