So I decided to bite the bullet and register for the basic repair class at the Broadway Bicycle School. The cost seems pretty reasonable for a 10-hour course, and I look forward to being able to extend my bike repair abilities beyond replacing punctured inner tubes.

My brother and I were talking yesterday about various people we had known from high school, and somehow the subject of a local New Year's tradition that I participated in for a few years came up. This was a 5 mile road race known as the Hamilton Hangover. I'd generally go run it with some teammates from cross country/track; if nothing else we'd get some fast mileage for the day and a T-shirt out of it.

It then occurred to me that due to the race's late start, around noon, it would be possible if insane to have an unforgettable New Year's by dancing DelVal Hogmanay, stretching legs and icing feet, getting a few hours of sleep, and then running the Hamilton Hangover. One would probably even have time to make it to the DelVal recovery party after the race, assuming one had any energy left and one's legs were not turned into mush.

Frankly, two or three miles of very gentle running to warm up the legs, followed by extensive stretching, might actually be quite helpful in recovering from Hogmanay.
