Hoo boy, I’ve been absent for a while now. There’s a suitably stupid reason, which of course I will share with you. I try to write these just after a race, but lately we’ve been trying to sell our house and that’s been a hell of a ride which will require its own book one […]
Okay, so… it’s been a while since I’ve written anything. That’s a cliche and I’m sorry to the four of you who still read these posts, but I gots reasons.
This one was tough. I haven’t done much over the winter, so 10K is a large number for me right now. Still, I have enough leftover fitness to knock it out, even though it’ll cost me later.
I’m tempted to just count these as one event now, but I run them on different days in different weather, so I suppose I’ll keep going with separate posts. This one will be a bit short, though.
Time for the 10K event in the ZombiesRun Fall 2016 Race! Just like last time, there are two leaderboards and two sets of results. There’s access to Rofflenet and training missions and everything else that we had last time, plus a few improvements to the website.
Here we are again, and I’m doing yet another virtual zombie race from Six to Start. These are a mixed bag for me, but I’m still happy to register for them. The ZombiesRun! app continues to improve, and so do these races.
Between farmers’ markets and overtime at my day job, I’ve almost given up on doing races. Sometimes we get lucky, though. I happened to have a Saturday free, and there was a race just a few blocks from my house. If I could get home to change and register within a half-hour, I was good to go.
Recently I decided to start the inevitable move from (extremely useful) apps like Codekit and MAMP to Gulp. I’m not an expert yet, but I managed to find some good resources for setting things up as well as some solutions for common troubles. I’m posting this as a reference rather than a tutorial.
For those of you who don’t already know, I’m a big-time Star Trek fan. I’m especially interested in the original series, and some of my favorite content comes from an old role-playing game from a company called FASA in the 1980’s. The game had an extensive timeline of events, and I’ve always wanted an easier way to read through it. Since I grew up to be a web developer, the obvious choice is to build an app!
Here we go with the 10K event in the Zombies Run Spring Virtual Race! I knew I was too out of shape to be competitive, so I just did a steady cruise with my favorite puggle. It was her first time going that far, so we took it easy.
It’s that time again! I’ve been hard up for races since we started the bakery, so I was excited when Six to Start announced another virtual race for the Spring. Naturally, I caught a frustrating cold just before the race window opened.
It’s Thanksgiving again, so it’s time for a couple thousand people to go running through the streets of Portland, Maine. Haven’t done this one since 2012, and I was glad to be back.
If you have more than one data source for your AngularJS app, then you’ll need them all completed before the thing runs. Although this is a common problem, solutions can be hard to find on the Unhelpful Interwebs. But don’t worry, I promise we can solve it.
