Heya!! Its been a while - did you have a good summer? It always seems too short to me, and its longer here than it is there. Still I'm ready for a break from the garden chores. Time to start the woodstove chores instead. Life always comes down to the same basic things: eat and stay warm.

I still follow your training log, but I've noticed a dearth of interesting/humorous stories lately. I hope you haven't become as boring as me :) I especially miss the Pastry Sagas. Mmmmmustikkapiirakka!

Hi there! I try to update my trainins weekly, but usually fail miserably. :D In general the summer was great, even though most people were complaining that it was rainy and cold, but I was on holiday in August when the sun was shining and it was hot. :) Fall was great too and the winter is coming...

I'm working on my PhD now, and well, there's plenty of work. But something historic is also going to happen in the New Year - I'll be stepping on US soil for the first time in my life. I'm visiting some friends in LA and Pasadena. The plan is to stay a few nights in San Francisco too. The whole trip will take about two weeks. Í have a new passport and a platinum MasterCard so I'm ready for the trip now! ;D

Hey that's great. Pasadena is lovely, lots of flowers all year 'round. I've been there for work a couple of times. The neighborhoods around the Huntington Library are nice for running. Lots of fancy houses. I'd like to see the gardens at the Huntington sometime. If you want a nearby adventure, run or hike up to the Mt Wilson Observatory on the old toll rd from Altadena or the footpath from Sierra Madre.

San Fran is nice too. Lots of good eats. Noodles and dim sum. Last time I was there I had crepes at this place with a bunch of orienteers. Muir Woods and Mt. Tam north of the Gate for hiking and views of the Pacific.
