Fourth Picture, Fourth File

Viv is part of a virus going around the blogs. You're supposed to post your fourth picture from your fourth file on your computer. Here's mine.
It's a photo from around 1985 of an apartment across the street from Washington University in St. Louis, MO. It was the second place I lived in after college. I shared it with two Econ grad students, Pete and Chris. I got real cheap rent, because my room was the second floor porch that you see in the photo. No heat, except for what came thru the door from the living room and from my space heater. I have to include the next photo too.

That's my first car. An early 80's Toyota Corolla Hatchback. Rust color. Even the hubcaps. It's in the parking lot of home #3, a cool apartment with green shag carpeting. I took over payments from my brother Thom, on that car. Not sure what the numbers are for. I scanned this image from a real photo.

On The Running Front

No running this week. I've been on the elliptical machine, stationary bike and I've lifted some weights. My plan was to run the Dobson Ranch 5k on Saturday morning. It's a small race and I was hoping to place in my age group. Kinda by default. Well, the race was cancelled. I guess it was too small.

My choices for running this weekend are to do the Gilbert Days 5k that is tonight. Or the Nike Cross Nationals Citizen 5k on Saturday morning.

Or I guess I could do the Arizona Ironman. Is it to late to sign up for that? Maybe that's something you should train for? Let me know which race you think I should do.

Of course you could do neither and come out and do the ARR Thanksgiving Day 5k instead. It's a fast course.

Chad, I was planning on doing the Mesa Turkey Trot on Bird Day. But, the 10 miler that finishes in the Mariners/Padres Stadium looks pretty cool too. See, you are just complicating things.

4th file in the 4th folder... but how do you define 4th? Alphabetical order? Date order? I'M CONFUSED!!!

Do the Ironman. You are ready. :)

I'm gonna have to try the 4/4 thing. I have no clue what's there, but my guess it's also a building, since my husband uses the same computer for work.

I vote for a 5k.
