No Electricity

Along Broad People moved to the beat of the music blasted over the loudspeakers. I could see it in footsteps. Tapping water bottles. Tapping feat. Bouncing knees. Shifting weight. Dancing. Nervous jiggling of hanging feet. I could tell some of it was conscious. But most of it just moved through the blood and ebb and […]

Just Thinking Out Loud

Its Thursday, so I’ve had some exposure to the race crowd by now. It’s time to get to business thinking about what I have noticed and I would like to start with a free prompt. To my pleasant surprise there seems to be some diversity in participants in this race. I was lucky enough to get

My Marathon Nutrition

Over the past few years I have run 3 different marathons ,half a dozen half marathons and relays ( usually 200 miles spread among 10 people).  My nutrition  strategies have stayed pretty consistent throughout all of these activities with a little tweaking here and there to cover holes found in previous endeavors.  Focusing on the marathon, I

Race Crowd

If I had to describe the race crowd, I would have to agree with one of the people that surveyed. She said, and I quote “It’s quite homogenous”. The diverseness of the crowd is not what I expected. I thought it’d be more racially diverse. But it really wasn’t.  I saw some people of colour … Continue reading Race Crowd

Entrepreneurship Interviews

Comment on Assignment 4 from cloningerk… “I interviewed 8 more people today. I fortunately came up with 3 new ideas. A couple people I interviewed mentioned their bike were stolen because they didn’t properly lock their bikes. Several of the people I interviewed said they wanted to travel the world on bike. One customer thought…

Moving Squares

My goals – squatting 315 pounds and writing a record with my band – would certainly benefit from an increased capacity for self-control. Baumeister discussed how setting small, easily achievable challenges throughout the day could strengthen the brain’s capacity for self-control in the long run; for example, challenging yourself to switch from right- to left-hand […]
