Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States



Wow - I can't believe it's already been a year since the last Cowtown when I gussied up my running clothes with multiple mini stuffed cows (see archives for October 2006 for post and photo). I remember that race pretty well, though, since I was quite unhappy with my time.

This year, Cowtown is simply part of a longer 16-mile training run, since I'm training for the CIM, so it won't be such a big deal if my time isn't fabulous. I'm hoping for a decent 1/2 marathon time, but certainly not expecting anything like my PR at the Davis Stampede back in February.

In the meantime, the more important news is BASEBALL, of course:

  • Red Sox WIN Game 1 vs. the Angels, 4-0. Beckett pitched a beautiful complete-game shut-out. Youk and Big Papi came through with homers. Jacoby pulled off a great catch in left. Gotta love it!
  • Yankees LOSE Game 1 vs. Cleveland in a smackdown 12-3 style. Woo-hoo!
What more could a member of Red Sox Nation wish for in early October??!!

LNJ reflects-

What more could a Red Sox Nation member wish for.... Lets just think about this.

*Clemons are exploding as rabid squirrels eat his left eye.
*Juda$ Daemon going Juda$ Daemon, going completely airhead and just going home early because the A's and Royals missed the Playoffs.
*The Yanks missing the playoffs.
*A cute blonde, a good pint of Sam Addams, and a big ol' flat screen HD TV to watch the games on.
*25% ownership.
*The Yankees and all that is evil with them going on a "Three hour tour". Sound familiar there Gilligan?

That's about all I can think of now, but I'm sure there's more to come. Hugs to you and E.
