I Hate Being a Late-Season Bloomer

I attempted a flat 10-mile time trial the other day. Now, you may recall that I did one of those back in June or so and managed to come in somewhere in the second third of the entrants. Honestly, I was pretty excited about my spot where it was at the time.

But now things have changed. I added a set of aero bars to the bike. I picked a course that, although it has no turn around, it also has no tailwind section. But those are the only major differences–and I figure they balance each other out.

So what was the result: I’m about a minute and a half faster now. Why couldn’t that have been the case four months ago? I dunno, motivational issues perhaps(?). Either that, or mebbe those aeros make a bigger difference than I think.

P.S. I think I figured out how I can publish blogs from work. I’ll tell you more about that later.

    Thanks for all the latest on the Post Register gossip. So is Margaret the managing editor now? What happened to Dean? I looked at the staff list, and it amazes me how many people who worked there two years ago have stayed. I should have stayed too. What with their stock option retirement plan and all of their recent aquisitions, I bet the lifers are rolling in dough.

    I should clarify: I think Dean\’s still the EinC at the Post, but Margaret\’s running their other newspapers–the Jefferson one and whatever the other new acquisition was … I don\’t recall. I\’ll bet you\’d find the details in the PR article archive somewhere. I know Kortney moved on to a paper in Boise. PZuckerman moved on to California (possibly to marry his significant other–although I don\’t think that\’s legal in Calif yet), Rob\’s still doing whatever Rob does (I think they\’ve actually expanded his section a little). They did a redesign a few months ago, and the paper\’s a little prettier now.
    I wish I had more info for you, but they all stopped talking to me when I took my current job–I\’m with the enemy now, you know.
