Fall is in the air

Today we were on the Hallerin Hilton Hill Morning Show in WNOX 100.3 for a few minutes this morning in support of ASD Athletes! Special thanks to Legacy Firms for allowing us time while they were the broadcasting location for his show this morning. Even Eric Chessen from Autism Fitness was able to share his involvement with ASD Athletes.

I have had Windows 7 on my computer for about 2-3 weeks now. Most of the known universe got Windows 7 this week. Me Likey! There are just a few things that are a little quirky about it, my biggest complaint being that when a new window is created as a result of an action, it doesn’t automatically show up. The Taskbar flashes. I know that there is an option (somewhere) that will remedy my problem.

My biggest issue has been my iRiver ifp895. It’s an archaic item (in the realm of electronics) and while it played well (most of the time) with Windows XP, it does play well with Windows 7. I have the driver file for the iRiver, but it’s not a *.inf file, it is rather the actual *.sys file. Windows 7 completely ignores the file and so I can’t load the device. I say this because my audio from the World Wide Half marathon is there and I am wanting to download it so that I can create the next episode of Gravity@1053′! This is the 3rd audio that I have recorded for this podcast episode, and yet, the audio seems to be outdated before I can get it downloaded. I think that I will be getting a new device, something that is a little more streamlined when it comes to retrieving the audio.


I was trying to compile my running log on Thursday, since I had something logged in Buckeye Outdoors, but something not. I am surprised at my HUGE LACK of running this year! It’s ridiculous. I did update the Race Results on my site to reflect through this year. It was somewhere stuck in October of 2008… Wah? I haven’t broken any of my PRs this year, so that info is the same. My next “issue” is resolve my shoe mileage. I currently have 2 different Symmetrys in rotation right now, I have to figure out what the mileage is on them. If I need new running shoes before the Flying Monkey Marathon (Nov 22 2009), I need to start breaking them in now!


The leaves are starting to change here and it’s making for some awesome opportunities for me and Stella! Hopefully will be able to get out and about this weekend. I am, if schedule allows, going to do a long run this week… I am looking for something for 15-17 miles. It’s an away game for the Tennessee Volunteers, so that should make getting around town pretty easy. Good luck to all those racing this weekend!

Oh and next week, I think it’s time for a new WordPress theme around these parts!
