It's a 5K on September 28th.

I know the Gil Hodges Disease is a chronic condition but this is just over the bridge.

Is anyone doing this?

Enormous New Zealand brown trout is possibly a world record

Otwin Kandolf said the brown trout he caught recently in New Zealand looked like a submarine because it was so long and abnormally fat. The behemoth, caught in a canal near a salmon farm, weighed 42 pounds, 1 ounce. It’s the heaviest brown trout ever caught in New Zealand and could land Kandolf in the book of world records.

The weigh-in can be viewed here, via Channel 3 News.
“I just couldn’t believe it. It looked to me like a submarine,” Kandolf told the news station. “Very ugly, small head, big belly … Just amazing.”
The Channel 3 News report states that the fish is three pounds short of the world record. However, that report is erroneous as the International Game Fish Association, which keeps world records, lists a 41-pound, 8-ounce brown trout as the all-tackle world record.
That specimen was pulled from Lake Michigan in 2010.
If Kandolf submits his catch to the IGFA, and it’s approved, Kandolf will be recognized as the world-record holder.
The trout measured 36.6 inches long and 10.6 inches wide. Apparently it got so plump, and heavy, by feeding on pellets that drifted downstream from the salmon farm.
Kandolf plans to have the catch mounted to hang on his wall.

There’s nothing more gratifying than surfing a board you’ve made yourself. What makes a magical surfboard has been wrapped in mystique. More than any other water sport, surfers have a close relationship with their equipment, where boards are fine tuned for different conditions, different locations and different styles of surfing. In this class we’ll be breaking down the basic elements of surfboard design and you’ll be shaping your own board from scratch to fit the way you surf. Students will learn how to create a template, shape the foam blank and choose fin placement for a traditional fiberglass board in eps/epoxy.

 The class will cover planning and design, creating a template, cutting and shaping outline and rocker, marking and shaping rail bands, shaping bottom contours, sealing the blank, designing logos, board color and art styles, and marking fin placement.

 Students will finish the class with a shaped surfboard blank, ready to be glassed with fins or fin boxes. At the end of the workshop, students will have the option of sending their board to a local glass shop to be fiberglassed and have fins added for an additional cost.

The maximum board size will be 7 feet.  If you don’t have a board design in mind, several templates will be provided. Students who complete the class will have a finished blank with fin marks, ready to be glassed.  Please be sure you can commit to all 5 sessions - you will need the full time to finish shaping your board.

Which ones are you using? Do you just use dailymile, mapmyrun or something?

Hope you have a great one!

It just doesn't get more ridiculous than this.Julie Bass of Oak Park, Michigan -- a mother of 6, law-abiding citizen, and gardener -- is facing 93 days in jail after being charged with a misdemeanor.
Her crime? Planting a vegetable garden in the front yard.

Bass says that she planted the garden after her front yard was torn up for some sewer repairs. Rather than wasting the opportunity to start with a clean slate by planting a lawn, she decided to really put the area to use, and plant a vegetable garden.
Her garden consists of 5 raised beds, where she grows a mix of squashes, corn, tomatoes, flowers, and other veggies. Bass received a warning from the city telling her to remove the vegetable garden, because it doesn't adhere to city ordinances (more on that later.) When she refused, she was ticketed and charged with a misdemeanor. Her trial, before a jury, is set to begin on July 26th. If she is found guilty, she can be sentenced to up to 93 days in jail.
About the City Ordinance
Supposedly, Bass is in noncompliance with a city ordinance that states that only "suitable" plant material is allowed on the lawn area of residences. When local media asked city planner Kevin Rulkowski what that meant, he said suitable means "common:" lawn, nice shrubs, and flowers. However, the city ordinance does not specifically state that those are the only allowed plant materials.
About Oak Park

This is not some gated community with HOA regulations. This is an ordinary, working class neighborhood in Oakland County, Michigan. Like nearly every other city in my home state right now, Oak Park is facing financial issues. Here at home, people are amazed that a cash-strapped city has the resources to investigate, charge, and prosecute a resident for something as innocuous as planting a vegetable garden.

Back issues of "Surfing" and "Transworld Surf" are available to anyone that wants them. Also have a ton of books that could go to a good home. If interested, PM me a subject you're interested and I'll let you know what titles I have.
