My “weekly” check-in of where I’m at.
Body and Mind
The good news is that (a) I’ve figured out how to reliably get eight hours of sleep, and (b) I’m about 10x better at everything when I do so. The not so good news is that after six weeks running 12-15 miles a week, I developed a slight bit of extensor tendonitis (aka “turf toe”) in my right foot. I’ve been resting it and doing some stretches to help prevent a recurrence, so I’m not feeling too bad about it
Friends and Family
Two good friends of ours are getting married today, and we were happy to wish them well at a dinner in their honor last night.
Last weekend’s Dying Kingdoms event was fantastic; I can hardly wait for the climax of the story arc at the end of this year. I also finished off two knitting projects and started on something brand new. Instant Karma is also rehearsing again after our September hiatus, and I’m looking forward to our two November shows.
The big highlight this week seeing Peter Gabriel in concert at the Santa Barbara Bowl — including the So album in its entirety. If you have a chance to catch this tour, do so.

Tonight, meeting up with DK folks to eat German food and debrief last weekend’s game. Then it’s putting the house back in order after a weekend away. If I’m lucky, I’ll get a short recovery run in.
