Runners, did you know there are 2 types of fartlek, New Zealand and Swedish? I didn't, but there they are in Bowerman's 1967 book "Jogging"!

Oh, man, people throw the word "genius" around too much, except when it comes to Lynda Barry, when it's too little. She's So Good.

It shouldn't be remarkable, but I guess it is; so used to NPR's generally excellent journalists that I didn't realize it while listening…

Yesterday at the National Aquarium. Not a Wolverine, but still, Go Blue. (Don’t even play touch football with these, though.)

Things are good when you’re spending a day w/ and an astronaut, and astro tells a passing friend “We’re making a comic book.”

Had a lousy ½ (70°+max humidity=cramps), but still thankful: the course & volunteers are still beautiful even if I wasn't.
