Lots of thoughts, but not enough energy for multiple posts.
We ran our second 20-miler yesterday. It was a beautiful day, out on the C & O towpath--almost a perfect day for running, cool and sunny, the leaves just starting to turn, not many people on the towpath because of the Marine Corps Marathon, which was yesterday. I felt pretty good and probably could have pushed on to finish the complete 26.2 miles. The Philadelphia Marathon is now less than three weeks away (November 20). Now: "Taper, do your magic."
Watched The Shining over the weekend. Is this the greatest horror movie of all time? (And I'm talking about the one with Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall, not the horrible television mini-series.) Also one of the most unforgettable performances in film history, by Danny Lloyd. No, seriously, Nicholson is just over the top.
If there's a Supreme Court pick today, and there is an expectation that there will be an announcement today, my money's on Judge Alito of the Third Circuit. I know that this is hardly original and has been widely rumored. But I think that the rumors have some merit. Alito would be a good pick. But really, who knows what this Administration is going to do next? Few people saw that Miers thing coming, or going, for that matter.
