California Dreamin'

All the leaves are brown
And the sky is grey
I've been for a walk
On a winter's day
I'd be safe and warm
If I was in L.A.

California dreaming
On such a winter's day....

Yesterday we had sunny blue skies. This morning I was greeted by this.....Mother Nature keeping me on my toes! :-)

I didn't take a chance and brave the roads today- a lot of carnage out there. I holed up and worked from home. The commute should be interesting tomorrow morning. I may have to jump on the bus, Gus!

that makes my 45 degree run at 6:30 p.m. and the overnight low of 35 seem downright balmy.

The snow sure is pretty, though.

We skipped work yesterday too, but got in today. May be I should have taken another day off - I am scared to drive home.

Skipping work? Your pic looks like summer! Bike commute in 4 degrees F yesterday was a new PR for me. Windproof gear & all is well! Enjoy the dusting Mike!
PS - Doesn't your 4Runner have 4WD??!?!!!!!

Good call on opting to stay home. I'm not much for braving the roads either.

Apparently, it even snowed in parts of The Bay Area! None in SF, though. Thankfully!

Hey, my name is Tim, and I am a founding partner of a new site called EnduranceAthletes.net. It's a FREE online blogging community dedicated to the needs of triathletes, trail runners, marathoners, cyclists, ultra-runners, and anyone else who is dedicated to achieving the mental and physical excellence gained from participation in these sports.

Basically, we know that there are tons of blogs focused on individual endurance athletes, triathletes, cyclists, etc., and our hope is to bring them all together in one place. We provide you with a blog, hosting, image hosting, your own subdomain (yourname.enduranceathletes.net), and support, all for FREE.

We are also able to import your existing blog into our system (for most blog services) - which we will do for you at no cost!

Plus, we'll even help you promote your blog, while opening you to a whole new audience of fellow athletes. We're even in the process of attempting to partner with companies that cater to your endurance sports needs. We hope to provide exclusive discounts and offers to our members through these partners, all without heaping a ton of spam on you.

So, check us out! What have you got to lose?

Tim Moore,

Hey Mike,
I'm going to be heading down your way the weekend of March 11 and again on April 7. I would love to get a (slow) bike tour of the Hagg Lake Oly course, if you have time... Let me know!

My name is Robert Key and I am a runner from Houston, Texas. I saw your blog listed when I was looking through the RBF directory and very much enjoyed reading some of your entries. I plan to do my first Ironman in the next 3 years before I turn 50 (already have 15 marathons under my belt including 3 Bostons).

I have a web site at http://www.faithfulsoles.com that is inspirational stories for walkers, runners and athletes of all ages and abilities. A new feature I have recently added to the site is a categorized and searchable Running Blog Database where members of my site can find a blog of interest to them based on other walkers, runners or athletes of similar abilities, goals and interests. To my knowledge it is the only one of its kind specifically for walkers and runners on the internet. I would appreciate it if you would take a moment to put a link to your blog in our Running Blog Database (olga and robtherunner who responded to this post of yours have already linked their blogs with us). Just click on "Link your running blog" under "Free Features" from the home page. If you want to learn more about my running background, just click on "Meet Robert" from the main menu , or to learn more about my involvement in the running community, click on "Faithful Soles in the news" in the left column under "Weekly Features". I also have a blog that I just started at http://faithfulsoles.blogspot.com, but most of my running information is on my web site. Also, if there is anyone else in your blogger network that you think would be interested in listing their blog, please feel free to pass this information along to them. Thanks and continued good luck in your training.

No updates in awhile Mike - I hope all is well in your training. Cheers!
