I Bought an RV!

A short while I ago, as an aside, I mentioned that I might be buying an RV to live in. It seemed like a good idea, so every day I checked ebay to see what sorts of deals were to be had. I wasn't ready to buy, but I figured it would be good to know what's available for when the condo sold.

I sat in my living room chatting with some friends on AIM when one of them brought up the RV idea. While I explained it to them I opened up ebay. By default it shows the most recently listed RVs on top. The very top one was an R-Vision Trail Lite, one of the few models I'd really liked. I glanced over at the price and it was $14,000, less than half of what they usually go for. There must be something wrong with it.

I opened the listing and read through the description. The front "shotgun" seat was missing. No big deal. They'd backed into something and the fiberglass around the tail light was cracked. No big deal. The couch wasn't the one specifically made for the RV. No big deal.

End of Track Season

On Imported Blog

I had an post for my end of cross country season, so I thought I should probably have one for track as well.

I honestly could have not asked for a better season. I didn't even do well - I'm not close to being one of the elite private school runners in the city. I'm hoping I'll be next year. I say this season was so good because of my improvement. Simply from cross country season I shaved off over 25 seconds off my mile time. That's huge for half a year, especially when it's going from a sub 5:30 to a sub 5:00 mile. Again, that's not even close for being one of the top private school runners, but it's amazing when I compare to it where I was.

I must be realistic. I do wish I was a sub 4:40 miler, but that is almost impossible from where I was only a few months ago. The improvement I made in the little time I had was phenomenal and I'm proud of it. My 1600m pace for my 3200m personal best was faster than my fastest mile during cross country.

I can't wait till next year, though. Cross Country and Track. I only have one year left. I'll run in college, but I won't be running for the NCAA. I want to make a name for myself, though, next year. I want to continue the improvement I've made in the past year and a half and go all out next year. I want to be an elite private school runner in the city, maybe even in the state. It's going to be hard, and the biggest barrier is going to be time. I may just not have enough time to shave off that many seconds.
