Having a bad day? Now you have something to blame!

And what could that be? Why Drew’s cancer! You see:

“On May 20th, 2009, Drew Olanoff was diagnosed with cancer. Ever since that day, Drew has blamed everything on his cancer. Losing his keys, misplacing his wallet, Twitter being slow, the Phillies losing, etc. Why? Because you have to beat up on Cancer to win… and you can help out.”

How? Well go to his site, Blame Drew’s Cancer – Blow off Steam on Twitter… for Charity! and you can get all the details.

Tiananmen Square

Execution by Beijing artist Yue Minjun. This work was inspired by the events of Tiananmen Square that occurred 20 years ago, in 1989.
Incidentally, Wikipedia reminded me of this painting by Manet of the execution of Emperor Maximillien of Mexico. The influence is strong.

Time to Train for Your First Marathon?

If you have been running for awhile — and even if you haven’t — you may be considering running your first marathon. If you are, first off, congratulations on making such a decision (when you do make it). Having made that decision, what do you do next? Well, consider reading this post: Time to Train for Your First Marathon on the Well Blog at NYTimes.com. Not only does the blog itself have good information, but it also has links to other great sites, such as Bill Rodgers.

What are you waiting for! Get training! 🙂
