Great Run! and Google Earth

I stayed up a bit late last night playing with Google Earth. It really blows my mind the level of detail that they have all over the world, not to mention when the program “flies” you from one place on Earth to another–I actually felt a bit of vertigo!

I was looking at places where I was in Nepal, even finding a route that very much matched Mary’s and mine when when we trekked the Annapurna range in 1990. I uploaded a few images, including some pictures I took at Pearl Harbor when visiting the USS Arizona Memorial Museum. And I was very naughty to stay up as long as I did.

I was a bit intimidated thinking of running 7 miles, but also knew I could do it, even if I had to take my time. Take a peek at the route I ran, if you’re interested. My average speed was 5.83 mph (that’s a 10:16 mile–I think in mph…). Not bad for a longer run! Now I’m even more confident that I can run the 13.1 miles well.

Josh is busy today, so it’s a great opportunity to get lots of stuff done. I’m very behind in laundry, kitchen, and other housework, and I have to work on some other projects and presentations as well before the Varsity Band concert tonight.
