  1. a jpg. This is meditation. #FBF to last Saturday, in the zone, racing the Mt. Tam Trail Run half marathon with singular focus. 📷 ChasquiRunner.

    Awake the night before @TheNorthFace #ECSCA, thinking back to last Saturday’s challenges and triumphs, this morning’s @Nov_Project_SF hosted Battery Spencer workout for so many incredible humans visiting from near & far, and November Project friends both on their way and watching from afar.

  7. a jpg. Finished Mt. Tam Trail Run half in 3:32:20. No music, just breathing, footsteps, wind, and the sounds of the forest and other runners. Barely stopped, but there was something about the sun shining through the misty forest that made me pause here to capture it.

    Three hours of focusing on my breath, footsteps, hydration, and energy. Meditative, smooth at times, slippery with tricky roots at others, and an uphill struggle before the last peak up to a total of over 3200 feet of vertical climbing.

    Finally about a half hour of using gravity, step-by-step at first, then continuously flowing as fast as I could down through the finish.

    10th half marathon, and first trail half race. Thanks Michele for the encouragement to join, and fellow #NPSF racers, cheergang, and volunteers @insidetrail!

    I.e. #AMP is #openwashing not #openweb, similar to #schema before it.

    It has appearances or aspects of being open (e.g. with defensive statements like "non-google committers"), but in practice is proprietarily controlled/governed (free community labor for corporate leaders), and designed (perhaps unintentionally) to bias an otherwise seemingly open ecosystem towards a single company or small anti-competitive oligopoly in practice.

    Nevermind the #doublespeak of caching vs hosting, or placement within "search results" implying part of a page vs the more practically meaningful "SERP" (search engine results *page*) placement, regardless of styling as a horizontal carousel or vertical list.

    I still think an actually open alternative could be beneficial.

  14. Four years ago: my first @Nov_Project_SF. #NPversary
    This past year: ran my first marathon & led #NP_Yoga

    #NovemberProject is an amazing community.

    Grateful to be a part of it, across so many cities, and especially grateful for all the support which helped me breakthrough limitations I had previously accepted, and achieve goals I had thought were impossible or had never even considered.

    Let’s see what I can do in year 5.
