Bloomsday Weekend + Marathon recap

I know, I know. I’ve been quiet. Honestly, I’ve just been so blah about life, busy, and just plain tired.

I’m in week 14 of 18 of marathon training. In all honesty, the training has been going well. I mean I’m not super fast, but the training has been more enjoyable. Why? Cuz most of it has not been done alone. I’ve been running with other runners. One gal, my neighbor, has ENDLESS energy. I don’t know where she gets it from. She can easily just whip out 13 miles with no training. She’s amazing. She helps push me in the later miles where I usually struggle. She doesn’t take it hard when I cuss her out for pushing me up hill.

Runs, puppies, tris…oh my!

Yea, yea. I haven’t updated since I dropped a bomb shell in the form of a furry dog.

Needless to say, a lot has happened and yet it doesn’t feel like it:

– I’ve completed 2 halfs since April: Coeur d’Alene and Seattle Rock n’ Roll.
– I’ve got my first tri not this weekend, but the next and have not really felt like I’ve trained for it.
– Roxie (did I say her name last time?) is still adorkable and very much alive and well (and spoiled rotten–I mean well loved).

The Legend of Zelda: Triforce Heros

First off, Happy Easter everyone! Or as my kiwi and I have been calling it, Bunny Day! I won’t go into detail what I was calling it–it was less PG and more PG-13.

Anywho, not sure if I’ve mentioned this or not, but I’m a gamer. I’ve been told I’m a casual gamer though (by some guy I used to know who was more hardcore gamer and jerk but we won’t go into that). My video game urgers comes and goes in spurts. There are certain series I pay attention to though. Final Fantasy is one (not the only one ones) and my biggest passion? Zelda. I got into Zelda when my parents purchased Ocarina of Time on a N64. Ahhh..the good ol’ days. From then on, I was hooked. I’ve got all the Game Boy/DS/3DS ones that have come out since then. I never disliked a Zelda game. I’ve enjoyed them all for different reasons. I have my faves though. OoT will always be my top fave. I think Twilight Princess will also be right up there (I’m a sucker for Epona). I enjoyed Windwaker and Majora’s Mask. I’m not a huge fan of Skyward Sword, but I like the gameplay. Overall, I’ve enjoyed them all.

SSH and Putty color schemes

I’ve been using Putty for SSH for over a year now. I really haven’t changed the default settings since using it. After having to live in SSH the last couple of weeks, I got seriously tired of the black background and dark blue colors. SO annoying. I tried to do a lot of research on how to change it via SSH and profiles and .dircolors. It just wasn’t working. I could get it to work temporarily when I sourced a file once but it never stuck. Tried it through Putty as well, but again, it never worked or the color scheme was replaced when I logged out and logged in. I was finally able to figure out what buttons to push and in what order thanks to one ServerFault thread that kind of shed light on it.
