Hey, it's CAJ!

I'm just that guy whose full name is Curtis Alan Jackson. I like Star Wars over Star Trek. Love my sci-fi hard and always interested in time travel related stories (not as much alternative history). Enjoy reading about quantum physics and cosmology even if I can't understand the math. :) #FARP2020

#FARP2020 So was reading this article (https://www.runnersworld.com/runners-stories/a27546583/rw-run-streak/) about running every day from today until the Fourth of July. I think I might try it out. I missed a weight workout yesterday because lazy and now need a new goal. Random: I may need to buy more socks.

Comment

Status update: 2/2 so far but these are my normal run days. Let's see for the rest of the week. :)

End of month update: I have now run 32 days straight. While I've been trying to take it a bit easier due to the increased tromping, my standard pace (where I'm not really paying attention to it) has increased nearly a minute including a lower matching heart rate. It's like exercising makes you healthier or something!

New shoes reporting for duty! This is the first time I've actually bought a second pair of existing shoes. I now have 2 pairs of Brooks Ghost 12s along with a pair of 11s. Plenty of rotation happening. #FARP2020

Excellent! My Spouse, who is new to running has a pair of Brooks Ghost 12s that he loves.

Well, my "weekend" started today with a two hour meeting and lots of follow up work. However, this is one of those times where I'm happy to be doing it. Why? Well, yesterday about 40+ people from my company got let go as part of an ongoing reorganization. So while I may be working on my weekend, I am working. Now we just have to figure out how to change some processes and coverage to make it through the weekend and keep supporting our customers. We have a company All Hands later where details should emerge on what the company will look like in the future. It's an odd thing to be so happy to be doing work on your day off.

Oh wow!

We'd already been operating under some reduced staffing hours hence my weekend being Friday/Saturday. Hopefully, we'll get back those hours so I'm in the mix of things M-F instead. Interesting times.

oh dear. I'm glad you're still working & I hope you get some weekend tomorrow.

There's an attempt to explain some of the stock market valuations, specifically derivatives, but definitely not something I understand.
