Return to posting!

Nope! Not yet I'm afraid. Another 4 days of work, so possibly a few posts in the upcoming week in my downtime, but I'm still a bit preoccupied with my research, and also other annoyances that come to mind (hi grad school!). I just wanted to update my run counter, since it bothers me that it's a few days behind.

Anyway, I did a short 2.78 mile run to 國父紀念館 (Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall) yesterday to meet a friend from school. Did I mention it was raining still? I thought, for some reason, that the rain would get lighter as the typhoon left the island, but apparently I was wrong. I ended up being drenched, not entirely because of the rain, but whatever. This morning (evening for the NYC folks), I did a 10k and then a bit more (6.37 miles). I was planning on just doing a 4 miler, but I felt like since I took so many days off, I had to prove to myself that I could actually do a longer distance run (not that the 10k is long by any stretch... just longer than what I've been doing a.k.a. 0 miles). Maybe if I feel up to the task, I'll do the 4 mile mountain loop in the area behind my lab today... maybe.

distance for the day: 9.15 miles
distance biked for the day: 0.00 miles

distance on the year: 467.80 miles
distance biked on the year: 142.68 miles

Hey Nicholas, got linked to your blog through Joan's Hungry in Taipei. I'll be traveling solo to Taipei next week and would love to meet up with fellow foodies for a pow-wow, let me know if you're keen to hang out! :)

(Sorry, am having trouble signing into Google at work, will do so at home!)
