2008 Pasadena Marathon Course Posted

The Pasadena Marathon posted its course map today. After running the Long Beach, Big Sur and Los Angeles marathons, there is something really cool about running a course that is never more than 5 or 6 miles away from my house.


Volunteer Pumpkin

I’m a composting geek. We compost all of our non-meat table scraps, coffee grounds, and some yard waste and then dig it into our garden soil each year as a natural fertilizer. It’s always fun to see what “volunteers” pop up from that compost. After Halloween we composted our jack-o-lanterns, and this year our favorite volunteer is a pumpkin vine, complete with one little pumpkin.

I wish coffee plants would volunteer. Hmmm.
