Hola! I am currently sitting in a little internet cafe here in the Land of Enchantment, reading a few blogs and answering 20 questions from Andrew. Here are a few of his
- how to work on a consistent routine to get psyched up for running
- picking music to run with (when is it good / when is it bad)
- how much do levels of testosterone and estrogen matter if you are a runner
- how much does stride, strike rate, and foot plant matter to speed, endurance, and energy conservation
- how much does a coach help in improving your running?
- how can you judge what is achievable?
- are there test runs you can do to tell you what level of fitness you are at and how much work you need to do to get where you want to go
- what can we expect are the fitness losses as we age

After a little jaunt along the Rio, the boys and I made our way the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History (aka: museum for total science nerds - right up my alley!!). Actually, the museum wasn't too bad - for about the first 20 minutes, and I kinda got into the Marie Curie (10 bonus points for the first one who can tell me why she's famous!! THINK back to elementary school science class....I know this was a long time for many *ahem* aside from me), but after that I about fell asleep during the exhibit. Until .... I spotted this puppy....
|B52 - it's humongous. Those are my boys standing there|
Today we made our way for a little hike and exploring the Cinder Cone volcanic remnants, east of the city of Albuquerque. We've always had a great time over here (remember, science geek girl here) and despite being blown all over the place due to high winds,we still had fun.
