26.2 miles COMPLETED…

After 4 months and 600 miles of training I finally finished my first marathon. The 2004 Long Beach Marathon, I finished it in 4:26, which is a bit over 10 min/miles. It was pretty cool to run across the finish line and realize that you just ran for 4 1/2 hours without a single break.

Clip from Late Night w/ Conan O'Brien

One of the funniest clips I’ve seen on the Conan show in a long time. This is from the Sept 21, 2004 show, it follows one of the writers of the show as he gets help from the Tech Support folks…who are based in India. Windoze users will need the following DivX plugin to play in Windows Media Player. Apple users will need to get a program that can view DivX files.
