If you're a science fiction fan, check out a series called Koban by Stephen Bennett. Mr. Bennett is self publishing these, but his writing and story telling are better than 90% of traditionally published authors I have read. It is a really good story. He's working on the 5th in the series now.

The Umstead trail marathon on March 7 was cancelled due to all the snow and slush around here. I was bummed and sad but then I found the Northern Trails Marathon in Greensboro on March 15. Then I was worried my wife would say "No Marty, no can go, bad Marty, time out!" but instead she said "Go have fun, just don't suck," and I was happy again.
So I'll be running a trail marathon this Sunday instead of last Saturday. I have no competitive goals and feel a little past my expiration date on marathon training. I'm looking forward to riding my bike a little more regularly.
We had a number of bad cold days around here and it was fun for about two of them. I couldn't live in Boston et al for more than a year or two. I am sure of that.
We went to Rita and Kyle's wedding last weekend. It was fun and they did a good job of not passing out during the vows and everything. Junior Awesome was a ring bearer and did a great job. Of course, duh.
There are many fun things coming up this summer, so many that I can't remember any of them right now.
