The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 14 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

One month ago I decided to run a marathon…a dash…a run. Something.

Today I picked up my race bib (#9885), my timing chip, and my shirt. I also calibrated my Nike + iPod by running over to Roosevelt High School and running around their track a couple of times. I also finalized my iPod music, which has been carefully and scientifically calibrated to be awesome:

In terms of running, here’s a synopsis of what I’ve been doing:

My goal is to run the entire thing with under 8 minutes/mile (about 5 minutes/kilometer) and I think I can actually do it! All that’s left to do is go run! Sunday morning, 8:40am, Belltown, be there.

Update: I created an iMix for iTunes: Run Mix 1
