Before this morning I'd never heard the word rote. Thanks to DJ's link above i knew the definition when i heard it in a podcast today. Thanks for the knowledge, DJ.
I ran the 10k there a couple of years ago. It's the only race I've ever ran in that had beer stations instead of water stations along the course. Fantastic!
Bob Ross couldn't have painted that picture any better.
I saw Roger Waters at the Schott in 1999. It was my third year at OSU and I was never really that into Pink Floyd like most of my roommates at the time. That show changed my mind and the smog-like atmosphere in the arena altered my mind. It was amazing.
Congrats! That's an amazing accomplishment. I've got several half's and 1 marathon completed. And those were on relatively flat roads. 50 miles in the mountains is insane!!
I was at the game and kept thinking Thad offered the wrong Wesson brother. (Full disclosure: this was the only WS game I've seen all season.)
This looks like a good place to start. I don't recall the exact fund that Buffet picked but I do know it contained mostly S&P 500 companies.
I don't pretend to know much about investing but I did hear on Planet Money the other day about a bet Warren Buffet has with a hedge fund manager. The bet is $1 milion and the term is 10 years. The hedge fund manager is investing in whatever it is hedge fund managers invest in - and - Buffet picked a basic Vanguard indexed fund that anyone can purchase for a very low fee. Through 8 years Buffet is up 60+% and the Hedge fund guy is up 25%.
Your handle and picture just gave me a good laugh. Well done.
That's one of my favorite runs. Whenever I visit this is a must. I like to start on the river a few blocks in on Whacker. It's an amazing way to see the sights.
Also, go to the lounge at the Hancock. It's one floor below the observation deck with the same views plus you can order a drink or five.
Is there anyone we're hoping to get today that hasn't already committed verbally? Excuse the ignorance...I've been out of the recruiting loop this year.
I did the same thing. Rewatched with my 5 yr old. It took us about 10 sittings to get through the 6 movies and he loved them. We went the numerical route - 123456 and then saw 7 in the theater. Episode 1 was probably his favorite because it had a young Anakin, Jar-Jar, and Darth Maul.
I gave that goodbye four to six seconds of relentless effort.
Coach Meyer will be proud. Four to six, A to B.
Blanton's (or any single barrel) is fun in that each bottle is slightly different. That's the appeal of bottles that originate from one barrel instead of small batches or blends.
As someone who took over his father's business, I am really happy for Vince. It's not easy to take over the reigns and keep everything "Above the Line."
Another good one from my 5yo:
Playing I, Spy in the car....
5yo: I spy something that is silver.
After everyone in the car guesses incorrectly a few times he tells us what he spied: dad's hair.
My wife laughed a little too hard at that one...
(I may have a few "silver" hairs on the sides.)
At the dinner table:
5yo: I hate school (daycare).
wife: Well, you better get used to it. You have a long way to go.
5yo: How much longer?
wife: Don't be in such a hurry to finish school. After you're done with school you'll have to work the rest of your life. And that isn't much fun either...unless you're like your dad and work for yourself.
Me: How about that? You could take over dad's business when you finish school. Does that sound like something you'd like to do?
5yo: Yes, but you'll have to drive me because I can't drive.
lol'd, for real
Ha! You'd think an OSU grad would've known that.
That is very interesting. Excuse my ignorance, but what exactly is MAKIO?
That is really cool info about the mall. My wife has family in Minneapolis so if we ever get over there to visit I'll look for this.
That NYT article is great. I didn't know Yost got his coaching start at OWU. There's a lot of fascinating history with this little school.
Most of my runs lately have been in the 4-6 mile range. I'm not training for anything in particular right now just trying to maintain.
