Winter Update

Busy with school and embarked on a stealth training program featuring among other things, Pilates and watching hockey games. Tour of California looked dismal, race gone awry for lack of information. Good article about women's racing in the NYT. Not to mention one on electric shifting, which I find abhorrent. Trying to grasp the economic situation, keep up with stimulus packages knowing it's a lost cause if I fall behind. There's a spectrum of e-reporting from blog to facebook to twitter, which I find both ridiculous ("drinking coffee," "sunny day today," trivial and falsely casual (but actually highly constructed and self-promoting) details for anyone out there with much time to waste) and oddly compelling.
