You Know Where To Find Me

Software development, running, music & beer

shorter days, longer nights


Summer is quickly coming to an end, so I’m trying to make the most of what is left. Eased up on the running a bit this week, replacing my early week 5 miler with a 15 mile bike ride on Monday. I then did 8 miles on Wednesday, and am resting up for my big 20 miler tomorrow. Should be a challenge, and my last major hurdle before the marathon in 3 weeks.

Kristy & I finally made it down to the Great Lakes Science Center in downtown Cleveland on Thursday evening to check out the Body Worlds 2 exhibit. It’s very difficult to describe, but it’s this huge exhibit that features a bunch of real human bodies, stripped of their skin and preserved via plastination, in various poses that show the muscles, bones and internal organs in various forms. It is truly an amazing exhibit that is unlike anything you will see anywhere else. In addition to the entire bodies on exhibit, there are also a bunch of individual organs and various cross-sections that show normal and diseased specimens. Pictures describe it much better than I can, so go here and check out the image gallery to see a very brief sampling of what is included. If you are in Cleveland, you better hurry because the exhibit is only around through next Sunday, Sept 18th.

After the Science Center, we grabbed a late dinner in Ohio City at the Great Lakes Brewing Company. Despite not being much of a meat eater anymore, it wasn’t until that night that I tried my first non-meat burger, their vegan Taro Burger. It was delicious, though not quite as big as I would have hoped. So it might be time for me to start trying veggie burgers at other joints. I’m not ready to give up meat, especially some good BBQ, but I’ve been shying away from beef for quite a while.

Tonight I’m going to check out the Cleveland Indians as they go for their 6th straight win and to keep control of the wild card race. As exciting as the whole baseball playoff race has been over the past month, I don’t know if I can keep up with 3 more weeks of this. It’s like one loss can decide your season these days. I wish they had a nice comfy lead and could just cruise into the playoffs. Now it’s like a month-long playoff.
