Ironman St. George 2010

Tags: Ironman Training — 7:15 am Comments (4)

I’m signed up for Ironman St. George (Utah) scheduled for 5/1/2010.  The rest of the Ironman Series can be found here.

  • It will be the first year for Ironman St. George.
  • I like it because it’s drivable (about 10 hours away).
  • I was lucky to be able to get some friends to sign up too, about 4 others so far.
  • Ironman St. George will be my sixth race and I’d like to sign up for Ironman France in June to get my seventh race out of the way since the timing is so close.  I still have to get permission from the big boss lady and be successful with the sign up first.

Yea, looking forward to it but won’t really start training for it until November.

Some good ideas for a vegetable garden (especially for people with a new empty backyard).

Another cool photo.  Discovery launch — supposed to launch in two days if the weather cooperates.

The Last Great Race on Earth

Thought this was a neat photo set from The Big Picture blog.  There are some crazy races out there, the Badwater Ultramarathon is up there but the multiday endurance races in extremely cold or hot weather are the ones that are even crazier for me.

IQAir air purifier

Tags: Home Improvement — 12:07 pm Comments (3)

My parents got one of these whole home IQAir air purifiers installed in their house.  I like IQAir’s room air purifiers too, e.g. the HealthPro Plus — looks like it’s won some awards and both the whole house and in-room purifiers are probably worth a look if you’ve got health issues.  I guess these are what they’ve been installing in homes for the Extreme Makeover Home Edition shows.

I like radiant heating systems the best (which we don’t have and don’t plan on doing for our house) because they’re the most efficient and provide the best type of heat, but it doesn’t help when it’s hot and you need an air conditioner.  For most people, forced air heating and cooling system is best and might as well check out the IQAir purifier while you’re at it.
