Monday Monologue #30

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).

  • Our daughter is playing really well this spring. We’ve been there from the beginning (obviously); but she is fun to watch when she’s on her game. She can consistently do things without even thinking about it that I could never do; or, if I could, would take my full focus.
  • Like a LOT of other people, I’d like to run in Boston next year. It’s kinda frustrating because I’m not quite fast enough to qualify (rather than enter the lottery) but I’m close. I almost wish I was a much slower runner so I the lottery would be my only choice and I wouldn’t be wondering if there is a super-fast course out there or I could drop my time enough if I trained really hard.
  • We’ve semi-permanently moved our photo sessions to Wednesday. We didn’t mind the long day on Tuesday; but it makes our mid-week evenings much more balanced. Especially since we both seem to be completing our work for the day somewhat later than we used to.
  • I’m becoming more and more confident that I’ve finally fixed the intermittent issue we were having with the car. I’m not completely certain that it is fixed; but it hasn’t happen again since the recent repairs.


  1. Not sure what the run in Boston is going to look like next year after what happened this year. You can be damned sure there will be hepped-up security for it :/

    • Kazi: I guess the extra security is good. But what can you really do when you’ve got that many people? Search everyone’s water bottles? And, realistically, there are marathons every weekend, many in cities without nearly as many resources as Boston. I once ran in one where the entire course wasn’t even closed to vehicular traffic.
