Bullet Update

  • Working on Episode 18 of the Tacboy and Bigun Podcast. We got a coaching lab rat. We got Otterbox reviews. We start the new new year with some good 'ol fashioned jib-jab.
  • Still looking ahead to the Minnesota Border to Border. Every other race is crap-shoot as to my participation or not. Actually, so is MN B2B...
  • Which brings me to my next note: Still Job Hunting. If I land a job, particularly the one I want out in Las Vegas, then the race schedule will REALLY be up in the air. Who knows what kind of time I'll have off then, especially for a week-long race.
  • In the mean time, still working the Installation Biz. It's been reduced to part-time since that's about all the business I get from all my sources. Unbelievable, but then I hear of friends in other industries losing 75% of their business, and I guess it makes sense.
  • As a fail safe, I've started working at the RV place again. Selling RV's. 100% Commission. Not at all what I ever wanted to do again, but these are tough times.
  • Training is an afterthought at this point. Getting in about one hour of running a week. Can't really call that training. 4 weeks until the Gasparilla half-marathon.
  • Blink and Christie will be here (gosh, I'm sure I spelled her name wrong... crap...) for Gasparilla, as will my Mom and her husband Bob, and who knows, maybe even the Tac and Trimama. At least I've got the spare bedrooms ready! I'll be mostly concerned with jogging the half mary, and having a great weekend with friends and family. Gosh, maybe my Mom will beat me! I'd better get out there and run a bit more....
  • Still lurve the Facebook.

You do what you've gotta do to keep beans on the table.

Good luck.

Gasparilla weekend sounds good.

All the best on keeping the income incoming.

ugh, what a tough job hunt.

Don't rule out Houston. It can't suck as bad as Vegas, and you've got room and board if you want it.

Good luck with the job hunt!!!

Bigun said...

Poor, poor Greyhound... having lived in Houston, my friend, I can assure that even Yellowknife Canada has more appeal than the city that apparently has you brainwashed.

Hang in there Bigun..sounds like the economy thing has hit you guys hard..try and get some running in-it will help!

S. Baboo said...

Hang in there man. It would be great to see you as close as Vegas and there is great racing out there but of course I would only wish it for you if it was good for you and Di.

Can't wait to hear your new episode, it's so nice to hear original stuff out there instead of something that's been copied from the net and recorded like it's their own..strange.
Good luck on the job front!

Ryan said...

I can so totally see you as a pit boss at MGM.
