Workout Challenge 'cause I am tired of being fat!! Inline Skate, Run, Swim, Ride Your Bike (Bicycle), Walk, Get Moving

Kind of been out of the loop for a while, but am determined to get back into it.  I have been procrastinating getting started me training for a triathlon that my wonderful wife signed me up for in June.  I have known about this since my birthday in November, but have come up with every excuse in the book to not train.  Something to watch on tv, too cold, too hot, blah blah blah...we have all heard it.  Well  the end comes today for me.  No more excuses!  This is where the challenge comes in.  Post here what you did for the day as far as exercise.

Buying a New vs Used Car 2010: 0% Financing? Honda Civic LX; Hyundai Elantra GLS; Mazda Mazda3 i Touring; Toyota Corolla LE

After twelve years driving my 1998 Saturn SL with manual transmission, the poor thing finally died at about 240,000 miles. I have spent the past three months immersed in the car-buying process, having never gone through it entirely on my own before. About halfway through it I felt like a horizontal asymptote: forever approaching the point of zero but destined never to actually get there.

Skating Around the Bayesian Logistic Regression Markov Chain March Madness 2010 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament Predictions

I'm no mathmetician, certainly, but music and basketball are two of my favorite applications of mathematics in understanding or perhaps delightfully confusing the world. I enjoyed studying physics in part because it gave meaning to math for me, even if I didn't understand it all still!

Ten-Year-Old Dorset Girl is a Skate Triathlon Hero for Big Hearted Desire to Help Haiti Through Inline Skating

You know, even when we do things for charity, it's easy to get competitive. It's easy to think you shouldn't make an effort if it can't be a big one. It's easy to forget that the desire to help is enough. Do a little, or do a lot, but do it when you are inspired!

Graupel

Strange weather today: Cold and rainy in the morning, clear and sunny in mid-afternoon, and then a dark and mean-looking line of clouds rolled in just after 5 pm as I was walking across campus. I would have thought a thunderstorm was coming in the summer, but didn't know whether to expect rain or snow this time of year and in this particular (and peculiar) year. We got neither of those:

(Cribbed without shame from Wikipedia.)

Graupel. Not to be confused with Hail or Ice pellets.

While not skating, America's Cup

I just remembered that I've skated on Superbowl Sunday a couple of years in a row, and had made no plans to do it this year. It's nicer outside than it's been most days lately, but that's very faint praise considering what it's been like. Next year, I guess...

So what to do with myself between the Super Bowl and the Winter Olympics? Oh look, the America's Cup starts tomorrow!
