WHAT THE HELL DO YOU SAY ABOUT THIS. CHRIS DAVIS JUST RETURNED A MISSED FIELD GOAL 109 YARDS FOR A TOUCHDOWN. ON THE LAST PLAY OF THE GAME. TO BEAT NO. 1 ALABAMA. AUBURN IS 11-1 AND GOING TO PLAY IN THE SEC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME. THIS IS A THING THAT IS HAPPENING. IT DOESN’T SEEM TO BE A DREAM.
THERE IS NOTHING THAT NO ONE WHO WATCHES SPORTS THAT COMPARES TO WHAT JUST HAPPENED IN JORDAN-HARE STADIUM. THE GAME WAS GOING INTO OVERTIME. AND THEN NICK SABAN LOBBIED TO GET AN EXTRA SECOND PUT BACK ON THE CLOCK. AND THEN HE TRIED TO KICK AFTER ALABAMA HAD MISSED THREE FIELD GOALS IN THE GAME. THAT’S HOW IT PLAYED OUT. THAT’S WHAT HAPPENED. HOW DID THAT HAPPEN? WHERE ARE WE AND WHAT IS THIS EXISTENCE. ARE SPORTS CANCELED FROM HERE ON OUT, OR DO WE CALL SPORTS SOMETHING ELSE FROM NOW ON? BECAUSE NOTHING ANYONE EVER WATCHES THAT IS LABELED AS “SPORTS” WILL EVER BE IN THE SAME UNIVERSE AS THE 2013 IRON BOWL. AUBURN 34, ALABAMA 28 IS SOMETHING ELSE.
Tumblr, repeat after me: War Eagle.
It is 23 degrees in Alabama. And I got home from work at 8pm delaying my departure to my parents until tomorrow. But I did have a new Garmin 620 on my doorstep when I got home. My trusty 410 hasn’t been holding a charge lately (and resetting randomly at times) plus its been beat to hell and back so I upgraded.
It is really cold outside so I just ran to the end of the road and back.. I ran at a steady jog, then walked a bit then a fast (for me) run then walk back to the house.
I love charts and I’m still trying to figure out what these mean.
One thing to note, the first dip in my heart rate just after the 1:40 mark? All breathing. I consciously forced myself to breathe deeper. I have a bad habit of ‘shallow breathing’ when running.
I saw a picture of my friend Alex (you might remember him, we did Tri 101 together) on Facebook and he was wearing two race bibs, I didn’t really understand it until I just saw his Garmin Connect entry.
He started a 50k trail run, then left the race course and ran down the mountain (about 1,000 feet in 4 miles), joined up with the Krispy Kreme Challenge (run 2 miles to Krispy Kreme ate 12 donuts, ran 2 miles back), finished that race, then kept going back up the mountain and finished the trail run. 44 miles in under 9 hours. I’m completely in awe.
Just left the dentist. No cavities!
UPDATE! The suspicious package attached to a train car containing hazardous material was 1-2kg of marijuana coming in from Mexico.
This shut down at least 12 schools and a community college.
Lots of excitement in Alabama today.. there’s a hazardous rail car with a ‘suspicious device’ on it in the next city over. All the schools in a 25 mile radius are evacuated.
There’s also apparently a mass murder trial going on too.
Potluck paleo Wednesday! Casey cooked tonight. Mustard like chicken and spaghetti squash.
