I was quite happy to find that the polling place line was only 16 seconds long. Woohoo! After reading Lesser’s post, I was fairly concerned I’d have to read through the last 6 months worth of free Cycling and Triathlon magazines that seem to show up in my mailbox.
Speaking of lines – did you know that in Washington State (and I assume other locations) most counties don’t even have polling places anymore? That’s sad. I remember very clearly always going up to my elementary school to vote with my parents on election day. No more.
However, in positive voting news – I found out this morning I was nominated as one of the ‘10 Best Sport Endurance Blogs of 2008’ by EverymanTri. Wootage! Thanks to all who nominated me, and of course – even more so – thanks to all who read all my ramblings.
Of course, there are some awesome blogs on that list out there that I read religiously – like Steve in a Speedo and Triboomer. So I’m up against some stiff competition. But…I’d appreciate a vote. Ya see, I need a new pair of sunglasses. And the ones they give to the winners – they look stylish. And remember my turkey costume? Or showering with my bike. I could see how someone might think I need some style.
So vote here..for style. Or vote cause ya like me. Either way…
In other news – I’ve been making all sorts of good pumpkin stuffs this week. At a rate of two things per day. They’ll be a massive pumpkin post in the next few days, kinda like the blueberry one.
Oh, and I knocked out 15 miles on the track this morning. It was the perfect track morning. Overcast, cool, and just barely misting/raining. Things went quite well. I start tapering next week for the Philly Marathon.
