If you are an email or RSS subscriber, you may not have noticed the new banner image:
The WordPress theme has also been updated and the menus have re-arranged a bit. Come check it out sometime.
Anyway, the new banner image shows me stroking along in the middle of the Santa Barbara Channel. There’s Cathy in the kayak (this must have been about 7 hours into the swim), and behind her the Fuji III (containing Rob, Mark, Dave, Ben, Capt. Forrest), heading off at a strange angle. The photo is actually a GoPro still-frame from Ben, one of the filmmakers behind the documentary DRIVEN.
For old-times’ sake, here’s the previous banner image – that’s me warming up at the Noblesville 10K in July 2010.
Incidentally, if you’re an RSS subscriber, you may have heard the sad news of Google Reader‘s impending demise. If you’re shopping around for a new feed reader, I recommend checking out Newsblur and Feedly. Feedly is slicker and prettier; Newsblur is closer to Google Reader’s layout and may be preferable for power users. Personally I’m going with Newsblur.
