I'm sore today. Need to lift at least twice a week if I'm going to do it without it killing me the next day. 

Still got a decent 8 miles in at Liberty Park in the late morning. Hot but lots of shade. Ran several long striders at the end. Felt good on them.

Because I started around 11 am today, I missed Doug Fabrizio and Radio West. If I wasn't me I'd probably want to be Doug Fabrizio. He hosts a daily show here in Salt Lake, but syndicated all over the west and on satellite, called Radio West. In my opinion, Fabrizio is one of the best interviewers working today. His daily show is way more informative than any TED talk. The reason I'd like to be him is because he gets to let his mind roam over a wide array of topics (check out his guest lists) which would never get boring. Also, he gets to educate and inform without the worst aspect of teaching - grading papers.

If you live outside of Salt Lake you can subscribe to his podcasts or listen online at

Thanks Rob, I'll for sure take a look. A friend of mine recommended TED talk but I haven't got around to the site yet.
