hodge to the podge

random post.

1) things you should use your paycheck for, other than winterizing your home/apartment:
iron and wine - the shepherd's dog
band of horses - cease to begin
the white buffalo - EP
into the wild - the movie...but if you're a quick reader, read the book first. also, this is probably a good forum to ask who has my copy...i know a lent it out..please make yourself known.

2) i finally got the fairway flyer back this week! after almost two months at the bike shop, they found the correct replacement parts. i rode it around all night monday, super excited. now it's in my garage waiting for more chrome polishing and some new hardware - some of the screws have lost their threading, etc. but it's amazingly sound and rises like a dream. right in time for winter...sheesh.

3) i'm shopping for a trainer for my roadie, on which i'll spend the winter pedaling in place in my living room. anyone know of good training dvds? i'm actually excited to spend more time on the bike this winter...i hate running in the super-cold mornings, this would give me a nice alternative.

4) i am pretty obsessed with wine library tv's video blog.

that's about it. enjoy your wednesday.

Have you ever used an indoor trainer, Andy? I have tried it a few times over the years and found it to be a very sweaty experience. It's amazing how much the lack of wind affects your temperature.

Hey, I just saw Into The Wild this weekend too. What a great flick...

I'm also curious as to what type of training you use for your marathons. I'm working up to the half, but next spring would like to do a full.

And in case you haven't heard, David is moving to Houston in a couple weeks. Flyin' solo down here in Charleston now.
