Cool foreign phrases and stuff you can't pronounce
The scenes in the REI spring 2006 catalog looked really familiar. On this page the words "See the world. Meet the locals .... Learn cool foreign phrases" didn't seem to fit the pictures. Oh yeah, that's the Kingston Flyer. That's Lake Wakatipu. New Zealand. Not foreign at all.

A late comment on your "workout myth" post, which I read with interest.
However when you look at why people compensate with track workouts, the myth of it gets fuzzier.
I missed a week two weeks ago and when I got healty again did a set of hard 400s last week. I doubt it gave me any extra speed, but it sure blew my mental cobwebs away. I finished that workout and I was hungry again.
Hungry enough to run my fastest 5k since 2003 three days later.
