There is a guy in town with whom I share a name, though we are only very distantly related. And let's face it, it's not like my name is Smith or Jones or even something as common as McGillicuddy. And my first name usually doesn't make the top 10... Read more

Tomorrow, pictures from the weekend, I promise. Marathonfoto just downloaded a pile of URLs for the pictures. They are all sideways and not at all sorted by time or mile marker. So I need to go through them first. In the meantime ... ... Read more
