National Geographic: Best photos of 2018
Dr. Jack Daniels on the treadmill downhill. Because it’s often cold and rainy, I’m on the treadmill more often. Tried doing downhill 400s at 2%. About 35 minutes worth. Kinda fun and safe.
Recent reads I liked:

Past Tense …Mint condition. First edition. Autographed. $14. And then spilled coffee on it.
Why Calendars are More Effective Than To Do Lists. On your resolve to lose weight, or other such worthy (maybe even life saving) goals, try short interim target dates, with a pass or fail grade on each date.
More Concept 2 stuff. On 12/23 I reported a 10:13 for the 2000m row. Today I did 9:53. Damper set on 3 and was below 2:30 per 500m pace on most strokes, and then kicked hard the last two minutes. Still had juice at the end. It’s fun. Really.
