In lieu of any athletic accomplishment, I'm going to enjoy reaching the 5,000 visit mark for this blog today. For whatever reason I've been looking forward to that one. I can't figure out who it was, but thank you whoever you are in Pleasanton, California. Honorable mention to Flatman for being 4,999 and to Louis for being 5,001. To celebrate the momentous occasion I've replaced the video in the sidebar with an even more enjoyable one, even if it comes at my expense. Enjoy.

My long awaited bib frame came in the mail today. Here's what it looked like:

Remember it cost $164. Compare that with the less than $20 this homemade one cost.

Side by side:

You know what I see? A learning experience.

Ha! Love the new video! Pippin was sitting next to me and he would turn his head one way and then the other, he was very into it!

Personally, I'd stick with the small one and then spend the extra money on some cool running gear. I got ripped off after my first half on the "video of me finishing" deal. It was about a 4 min video of which if you didn't know which person I was you'd never even pick me out at the finish line. Terrible!!! And it took FOUR months and me calling the Better Business Bureau to even get the dumb thing!
