...First things first: a 100-cc cute kid injection:

I promise we will be posting more of Gavin in the very near future, but there is another piece of business to attend to. Some of you may have noticed my running goal meter on the side of the blog recently, and if you have you have also seen that, alas...I did not meet my goal of 100 miles in 8 weeks. Oops. I can explain, though. I ran a half marathon in April that pretty much finished me off for a few weeks:

So, mileage was a problem there for awhile. BUT, I have not given up the pursuit of ultimate fitness, and I am still trying to run more often. To that end I have made a new goal, to run 180 miles by August, making it an even 500 miles since I starting running back in September of last year. Having a goal that everyone can monitor really helps in the motivation department, so if you see that I am slacking send me a line (or comment on this post) either of admonishment or encouragement (the latter is preferred, but the former may be more appropriate). To anyone that is interested, the Nike+ system is an awesome tool, and now you don't even need an iPod to use it. I highly recommend it.
Also, be on the lookout for new music by, um, me. Hopefully in the next few weeks.
