Run 2020.10.26
As weather worsens for through the autumn I notice I'm running a bit more sluggishly. Part of it is switching to heavier running shoes and away from sandals and minimalist shoes. It would be nice to find a good minimal shoe that is affordable and can stand up to the winter weather that will be here all too soon.

Cybertronic Spree – “Dare To Be Stupid”

Cybertronic Spree's video for their wonderful cover of "Weird Al" Yankovic is a thrilling tribute to his work and just so much fun.

Run 2020.10.24

I'm nearing the end of my re-run of the seventh season of Zombies, Run! and the worst of the bad politics is behind me if memory serves me well. I was running in the rain and slipped coming off the bridge, so some pain in my hands from catching myself was more worry than the story.

Music 2020.10.16-2020.10.22

This week I've been enjoying some fantastic new music. G Yamazawa's new EP is particularly nice.

Run 2020.10.23

Before work this morning I ran the Die Rise 5K virtual race and was happy with my pace and the story. I was able to finish with a 5:05 pace, which was good enough to place me in the top 7 GPS-tracked times so far.

Conquer 2020 Virtual Challenge Complete

Yesterday I ran my 1000th kilometer for 2020 and met my Conquer 2020 Virtual Challenge goal. When I started the challenge in January I felt confident I would be able to keep on track and I'm happy I was able to even with the complications that the pandemic and parenthood threw my way.

Run 2020.10.22

The second training mission for the virtual race I plan to run tomorrow morning was what I expected after the first. I'm looking forward to seeing where the story goes.

Xenoblade Chronicles Relaxation

7 Minutes of Relaxation with Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition is a soothing presentation of landscapes and music from the game, two aspects that set it apart.

Run 2020.10.21

This morning I ran the first training mission for Die Rise, this year's Halloween Virtual Race from Zombies, Run! There are Judge Dredd nods and oversized police state elements to this story and so far I'm intrigued.

Cults – “A Low”

Cults have released a vibrant, mesmerizing video for their latest single, "A Low" from the album Host.

Run 2020.10.20

My run today meandered around until I could end at the grocery store to pick up a few things before work, and I was definitely not as quick as I would otherwise be.

Run 2020.10.19

It was threatening to rain throughout my run, but the air was warmer than I expected and it was nice to run under the turned leaves.

Run 2020.09.02

I'm finally at the mid-point of the worst Zombies, Run! season, and I promised myself I would take a break for some other missions before finishing my rerun of this season. I couldn't be more relieved to be running stories that don't make me cringe so much.

Project 365 2020.08.25-2020.08.31

For each day I share a photo on my account at apollo. Here are shots from the past week.

Run 2020.09.01

I'm varying my typical afternoon route to meander through some trails before arriving at my destination.

Conquer 2020 Virtual Challenge August

I covered less distance in August than I have in previous months, with some obligations keeping me from running. I have under 150 km left to cover to hit my 1000 km goal for 2020, so I'm on track to hit that before October is up.

Run 2020.08.31

I've started a second week in a row running after my workday. With my days being as busy as they've been in a long while it's a nice reset for the evening.


Orbital is another no dice, no masters and belonging outside belonging game being Kickstarted. It's a Sci Fi RPG set on a space station and promises to deliver a fantastic narrative experience. And look at the popping art!

I've played a lot of D&D, and it works well for combat and crunchy play, but for story-focused gaming no dice, no masters is my preferred way to play.
