Running Calorie Counter

Here is a site that has a pretty good Calorie counter.

I like it because it takes into account what you weigh, how fast you go and how long you run.

Flash Animation--not to be missed!

This is really good. I have played it on my PC and on my daughter's Mac, so just about anybody should be able to view it with no troubles. It is a fight between a lootiefull* stick-figure and his creator. It is called Animator vs. Animation II. There is so much going on on the screen that you will have to view it a few times to get all the details. Of course, this is part of a whole genre of stick-figure flash animations... Enjoy, dbp

Lootie is a Konkani* word which means what it sounds like: Full of mischief.

Konkani is the ethnic group centered around Goa, India. And the Konkani word for Konkani (the language) is Amchicala. FWIW.

My Sunday 13.5 miler.

The Good news: I haven't run this far since I was 18. The bad news is that it took me 116 minutes (8:35 per mile) That is 35 seconds/mile off of what I need to do in a marathon and this was only a little more than half-marathon length.
