i am trying to get in the habit of blogging daily

...but as you can see it is very late.  not even today anymore.  so this will be equal parts brief and pointless.

1) election.  feh.  giant map of redness.  i am not what anyone would call a rampant liberal, but it still terrifies me.  too much fervor in any direction is not a good thing.

2) i need to decide very soon if i wish to train for and run a 15k (9 mile) race on december 19.  the last few weeks have been bad with work, but before that i was running 3-4 miles, 3-4 times a week.  i'm back to running again this week and i've definitely lost the (relative) ease that comes with doing it regularly, but it's not like i've turned into a giant tub of inertia.  the question is less whether i can train to that point than whether i want to.  i find my response is lukewarm, although this is substantially influenced by the fact that all of a sudden it is winter, and i am a big wimp.  this is an annoying feature of all races - most of them are during some month that is not pleasant (that is, all the months except for september and may) and at some implausible time of the morning.  i did a lot of races last spring, though, and it didn't kill me, and i am going to have to get over my laziness pretty soon to start training for the 2011 nyc marathon. 

3) while i have been writing this, the republicans have won something like 15 house seats.
