My first run post of 2013, I’m super motivated following my first 5K race where I hit a new PR of 23:11. Today I found my way back to Lincoln Woods, which has a great scenic road that loops around a lake. There’s lots of hills, which have caused me some leg pain in the past. The run today was great, might be my fastest pace here, but I could feel some leg pain coming back. I need to take it easy with this pace, I really shouldn’t come here more than once a week…at least until I build my legs up more.

Todd Proffitt’s Lighting iOS / Android Apps List in GoogleDocs
Here’s a great resource I want to pass along for my techie friends. Really, anyone who workings with lighting equipment will like this.
Todd Proffitt, a blogger who writes about Theater lighting has compiled a massive list of iOS and Android apps designed to help with lighting and stage direction. The list is organized by category covering a wide range of subjects including:
- DMX Calculators
- Stage Directions
- Beam Calculator
Currently, the list is available as a GoogleDoc Spreadsheet, which you can access here: bit.ly/theatreapps
What a great resource! I first heard about Todd’s list on Leo Laporte’s national radio show, “The Tech Guy
“. In the future Todd hopes to share this list in a different format, but I’m just happy he decided to compile and share what he has now.
Lincoln Woods is a great spot for winter running
Great run today at Lincoln Woods State Park
in Lincoln, Rhode Island. I started off slow as I navigated the snow and ice. Once I got comfortable and warmed up, the run was really enjoyable. The snow yesterday made the park picturesque and sunset just added to the scene.
The park was nearly empty on my second lap around the lake, peaceful and quiet.
December 30, 2012 Running Stats at Lincoln Woods State Park
I’ve run 155 miles since August, when I started to keep track using the RunKeeper
app. I’m hoping to peak out at 160 miles before the year ends.
Trail Running at the Cumberland Monastery
This is my first winter running outside, it’s still early in the season but I’m hoping to keep this up.
Runner’s World Magazine has a great series, Newbie Chronicles which is great source of motivating articles for folks starting out. Here’s the one that motivated me to purchase some light winter running gear and hit the trial: Foul-Weather Friend
Temperatures today were in the mid 30s and ice in spots, which began melting during my second lap around the grounds. The outdoors are really motivating.
The big obstacle for me right now is my diet, I need to do a better job. My diet is holding me back from better runs.

Screen shot of code needed to fix the WordPress Add Media Button
We’ll I spent an hour reading forums and searching the internet for answers on this one. Here’s the solution that worked for me:
Essentially you need to add one line of code to your “wp-config.php” file, which is located in the root of your WordPress Install.
Add this line of code:
define(‘CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS’, false );
I placed the line of code just below this string:
require_once(ABSPATH . ‘wp-settings.php’);
Hope this helps!

Just upgrade the site to WordPress 3.5 “Elvin” and switched to the new Twenty twelve theme. I’m always impressed by the WordPress upgrade process. Quick, simple and reliable! Makes the whole WordPress experience, I don’t think I’ve ever had a problem upgrading.
By comparison, a few years ago I ran a Drupal based website ( I know it’s not a direct comparison), it often took days to complete an upgrade.
Anyway, looking forward to exploring WordPress 3.5 updates and the new media manager.
