AVI-SPL

Just hired at AVI-SPL to build some awesome audiovisual systems. I’m looking forward to working with this great organization and interacting with the many talented people on staff. This is going to be an adventure.

Skittle Fondue

Mike Niemi and his family joined us for a night of fondue. We had chocolate fondue along with cheese and broth for meat. When Alexis was speaking to Mike at Awana, he joked that she should dip her Skittles in chocolate fondue.

Alexis said, “That’s like an inside out M&M.”

RunKeeper

It’s been about two years now that I’ve started running regularly. The RunKeeper app for iPhone has been an effective motivator because it offers free training plans. I am doing the sub 55 minute 10K. RunKeeper tracks my route and elevation using GPS. It also has a heart rate monitor using the chest strap from Wahoo. After the run I can analyze the run on RunKeeper.com and see my speed, pace, elevation, heart rate and elapsed time with a pinpoint on a map. So I can see my heart rate and speed change as I climb the killer hill.

I’m up to nine miles now and will run ten next week. Robert Gauthier and I run together occasionally – he’s crazy into running.
