Biking: in addition to the Log Chutes ride last Saturday, Britt and I drove out to near Pagosa Springs, about 45 minutes from here, and rode up Devil Mountain, which has a rough and rocky road leading to a cleared summit that used to have a fire lookout tower. Not quite 12 miles up and 3500 vertical feet, woohoo! A few photos are here.

Running: I can run again! Sort of! My PT has given me clearance to alternate 5 minutes of slow running with 5 minutes of walking, after a walking warm-up. I did this 3x on Thursday and 4x this morning, and it's not causing the tendinitis to flare up, hooray! It's still going to be a long road to where I was as a runner, though.

Argh: I am annoyed more than I should be by people who email me - at an address that includes my name - and then misspell my name in the body of the email. ARGH. Also I am annoyed by people who are told that the deadline for the political newsletter I send out is Thursday noon, who then email me on Thursday at 2:30 pm with their news release prefaced by, "Thank you for holding the newsletter for this information." (It should not surprise anyone that someone has committed both these annoyances simultaneously. Also that I did not, in fact, hold the newsletter for that information.)

Fun: The newsletter deadline was Thursday noon because Thursday afternoon we drove out to Montezuma Creek, Utah to start a river trip on the San Juan. An exciting and scenic weekend that was not ruined by the roughly fifty bazillion gnats that each took a bite of my tender flesh. More details when I get the photos off the camera.

Administrivia: If you have a Dreamwidth journal and a LJ, I preferentially will read you at DW and will subtly filter you out at LJ. I also filter out those I read through another journal. If I read you at DW and you read me at DW you are welcome to defriend me at LJ. I don't do the subscribe-and-filter thing at Dreamwidth since there are separate access and subscription filters, but if the asymmetry bothers you, let me know, and I will cheerfully subscribe to you and then ignore you. Okay, not really, but you know what I mean.

And now I am off to a political thingy that didn't get into the newsletter. I will try to be polite to the campaign manager who annoyed me, see above.

YAY!

Your bike ride looks fantastic. (Yay for serendipitous spring!)

And I'm glad to hear that you're easing your way back into running - that's very good news.

Yay for running, biking, and especially rafting! I am jealous (though not of your gnat bites, which I am slowly accumulating on my own self.)

Hahaha, I feel your pain. It's like: can you read? I would say that it makes me assume things about their intelligence, their regard for me personally, and their attitude towards people who aren't them, but it happens so often that I can't always assume it's because they are jerks.

I have an Italian friend living here whose name is spelled the same as an English name but pronounced entirely differently; it is almost shocking how many people continue to use the English pronunciation even though she introduces herself with the correct one, and most of her friends (though not all!) have it right. Actually, thinking about it, I know two people who have that problem. Most people are just seriously resistant to noticing things.

who then email me on Thursday at 2:30 pm with their news release prefaced by, "Thank you for holding the newsletter for this information."

I assume they didn't notify you in advance that it would be late and ask if you could hold the newsletter? That sounds like a fairly impressive entitlement complex.
