• Race Recap: Capital ‘Cross Classic

    Final race of the season, looking to finally break the top 10. Final race of the season, and I think I’ve figured this sport out. In previous races, I’d gone out casually and picked people off over the course of the event, much like you do in running. It’s never worked too poorly, but also […]

    Twelfth (that’s a really weird word to type)! I can’t seem to escape it. Two 12s in a row preceded by a 13. My points dropped from 395 last race to 393 this one so I suppose I did do about .5% better. I totally wasn’t into this race. I signed up without looking where Taneytown […]

  • iPad mini – Lacking resolution

    Today, I buck trends. Everyone who seems to have their hands on an iPad mini loves it. I don’t, and it all boils down to one thing, the screen. In 2010, Apple came out with what they call the Retina display. The gist of it is a display that has such a high-resolution that the […]
