More blogging

Blogger is working on new "dynamic view" formats that are rather interesting. I'm not sure if I'd want to change, I rather like my little place the way it is, but it seems like people will be able to choose how they want to view your blog. In fact, you can do it right now! Click on these links to get an idea of the new options:

Interesting no? What do you think?

In other news, Andrew's mission reunion was tonight and although I went more for the food than anything else (hey, there's good food at these things!)  it was a nice evening. It's fun to see people from a part of Andrew's life that I didn't share.

I also officially signed up for a 5K... so now I'm forced to do it. It's something I've been wanting to do for while, just to prove to myself I can (this is coming from the girl who hated P.E. such much she may or may not have gotten waivers more than once to get out of it when it was running time...), plus the cause for this one is something I can definitely get behind.

It's the second annual "Commit to Virtue" run, organized by BYU's Students That Oppose Pornography (S.T.O.P.). I may be pretty passionate about the first amendment, but when it comes to pornography it just isn't as simple as "I'm allowed to publish pornography and that is my right to free speech." It's also about the women the industry exploits and abuses, the families its influence destroys, the men who suffer from addiction, and the objectification of human beings. So yes, I think the world would definitely be a better place without it.

I started warming up today (I'd call it "training" but then you might think I actually knew what I was doing), and just about died... good thing I still have a little over a week! When you think about it, I've DANCED the homecoming parade route three years in a row, so this really can't be that bad right? And we'll be following essentially the same path. But realistically, I'll probably run, walk, run, walk, and just make it through to the end at this point. Hey, it's a start!

Elaine S Dalton will be doing it too, so we'll be in good company! The sad thing is she'll probably outrun me. Oh well.

  1. I wish you a lot of luck. You are definitely braver than I am, to be attempting something like that. Good for you!
