Happy New Year!

Tonight starts the Jewish New Year, called Rosh Hashana. This is a great holiday, because you get to eat sweet foods and take a day off of work. Some people might argue that they rather be working than in a synagouge, but I am not one of those people. I enjoy services and everything that goes with it.

This past Saturday I ran for the first time in months. From the way I feel, I think that I should have shortened my run a bit. Yesterday I went biking with a group from the local bike shop. They are incredible. We were going 25-30 mph non-stop. After running and drinking too much the day before, I could not keep up. So much for my easy 50 miler. Instead I ended up with 35 miles underneath me and called it a morning.

That afternoon I volunteered at a local soup kitchen. It was a lot of fun. Afterwards a friend and I had lunch and washed cars. He couldn't believe how much I ate. I told him that this summer, I would have eaten twice that much and been hungry again an hour later.

Last night I learned how to carve pumpkins...professionally. I have carved a few triangles and jagged teeth before, but nothing like this. My friend and I carved Willie E. Coyote and Nemo (from Finding Nemo the movie). They look great. I will put up a picture before Halloween.

I wish everyone a wonderful, sweet and happy new year.
