It's my birthday today. I'm 37. I saw what I want this morning on my way to work: a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 8. I really love these cars.
Speaking of Evo's, Carl was gracious enough to allow me to run a couple of sessions in his Evo 10 at the ASE Lapping Club's winter lapping day last Sunday. Here are a few photos by JAG:

|Oops, a bit too close to the edge...|
|AWD + snow = fun!|

In other news, my girl's basketball team won a second game last Saturday in convincing fashion. Although the team is only 2 and 5, we are in the positive in the points for / points against column. When we lose, it's not by much. When we win, we win big! The team's offence is finally starting to pick up. We have a non-points tournament next weekend in Cowansville, and I hope we can string together a couple of wins.
I haven't had a game in my men's league since before the holidays. We hadn't lost in a while and I hope we can continue the streak this Friday
I managed to keep running twice a week during the holidays. Alex gave me a great GPS watch with heart monitor for Christmas. It's great fun to analyze your speed, heart rate and the route you took from the comfort of home. I even figured out how to map my runs with Google Earth. Pretty cool! It's been cold out, but one stays surprisingly warm when running!
