Vancouver Winter Olympics - Bobsled

current song: Linger by The Cranberries

single released in 1993. UK #1 17 cycles ago... No Limit by 2 Unlimited.

American 4-man team... piloted by buffin top Steven Holcomb... won the gold medal. 1st US gold after 62 cycles. German GDR blue colored bobsled driven by Andre Lange won silver. edged Canada by 0.01 second. surprised Canada won bronze and not the gold on its home track.

what happened to the Germans? hmmm... perhaps since there's no East and West German rivalry to top each other... Germany's development in the sliding events stalled. read about how at one Olympics... while other countries still used wooden sleds... GDR used plastic... won lots of medals... shocked the world. when other countries started to use plastic... the GDR not only further improved their sleds... but also actually had athletes compete... rather than muffin/buffin tops... for faster start times and speed. West Germans also tried to improve helmet designs for better aerodynamics.

I have to mention again that I completed my Uwe Dassler Olympics challenge to swim 1.50 miles by the end of the games. took me 56 minutes... but I did it... churned in the water like a mutha. hmmm... perhaps I should continue to swim that distance on Fridays... swim that distance faster... lower my times.

as of this post... USA leads w/ 36 medals. USA! USA! USA!

Vancouver Winter Olympics - Short Track

current song: Won't Go Quietly by Example

watched couple finals. in women's 1,000 meters... USA athlete won silver.

in men's 5,000 meter relay USA won bronze. 5 teams... 20 skaters. wild. French team... boooo! hisss!... knocked out of race. did they still race? didn't see them on the floor. what are the rules? if one team lapped... does that team leave? make room for remaining teams? 45 laps. lots of action. pretty wild.

as of this post... according to NBC's Olympics site... 4 out of 8 events completed. Korea won 2 golds and 8 overall medals in the sport. what's up w/ the dark GDR blue colored outfits? how is it the Koreans won lots of medals? former GDR coaches now in South Korea? USA has 6 total medals in the sport. thank you Colbert Nation. love capitalism.

completed Uwe Dassler swimming challenge this afternoon. swam 1.50 miles. freestyled for a little under 1 hour. crazy.

in men's 4-man bobsled... USA team leads after 2 runs. German team in 3rd. German women failed to win a medal in bobsled for the 1st time in a million cycles. shocked. spectacular crashes.

as of this post... USA leads w/ 34 overall medals. most likely will beat German record medal haul. USA! USA! USA!

Humpback Whale Sighting

current song: Break Your Heart by Taio Cruz

1st humpback whale sighting this season. frellin' awesome. checked blog... last sighting on 3.12.2009.

friend Aria... sprint biathlete in the making... and I walked around Magic Island yesterday afternoon. as we made our way to the wall... lots of people waiting for the sun to set. huge spout seen. huge. then 2nd spout. she yelled: oh my gawd! people gave her glares. did no one else see the huge spouts?

we stared... waited... and watched. more spouts. finally! a surface sighting. then another. not 1 whale... but 2. perhaps mamma and her calf. perhaps 2 males fighting for a hot mamma. more spouts and more surfacings. awesome.

last season... spotted whales 3 separate solar days. I assume we have until the 12th of this cycle to see more spouts and surface sightings. hopin' to see a breach.

Lost - Lighthouse

current song: Fantaisie-Impromptu by Chopin

Jack has a son David? Ben's a teacher? if plane landed safely... wouldn't Ben be on the island w/ the Others? does this mean 2004 is an alternate universe? I assume so. I'm Lost. boooo! hisss!

David's mother's place looks familiar. the homes look like an area across Kahala Mall. the outside of the building where David played his piano piece looks like the state library. if Jack has a son... and 2004 is an alternate universe, then who's David's mamma? would be funny if mamma = red head fluent Korean speaking hottie.

love the new and improved kick ass, bad ass Claire. she kills an Other Others by swinging an axe into his gut. rewind. she told Jin that she would kill Kate if she found out Kate raised Aaron. I expect a bitch fight in an upcoming ep.

in my last post I assumed Jin to be dead and is a host. in this ep... Claire calls the bad ass Locke her friend. now I assume Jin's still a candidate and Sun's dead and is a host. Sun has to be a host. she must be keeping a watchful eye of what Ilana's up to. Sun must be the bad ass that's arriving at the temple.

now... who's coming to the island? someone brand new... or someone familiar? Penelope? isn't she on FlashForward? then again... FlashForward on break. she could be here in the islands.

single re-released in 1987. UK #1 23 cycles ago... I Knew You Were Waiting by Aretha Franklin & George Michael.

at the end of the women's 2nd run... Canada 1st, USA 2nd, Deutschland 3rd. Canadians should be 1st considering they must have trained on this track over and over and over. surprised only 1 German team in the top 3. shocked to see German bobsled not colored GDR blue. will the Canadians win a medal? will the Germans win gold w/out a GDR blue bobsled?

for my Uwe Dassler swimming challenge... I swam 1.25 miles. beat. ultimate challenge goal of swimming 1.50 miles will be attempted and realized on Friday. I hope to complete my swam in less than an hour. I will earn 3 dranks.

will the US still be on top the medal standings on Friday? as of this post... US leads w/ 7 gold and 26 overall medals. USA! USA! USA!

coolest recap = Renee goin' pyscho... stabbin' Vlad over and over and over. rewind.

coolest scene = Jack tryin' to prevent Renee from becoming scapegoat for CTU frell up. Jack takes down dude guarding room where Renee being tricked by barbaric lawyer into confessing to killing Vlad. w/ guard knocked out... Jack uses guard's palm print to open door.

Jack: Renee... don't say anything. Renee: it's too late. Jack rushes barbaric lawyer... pushing her back against the wall w/ his forearm against her throat. she's freakin' out. Jack: how dare you... after all she's sacrificed... you have no decency.

when they open door... guard points gun at Jack... tells him to stand down. Jack: lower your weapon son... you don't wanna get hurt. as they leave Jack gets tasered from behind. rewind entire scene.

coolest extra = guard who Jack knocked out to use palm print to open door.

coolest killing = Ortiz shooting Kevin's friend.

Walsh tells Ortiz that she's a felon. how can a felon work for CTU? gimme a break. then again... how can CTU hire barbaric Hastings? Hastings = anti-Buchanan.

current song: How Low by Ludacris on power 104.3 FM

Germans w/ their GDR blue bobsleds won gold and silver in the 2 man event. Andre Lange... from eastern Deutschland... piloted his vehicle for his 4th gold medal. Germans have so far won 9 medals in the sliding events. any commercial applications from technology put into these Teutonic vehicles?

watched biathlon in night recap w/ Mary Carillo. she's in love w/ studio moose... embracin' and kissin' him for long time. in 12.5 km mass start event... German hottie Magdalena Neuner won the gold w/ teammate winning bronze. chicks w/ guns = hot. why are there no other types of events like this? imagine hotties in bikinis swimming... then racing on to beach to shoot at targets. mmmmm.

as of this post USA still leads all countries w/ 7 gold and 24 overall medals. USA! USA! USA!

Amazing Race 16 - Puerto Varas, Chile


alliance formed between Joe & Heidi and lesbians Carol & Brandy. at bus terminal Joe & Heidi saved spot in ticket line for the lesbians. pissed off some other teams. alliance only 2 teams to get seats on 1st bus that would take teams directly from Valparaíso to Puerto Varas. pic from wikipedia.org. alliance smug. loathe them.

majority of teams decided to take a direct route. cowboy bros and couple other teams decided to take 2 bus trips. smart move for they left bus terminal ahead of alliance. at transfer station cowboys found out that that the 2 other teams at the station w/ them had to be at another terminal. did they tell them? frell no. the other 2 teams had less than 10 minutes to go to the other terminal before their bus left. did they make it in time? nope. mad dash back to original terminal... but that bus... w/ cowboys on board... already left. cowboys pleased. Jet & Cord kept their lead throughout leg... arrived 1st at pit stop... won sailboats. they look excited. I know they would have rather won a trip.

for this leg's detour... Llama Adoration or Condor Consternation. in llama adoration... teams had to go to a farm, dress a llama for a festival by placing a prince michael 2 (blanket) on its back and tie a scarf around its neck. llama kicked Joe in the leg. he deserved it.

condor consternation = funny. teams traveled to a beach where they had to put on boots that resemble the birds' talons and use a glider the looked a like condor... run and fly off a ramp into the water to get the next clue. teams would run... flap their wings. did teams who did this detour actually fly? nope. basically they jumped into the water looking like a condor. splat. rewind.

for this leg's roadblock... one team member had to collect ingredients for a traditional German cake. ingredients = butter, eggs, flour, milk from a cow, and sugar. poor granny. her team 2nd to last... ahead of the detectives. granny so close to getting all the milk needed... but cow kicked her in the head. she had to start all over again. granny and granddaughter eliminated.

milking cow = gross. cows urinated and excremented. gay Jordon: now Bessie... if you did that while I'm milkin' you... we wouldn't be friends. he and Dan come in 8th. father and daughter vandals Steve & Allie hardly featured in this hour. are they a sleeper team?

conservative in me used to seeing GDR athletes dominate speed skating w/ their powerful thighs. now I enjoy watching short track.

women's 1,500 m = wild. watched heats and final. petite Koreans = amazing. skaters fighting for lead position = awesome... whether cutting ahead from the inside or powering their way to the front from the outside. several crashes in the heats. rewind. 8 women in the final. what the frell? Chinese athlete won the gold. South Koreans silver and bronze.

caught 1st run of 2 man bobsled. after 2 runs... German teams in 1st and 2nd.

hottie Lindsey Vonn won a bronze medal. when I 1st saw her on Conan... I thought she was a model. didn't realize that she's a kick ass skier. mmmmm.

as of this post... USA leads medals count w/ 6 gold and 23 total medals. USA! USA! USA!

Vancouver Winter Olympics - Skeleton

current song: It's My Life / Confessions, Pt II by Glee Cast

1st time watching this event. damn. skeleton = head first luge. damn. looks dangerous. Germany won its 1st 2 Olympic medals ever in the sport w/ the women taking silver and bronze medals.

as of this post... USA on top w/ 6 gold and 20 overall medals. USA! USA! USA!

impressed and not impressed w/ US medal count. a lot of medals came from events where judges score events. reminds me of when Soviets dominated Olympics... thanks to Warsaw pact judges who would give high scores to their Soviet masters... low scores for everyone else.

I caught a women's snowboarding event where Australian competitor fell on her ass... and yet she scored a 4.9. Americans dominate snowboarding. if competitor American would judges have bias and give American a 9.4? who knows? depends on judges feelings. in my mind Australian didn't complete the event. so what if she did tricks? she fell on her ass. she should get a 0. it's like giving a Chinese diver points for doing a belly flop.

at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics... 46 gold and 138 overall medals to compete for. if GDR existed today... using percentages... perhaps GDR today would win 17 gold and 47 overall medals... out of 88 gold and 264 medals up for grabs.

as far as my Uwe Dassler challenge... this afternoon I swam 1.00 mile. will attempt to swim 1.25 miles on Tuesday... and finally 1.50 miles next week Friday.

single released in 1991. UK #1 19 cycles ago... Do The Bartman by The Simpsons.

friend Althea in town for her younger bro's wedding. poor girl didn't enjoy herself at beach this afternoon. met some friends at Gyotaku.

we all ordered the early bird special. for $10.95... meal comes w/ miso soup, 3 pieces of shrimp tempura, vegetable tempura (string beans, eggplant, potato), 6 pieces of California roll, and a choice of 1 of 9 items. I picked ahi poke while Althea chose chicken karaage. we shared. awwww.

amount of food just right for one watching weight. if I hadn't had a late lunch... chicken katsu w/ mac salad and rice from L&L... I could have eaten 2 of these early bird specials. I would've ordered another one w/ sashimi.

Althea eats like a European... slow and leisurely. plan to go to the beach tomorrow afternoon and go to Ocean 808 afterwards for happy hour. she's like: I gotta get my black & blue ahi. I have to eat slower... match her pace. last time I went to that place... 1 cycle ago... last time she visited the islands.

Lost - The Substitute

current song: Enjoy The Silence by Depeche Mode on star 101.9 fm

recognized no familiar places.

Locke = man in black = smoke monster. I assume Sayid = Jacob = ?. fair to assume Jacob can transform into something else. but what? hmmm... thinking elements... air, earth, fire, water.

man in black claims Locke. prefer to use word host. Locke hosts man in black. again... I assume Sayid hosts Jacob. is there a 2nd Sayid?

Jacob had thang for numbers. 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, and 42 = Locke, Reyes, Ford, Jarrah, Shephard and Kwon, respectively. since there's only 1 Kwon... I assume one of the Kwons is dead and is a host. I assume Jin hosts Jack's dad. then again Jin's surprised to see Claire in the jungle. hmmm... perhaps surprised to see that his daughter is dead and that she's a host too.

watched the men's 500 meters. South Korean won his country's 1st gold medal outside short track. Asian countries went 1-2-3... w/ Japan silver and South Korea bronze. I wonder if West shut out of medals in this event for the 1st time ever.

coolest scene = Jack pretends to be passed out from being shocked by Russian hostile... as hostile approaches to revive him... Jack uses his powerful speed skater thighs to somehow shock the Russian hostile. rewind.

coolest killing scene = Jack frees himself... fights w/ his Russian torturer... twists and breaks his limbs.

coolest extras = the 2 dead guys in container that no longer has the uranium.

Walsh's storyline = lame. earlier in hour CTU lost Jack... hostiles moved him via sewers. Renee wonders w/ all of CTU's resources... why can't they locate Jack? as I've written in past posts... how is it that w/ all of CTU's resources... how can Walsh's past escape background checks? lame.

Joe Moore: ooooo... how 'bout that Jack?... he has a stab wound... was shocked and tortured... killed some bad guys... and yet he still looks fresh as if he's about to have tea w/ the Queen.

watched the 2nd to last pairing between Deutshland's Beckert and Canada's Groves. their powerful quads as big as my bod. damn. German skater behind Canadian in the last lap. she powered her way to a silver medal. awesome.

East German sports machine still making news. Claudia Pechstein not allowed to compete. GDR athletes have never tested positive. GDR speed skating peaked in the Calgary Olympics w/ 13 medals. still rank in the top 10 all time medals for the sport. awesome.

missed the final 2 runs for the men's luge. German athletes won gold and silver.

gotta love sibling teams. in this Race the bro teams Jet & Cord and Dan & Jordan. hope both make it to the final 3. Jordan = funny. he recognizes Caite from a miss teen USA pageant You Tube video. Dan asks Jordan to imitate her. Jordan: US Americans and such... unable to read maps and such... South Africa and such... Iraq and such.

love the father & daughter vandals Steve & Allie. in one of the tasks... teams had to pick up painting supplies... paint cans, brushes, and a ladder... find a group of house painters next to the house that match the paint color the teams chose. by chance they spotted painters inside a home... unfinished red painted walls matched their cans. they finish painting the walls. local workers unsure what just happened. ooops. hope they join the bro teams in the final 3.

Vancouver Winter Olympics - Luge

current song: Telephone by Lady Gaga

managed to watch the 2nd run. heading into tomorrow's finals... German's 1-2, 3rd German in 5th and top American in 7th. watched Swiss luger lose control... then regain control of his German sled... crossed finish line safely.

what's so special about the German sleds? any commercial applications? how is it that Germans dominate this event? luge an Olympic sport since 1964. for the women... Germans have swept the medals in 6 out of the 12 games. including Austria... German speaking women have swept the medals in 8 out of the 12 games.

when will China start to win medals in luge? how is it that China is a curling power?

as of this entry... USA leads the overall medals w/ 4. USA! USA! USA!

Vancouver Winter Olympics - Opening Ceremony

current song: Hollywood by Marina & The Diamonds

recorded and fast forwarded the opening ceremony. so so. nothing like the shock and awe of the Beijing games.

Georgian luger died earlier in the solar day during test run. luge begins tomorrow. the GDR still tops the all time luge medals count w/ 29 medals. the GDR only participated in 6 winter games... last in Calgary... 22 cycles ago. overall the GDR still ranks in the top 10 in the all time winter medal standings. amazing.

the GDR sports machine fascinates me to this solar day. no GDR athlete has ever tested positive. GDR scientists always several goose-steps ahead. different now. I remember reading an article that mentioned urine/blood samples stored for cycles. today's clean athletes may actually be cheaters when today's testing methods replaced by future testing techniques. if the GDR sports machine existed today... what would its scientists have done to make sure its athletes will be clean from unknown future testing methods? fascinating.

in memory of the GDR's athletic prowess... I decided to do a 1.50 miles swimming challenge. the GDR won lots of swimming medals too. hmmm... perhaps I should call it the Uwe Dassler challenge. Uwe Dassler one of the few male GDR swimmers to win gold. this afternoon I swam 0.75 mile.

oh... problems w/ lighting the cauldron. painful to watch.

current song: One Life Stand by Hot Chip

coolest scene = Renee goin' psycho. she stabs Vladimir over and over and over. Jack stops her. she stabs Jack. rewind.

coolest killing = Jack killing one of Vlad's comrades by taking out knife from his gut and throwing it right into hostile's Adam's apple. rewind. Renee stabbing Vlad in his eye not seen. that would have been the coolest killing of the hour... but perhaps too graphic for network TV.

no cool extra who stood out. as I've written many times... I would love to be killed on the show.

KHON news anchor Joe Moore has same thoughts and feelings as I do. Walsh's storyline doesn't make sense. am I watching Lost? how can CTU not know about her background? I still believe that Kevin is Walsh's older bro. weak. lame.

after 31 consecutive solar days of exercise... a solar day of much needed rest. chillaxin' at an empty beach would have been nice this Super Bowl afternoon. jellyfish invasion frelled up that plan.

Spartakiad 8 - London (7/301)
  • 20 lbs weight gain: -1 = 21 ... .06/.06
  • 46 biathlons: 1 = 45 ... 1 every 6.69/6.68 solar days
  • 46 triathlons: 0 = 46 ... 1 every 6.69/6.54 solar days
  • 46 quadrathlons: 4 = 42 ... 1 every 6.69/7.16 solar days
  • 4,620 pull ups: 136 = 4,484 ... 15.00/14.89
1st sprint triathlon will be attempted when jellyfish invasion over. perhaps on Tuesday. if not, then definitely on Wednesday. quadrathlons ahead of schedule thanks to final push to realize quadrathlon challenge for Spartakiad 7.

NYC to London = 3,466 miles
  • bike = 51.12 ... 47.32%
  • row = 8.33 ... 7.71%
  • run = 15.60 ... 14.44%

  • volleyball = 0 ... 0%
  • walk = 29.85 ... 27.63%
3.77 miles. 3,357.98 miles to reach London by 12.05.10. I will win the Mega Millions. I will win currency to actually travel to London one solar day.

Spartakiad 7 - New York

  • 10 quadrathlons: 10 = 0 ... REALIZED
  • 15 yoga/pilates sessions: 0 = 15
  • 20 lbs weight gain: -1 = 21
  • 1,065 pull ups: 916 = 149
sprint biathlons = pieces of cake. disappointed w/ not even attempting to attend 1 single yoga or pilates class at the gym. disappointed w/ losing 1 lb. poor me. how the frell can I gain weight w/ all the -athlons I do? pull ups challenge close to realization. damn.

Chicago to NYC = 715 miles
  • bike = 316.44 ... 38.26%
  • row = 22.46 ... 2.71%
  • run = 122.60 ... 14.82%
  • swim = 28.57 ... 3.45%
  • volleyball = 21.62 ... 2.61%
  • walk = 315.36 ... 38.13%
827.05 miles in 71 solar days. surprised w/ the walking mileage. I wonder what the actual number would have been if I had a pedometer.

if I decide to do a 1.5 miles swimming challenge during the Vancouver Winter Olympics... the percentage of the overall mileage should increase for Spartakiad 8.

Super Bowl 44 - New Orleans Saints

current song: Sweet Harmony by Danny Byrd

jellyfish invades
sparse human activity
ocean spread open

would have been an ideal afternoon to chillax at the beach. would've had the whole place to myself. damn you jellyfish.

boring 1st half. Pac-10 aerial offensive explosion in 2nd. still can't match the wild card game between AZ and Green Bay... in my opinion... the game of the season.

congratulations to New Orleans. moved by shots of Brees w/ his kid at end.

fav commercial = Snickers w/ Betty White tackled into mud.

MPSF Volleyball: #4 UCLA 3 - #6 Hawaii 1

current song: Riverside by Sidney Samson

Mayor Frank Fasi
transformed Capital City
great visionary

matches seem long w/ sets going to 30 points. sloppy service from both teams... w/ UCLA's 27 and Hawaii's 24 errors.

don't know what the frell happened in the 3rd set. UH led 15-11 before TV timeout. set slipped away. UH seemed out of it in 4th and final set. disappointing home loss.

hopefully UH will win the rematch. debating whether or not to attend match. 29 consecutive solar days of exercise. I should rest. give bod a break. then again weather chilly. beach should be empty.

yesterday... #2 USC lost in 5 sets at #1 Cal State Northridge and #5 Stanford won its match against cellar dweller Pacific.

Lost - LA X

current song: Poker Face by Lady Gaga on da bomb 102.7 fm

single released in 2008. kick glutes UK #1 2 cycles ago... Now You're Gone by Basshunter.

preview of local news during commercials. interview w/ Lost writers. one of the writers said that they've done flashbacks and flashforwards... now they're gonna do something new w/ the show... flashsideways. gimme a frellin' break.

as of this writing... this show = stupid. still watchin' show because 1) I wanna see familiar places in my home state... and 2) I already watched 5 seasons.

parts of premiere actually filmed at Honolulu International Airport. this morning in the Dubai of the Pacific... spotted film crew. unsure if Lost or local commercial filmed in one of the towers in downtown.

nuclear explosion. 2 alternate realities. in 2004... get to see most of original cast members. Michael and his son Walt nowhere to be seen. what about the tailies? gimme a break.

why is Desmond on the flight?

Ben stabbed Jacob. is this the only way the smoke monster Locke can be killed as well?

what's up w/ the people at the temple? gonna call them the Other Others. the Others = modern. the Other Others live primitively in comparison. and why the Japanese leader? why not Korean?

gimme a frellin' break.

I assume Jacob took over Sayid's body. gimme a break. I assume Jacob's done this in the past. he must've had a Russian and a Korean host. that's how he can speak those languages fluently. hmmm... perhaps Korean speaking redhead had Korean host in her past.

gimme a frellin' break.

still don't understand the storyline for Walsh. again... how can CTU not know about her history? gimme a frellin' break. I still assume Kevin's her older bro. Walsh can't break away from the older bro/younger sister dynamic.

how's Renee lookin' all wet n sexy?

several killings. Russian hostile shot doctor treating Sergei's enriched uranium exposed youngest son. that caught me off guard. Ortiz killing Vlad's men when they were about to kill Jack predictable. Sergei shooting his youngest son predictable. moving scene. rewind.

coolest extras = nurse and security guard dead on floor. how much did they get paid? I will win the Mega Millions. I will win currency.

coolest dialogue = Russian hostile and Jack speaking Deutsch. Russian: let's speak in English... German is dirty. Jack: you're dirty people.

hottest Chloe moment = when she tells Arlo to look at her ass when she walks away. camera close up to her glutes. she should be in a towel all wet n sexy.

Battle Of The Bulge: Coke 81 - Cardio 0

current song: Strobe by deadmau5

earned 21 dranks in January. great start to new cycle.

-athlon running path = 3.20 miles. in sprint -athlons only need to go 3.10 miles. gonna keep numbers consistent. if I walk at least 3.10 miles for the solar day... I will earn a drank. if I decide to go walking around Magic Island... I need to go at least 3.10 miles to earn a drank. when I play vball... if I move around at least 3.10 miles... I will earn a drank. I will win the Mega Millions. I will win currency to purchase Sportline pedometer.

Coke problem. 12 fl oz can = 140 calories. if I swim or run at least 14 minutes I will earn a drank. on cardio machines at gym I need to burn at least 140 calories to earn a drank.

Spartakiad 8 - London

current song: Starz In Their Eyes by Just Jack

looked online for distance between New York City and London. took several numbers. average distance = 3,466 miles. averaged 11.23 miles per solar day from Chicago to NYC. if I use this number... I will reach London in 308 solar days.

Spartakiad 8 begins 02.01.10... ends 12.05.10.

Spartakiad 8 - London (0/308)
  • 20 lbs weight gain
  • 46 biathlons

  • 4,620 pull ups
biathlon = 0.50 mile swim + 3.10 miles run/walk
triathlon = biathlon + 12.50 miles bike
quadrathlon = triathlon + 2.03 miles row

Spartakiad 7 ends 02.07.10. quadrathlons and pull ups challenges still can be realized. I should have a good start in these challenges for Spartakiad 8.

I will win the Mega Millions. I will win currency to purchase Sportline pedometer. until I do buy one... 3.77 miles average estimated daily walking distance calculated from Spartakiad 7 will be used for mileage. for volleyball... 2.54 miles average calculated will be used.

debating whether or not to do a separate Olympics challenge during Vancouver Games. want to swim 1.50 miles.
