I have to admit that getting a NIKE+ Sportsband has helped my spring running. I joined the "Around The World in 40 days Challenge" and that was it. Now I´m obsessed with logging my k´s onto my nikeplus-account.
I almost freaked out earlier when at first, the site refused to recognize today´s run. Restarting my computer solved that problem and I feel happy with being in place 151 (of almost 900 runners) when half the challenge has passed.
Eyjafjallajökull - that´s a handful to spell.
And who would even care to learn how to spell it if it wasn´t for the hidden talent of this volcano to stop half of Europe in its tracks?
Can I just ask one question? Aren´t there volcano eruptions all the time around the world?
I remember visiting Sicily a few years back when Etna had just had a huge eruption just a few days earlier. Was there any airports shut down then in southern Europe? Er, no.
Have you ever heard about airports being shut down because of volcano eruptions before?
Not that I´m volunteering to be aboard the first Boeing to defy the air travel lockdown.
21.58. Just learned that the volcano needs to be underneath a glacier, to be able to cause the havoc above. Well, you learn something new every day.
