    No, Lenin is privately owned.

I know, but...here's the source on the proceed statement.


Also interested in Cumol's thoughts. Trail running is such a different, and, in my mind, even more amazing experience than road running.

There's an association with nature that's largely lost when you're running on pavement. Trail running is taking over road running for me.

With proceeds from the sale going to a "local arts organization" (Fremont Arts Council, I'd imagine).

I'm going to be in Knoxville tomorrow, leaving Friday evening...

That's a great time, congrats! The no porta-potty thing the previous year seems like a nightmare. What's the course like? Is it along streets in downtown Madison or a bit more rural?

Those Jelly Belly "Extreme Sports Beans"...I never knew those were a thing. How do they differ from edibles like Clif Bloks?

I wasn't prepared to whine about my life for another day, dammit, Pubski!

Went to a music festival this past weekend in Missoula. It was a special experience, perfect size crowd-wise, everybody was having a good time including the bands. I kept running into interesting people and the musicians themselves since it wasn't some massive "Coachella-esque" festival. And I'm single again, so that's a thing for the better, I think.

Many of us have invested in ETH at some point over the last two to three years. insomniasexx is the developer behind myetherwallet and is very involved in the ETH community.

    His stories often deal with characters going through (trans)formative times in their lives, and contain a good amount of philosophy and metaphor.

This doesn't sound too dissimilar from Kundera, whom I love. I think I will start with Narcissus and Goldmund or Siddhartha. The reading list keeps growing...

mk am I missing something, when did this become a "discuss" button and "contribute" button?

Whoa. Welcome back, Cumol! It's good to see you here again.

There's something about being outdoors that's exceedingly human. I think that running, in particular, is one of the most human activities. Other animals sprint, dig, fight, etc., but very few are built for distances the way a person is. And yet it seems like very few people take advantage of that. The relationships question is a big one. I just saw your post and have a question for you, as it's a problem I have as well. What is it that causes you to lose interest after a few weeks?

Nope! I've never even (knowingly) heard of Hermann Hesse before. Any recommendations on a good place to start with him?

Reflecting on a lot of things. A year and a half ago I barely hiked or ran, and now that's mostly what I do in my free time. Guitar has taken a back seat, though I think a lot of that and my angst about radio are justified given my experiences in those scenes in the PNW (oh no). Whereas the running and outdoors community have been much more down to Earth and friendly. However, has this resulted in me not necessarily wanting to be in a relationship? Or more unable to be in one than in the past. For a while, yes, thought I wanted one and it would be great but now that I've been in one for a few months, that's not necessarily the case. Or maybe the bigger problem is I hadn't given enough thought as to what I want in/from a relationship.

Or is it that I have ventured so far into those communities that it has cut me off from being romantically viable/compatible with people not in those communities. Unrelated friends/people at restaurants/people at bars keep making this assumption that I'm dating person X, Y, etc. when we're out after a run or whatever.

What do I want.

See you in fifteen years or so.
