Today was the first day of classes at EWU. The commute was sound. I'm really trying to keep my clothes changes down to a minimum. I change my shirt so I don't totally rot out my nice shirts, but otherwise, I stay in my shoes (which are normal looking SPDs) and I can ride in the pants I wear at work/school, which are either Carhartts (with monster thighs) or nerdy stretchy technical, but nice-looking trousers.
I'm rocking the tie this year too. After working in software for about 15 years, where I pretty much only wore shorts and a tshirt, last year was a hard transition to find pants/nice shirts that worked for actually moving around in. Ugh. But I got it dialed last year and now it's tie time, which was fun. Liza found some pretty rad ties at garage sales and thrift stores. My plan is to make a point of clashing (especially around patterns) -- since I think that a good clash makes for an interesting visual story. Maybe I'll start a fashion blog too...

I went to campus on Monday to prep and rode the v2 Elephant -- made my best time yet: 1:05 from door-to-door. I took a bunch of trails today, so I was more in the 1:20 range, but I think I'll try to break the 1 hour barrier on Friday.
Meanwhile, on the running front... it's hard to take pics with a phone while running. But more importantly, I'm digging it (running, not attempting photos) more and more. I'm running three times a week for about 40 minutes each run.
