Hello All! Just two things for you guys today, as apparently when one goes on a conference FOR WORK, I still come home to double the amount of work I am responsible for . . . so I haven't much time to write today.

First, a XKCD strip for all of you nerds:


Secondly, Mark wrote up a fantastic set of pointers for all you newer runners who are preparing for your first, or eventual 5k runs. Check it out! I get asked a lot about how to get started, or things you should do, and he does a really good job of putting it into words. Along the same lines, for those of you who are interested in getting started, Amy also wrote a post not too long ago about getting to that first 5k race. Check them out, lots of great tips in there.
