Yet another running post

According to my iPhone it was a crisp 44°F when I left the house to run at 5:45 this morning.

Once you’ve lived in Los Angeles for over a decade, that counts as “cold as hell”. I wore a hat and one of my Gator hooded sweatshirts, but by the time I hit 1.5 miles I was soaking with sweat. The sweatshirt felt like it weighed about twenty pounds, and even my battered white Providence College hat felt heavy on my head.

I’d like to get one of those long-sleeved Nike t-shirts for the winter, maybe.

Here are the tracks I heard on my run:

What Is This? is the personal weblog of me, David Vincent Gagne. I've been publishing here since 1999, which makes this one of the oldest continuously-updated websites on the Internet.

A few years ago I was trying to determine what cocktails I could make with the alcohol I had at home. I searched the App Store but couldn't find an app that would let me do that, so I built one.
