91. 70-miles per week
I am training for a 50k race in October (the John Holmes Trail Run ). It will be my first Ultramarathon. I decided to go up in distance rather than taking another shot at the marathon. Perhaps I had some lingering doubts after my first and only marathon experience. In ...

93. Melon Run 2013 - Race Report
The Melon Run 3 mile race is held in Gainesville, FL on the 4th of July. I am a bit delinquent posting a race report. There isn't much to say, it was HOT and HUMID as usual. I handled the heat much better than last year, mostly by mental preparation ...

94. Upgrade Home Desktop Computer, Still Running Linux
I've been musing about getting a faster computer ever since Steam for Linux was released. As mentioned previously, TF2 (Team Fortress 2) was playable on my old computer... but I had to run at a reduced resolution. At about the same time, I was doing some intensive graphics editing in ...

95. Spring 2013 - Alachua County Friends of the ...
It's time again for the Alachua County Friends of the Library Spring book sale. I have not been reading nearly as much lately, mostly due to my running habit, but I do still like to go to the book sale just to browse. I only bought a few books this ...

Saturday was perfect for racing at the Lloyd Clarke Sports Trail of Payne 10k, held at Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park. It was a brisk morning, with temps in the 40s at race start and a nice fog rising off Lake Wauburg. Before the race, I felt good and ready ...

97. Steam and Team Fortress 2 on Linux
The Steam software distribution network and native games are finally available on Linux! I stopped gaming a few years back when my dual-booted install of Windows crapped out.

98. Newnan's Lake 15k 2013 - Race Report

I finished my first marathon! Here I am crossing the finish line of the Jacksonville Bank Marathon with a chip time of 3:26:14. Photos copyright brightroom, Inc. I received a nice finisher medal and t-shirt. Some people may wonder about wearing minimalist shoes for 26.2 miles, but I have to ...

I'm still catching up on race reports... Lloyd Clarke Sports put on a great 2012 Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot 10k race here in Gainesville, Florida. The weather was perfect with temps in the 40s at start time. I slipped on my New Balance Minimus Zero MT00 trail shoes and took ...

101. Trackbacks and Pingbacks are now disabled
Sorry Spammers, I am tired of useless trackback and pingback traffic. I have decided to disable pingback and trackback here on my thatlinuxbox blog. Hopefully I can spend my time on better things than deleting spammer garbage.

102. Product Review - Altra Samson Minimalist Shoes

103. Trail Running in the Hocking Hills, Ohio
On Christmas Day I ran from Old Man's Cave to Cedar Falls to Ash Cave along the Buckeye Trail in the Hocking Hills. It was a cold day (32 degrees), with lots of icicles hanging from the rock formations. The trail section between Old Man's Cave and Cedar Falls is ...

104. Tom Walker Memorial Half Marathon 2012 - Race ...
I'm a little behind on posting my last few race reports. I ran the Tom Walker Memorial Half Marathon on December 1, 2012, just a few weeks before attempting my first marathon. This race was a Florida Track Club event and this year the FTC provided pace groups. The two ...

105. Specify QUERY_STRING to PHP CLI
Thanks to an ancient http://PHP.net comment (http://www.php.net/manual/en/features....php#26201) and a Joomla! forum post (http://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php...3#p1318363), I was able to figure out how to run a Joomla php script from the command line and specify query parameters *without* having to modify any of the PHP code to parse the arguments / options. Most ...

106. Gainesville Fisher House Veterans Day 5k 2012 - ...
I recently ran the Gainesville Fisher House Veterans Day 5k race. I was pleased to participate in this event that was well-organized and for a good cause. Martin McCrory's Race Pace Photos took pictures of the event and as always they did an awesome job. I have purchased a number ...

107. You might be an Altramaniac if...
I was recently accused of being an Altramaniac by one of the sales folks at a local running store. When I look at my collection of Altra Zero Drop shoes, it is kind of hard to argue. I do own at least one pair of every model of Altra Zero ...

108. Dead Mermaid
I was going through some old photos tonight and found this picture of a poor dead mermaid that we saw washed up on the rocks in Puerto Rico. The photo was taken near the Castillo San Felipe del Morro in Old San Juan. Here is a cropped / zoomed version ...

109. My first 50-plus mile running week
A few weeks ago my family was out of town. I took the opportunity to run... a lot... and managed to hit my first 50+ mile week. It helped that I could take naps when needed and was able to go to bed early. Here is a screenshot of my ...

110. Barefoot Running Study at the University of Florida
I recently participated in a barefoot running study at the University of Florida Department of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation. As of the time I started writing this blog post, the study is still seeking participants (http://www.ortho.ufl.edu/research/studies/barefoot-running). The stated purpose of the study is to compare how many calories are used and ...

112. Do Not Collect Army Ants
We just set up an ANTWORKS ant farm. It's pretty cool. The gel inside was developed by NASA to send ants into space. Take heed of the warning about Army Ants: "Note: DO NOT attempt to collect Army Ants in your ANTWORKS container. Should you see several hundred thousand very ...

114. Soft Star Moc3 is still the best minimalist ...
To be fair, the Spring 2012 shoe models from many companies are not yet widely available and I have not yet tried them all. Reviews are starting to appear on the web and some of the forthcoming shoes do look interesting. However, they would have to be really completely awesomely ...

115. Fiction Read During 2011
I read 17 works of fiction during 2011. This number is down from the previous two years. Family, running, and the new job has cut into my reading time. I am doing my best to make more time for reading every day, mostly by spending less time squandering my time ...

A few months ago I started standing at work. I've been tweaking my desk area and this is where I am today, version 2.0 of my standing workstation: The upper LCD shelf is made from a cheap melamine shelf with CAPITA legs from IKEA. So far it is working well, ...

118. Running in Austin on the Barton Springs Greenbelt
I spent time over the holidays in Austin, Texas. Austin has some wonderful trails and greenways. I entered the Barton Springs Greenbelt at its Zilker Park trailhead, parking the car near the Barton Springs Pool facility. I have to digress and mention that Zilker Park is just great. Children and ...

119. Lloyd Clarke Sports - wall of shoes
The other day I snapped a photo of the awesome wall of shoes at Lloyd Clarke Sports: This really deserves a wide angle lens rather than my little smart phone camera. The shoe choices are amazing and include many minimalist shoes. I continue to hope that they will start carrying ...

120. A Bunch of Running Shoes
A few people have asked how many shoes I have. Ever since running became one of my primary recreational activities, shoes have become a significant hobby of mine. I used to spend money on things like video games and computer gadgets. Now I spend money on shoes. Here is a ...
