Morning run got derailed.. not by the rain but by an early wake up call from the husband who forgot to put out the trash. I crawled back into bed to warm up and fell back asleep blowing right past my workout window.

McGorge Scott sent along some running links he likes:

And for folks out in his neck of the woods...

Here's a photo from China.. we went back to the sea cucumber shop and my two travelling buddies tried samples (and both insist they liked it). We were getting ready to leave and I looked up at a corkboard behind the register and spotted this:

It's a picture they took of me on my first trip there. Between the cheesy hand guesture, too-cool-for-school sunglasses, 14 pounds of credentials hanging off my neck, Blackberry out and ready for email action, and dippy grin.. I'm one Mao t-shirt away from looking like the epitome of a working tourist.

I left them an NBC Beijing 2008 pin as a guesture of goodwill (and apology-- ha!!).
