San Gorgonio Wilderness

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Health         ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

I never thought I would find anything likeable about Los Angeles, until last week when I discovered the San Gorgonio Wilderness. Ok, this is really about an hour drive outside Los Angeles, but hard to believe an area so beautiful is near the smog city. The San Gorgonio Wilderness is situated in the San Bernardino — Continue reading ยป

Half Marathon 2008

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Health,Running-hiking         ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

Ran the ยฝ marathon today and as expected my performance was dismal. I ran the course in 2:14:58, at the pace of 10:18/mile. Last year I finished the race in 2:02:32 and the year prior to that my time was 1:55:52, and the one before that at 1:54:05. Beginning to see a pattern here. But — Continue reading ยป

Herniated Disc and Half Marathon

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Health,Running-hiking     #     ๐Ÿ—จ 2 Comments

One of my biggest anguishes I've had about getting hit with a herniated disc has been my inability to participate in my town's annual half marathon. But as I recovered from this affliction and started to run again I began to think that perhaps my fears on that front were premature and I could at — Continue reading ยป

Herniated Disc, Six Months Later

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Health,Running-hiking     #     ๐Ÿ—จ 5 Comments

It's been nearly 6 months since I was diagnosed with a herniated disc. During that time I have had to make some lifestyle changes, but looking back, the adjustments haven't been as drastic as I might have feared initially. Or perhaps I am now just used to dealing with the condition. When I was in — Continue reading ยป

Herniated Disc, on Steroid

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Health,Running-hiking     #     ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

I saw my doctor today and the diagnosis was as I had expected. I indeed have a herniated disc. Nicely ruptured, spilling material into the spinal canal, putting pressure on the nerve. At least I have confirmed results on the source of the pain. For now I'm on steroidal medication, Prednisone, 4 times a day. — Continue reading ยป

MRI, Back Pain, Herniated Disc, and Running

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Health,Running-hiking     #     ๐Ÿ—จ 10 Comments

If you are an avid runner, you know that occasional pain is just a part of the activity. It comes in different intensities and it affects different parts of the body. Sometimes it's in the knee, other times it's in the foot, sometimes it's from a strained muscle, and other times it's in a joint. — Continue reading ยป

Face Cream Gimmick

Microsoft's $45 billion offer to buy Yahoo has certainly intensified the online advertising scrutiny. No doubt the entire advertising industry is going through turbulent times. At $20 billion per year, online advertising is still a small fraction of the entire advertising market, but that figure is estimated to rise sharply as more people turn to — Continue reading ยป

Back! to Jogging

Those who know me (there aren't too many) know that running is an addiction of mine. But just like any addiction there comes a time when a man must realize when to quit. In the immortal words of Dirty Harry, "A man's got to know his limitations." That limitation hit me in the back with — Continue reading ยป
