BETTER IN TIME

A serial marathoner's tips on how to run your next 26.2 faster than your last.

By Dean Karnazes
PUBLISHED 06/30/2008 On September 17, 2006, I sat stiffly in a hotel room with a needle in my arm. It was 5:30 in the morning on Day 1 of The North Face Endurance 50—in which I would run 50 certified marathon courses in 50 states in 50 days. The phlebotomist who had been hired to stick this needle in my arm—a stout, thin-lipped woman in her mid-50s—filled three vials with blood and then handed me a small plastic cup.

We've already passed the eras of Generations X and Y, but there's no Z on the horizon. Rather, the next generation will probably be affiliated with F, for - yup, you guessed it - Facebook.

Earth Hour 2009
Started in Sydney, Australia in 2007, Earth Hour quickly grew into a global observance. More than 1,000 cities in over 80 countries observed Earth Hour 2009 on Saturday March 28th, as homes, office towers and landmarks turned off their lights for an hour starting at 8.30 pm local time to raise awareness about climate change and the threat from rising greenhouse gas emissions. Collected here are a series of before-and-after photographs - which (starting with the second one below) will fade between "on" and "off" when clicked. Let me state that again, since I know not everyone reads the whole intro here - starting with image #2 below, click on the image to see an animated fade between "on" and "off". This effect requires javascript to be enabled. (17 photos total)

I first laid eyes on a Samsung Omnia i900 at the Korean company's booth in CommunicAsia in Singapore last June. It was launched here in October, so I was a bit surprised when the Samsung Electronics Indonesia PR company called me and offered an opportunity to review it.

I immediately accepted the offer. Although it is already a few months old, as far as I can recall it is the first Samsung smartphone I have ever tested.

I was given only one week to put it through its paces, so I had to work fast. By the way, it is not really a surprise that Samsung Electronics Indonesia wants to reinforce in our memory the 3G HSDPA Omnia's image as a premium handset.

"It is so comfortable lying here I do not want to get up". Most people have heard this phrase but not many have heard it from someone lying in the middle of a road in the middle of an afternoon. The location was not in the middle of nowhere, it just seemed that way; 150 km from the start and 30 km from the finish of the cycle leg of Challenge Wanaka an ironman length triathlon in New Zealand.
