I had fun exploring around on the site (my computer geek side coming out), and think that it has the potential to be as big as wikipedia if it catches on....
One section I really liked was the Health and Fitness section located here
In that section, you can:
- estimate your calories burned during a run
- compute your body mass index
- see what your risk of heart disease is
- see if you're too drunk to drive
- compare mortality rates between countries
- estimate conception or due dates for a pregnancy
- and so much more....
I ran 4 miles yesterday in the late afternoon heat of the day. I was dumb and didn't take any water. After 2 miles I was parched and I spent the last two miles looking for any sprinklers or hoses that might be on (never found any). I also got chased by a pit bull. I hate it when people don't keep their dogs fenced or tied up.
Today I was up before 6:00 and ran 3 miles in the cool air of the early morning. It felt great and was perfect running weather. I carried a full water bottle in my hand, not because I thought I'd need water, but more as an experiment, to see how I liked hand carrying as opposed to using a fuel belt. The conclusion was that although it wasn't too bothersome, it will take some getting used to if I'm going to do it regularly.
For all you American Idol fans, yay Kris! I was glad he won. He will have a broader appeal, and I like his humble spirit.
Today is the last day of school for my two boys. I can't believe it. Where has the school year gone? I am going to take tomorrow off from work to spend the first day of summer with them doing something fun.
