1. New Orleans Rebirth 5K Run/Walk
2. Raises money to help rebuild New Orleans (which will be needed even more now).
3. It's on the morning of my birthday (what a way to celebrate turning 30).
In light of recent events, I expect this race to be full, so I went ahead and registered just to get myself in. This will also be the first time I plan to use the Metro rail to get to and from a run...so we'll see how that goes.

I stopped when I could to check it out...then started to limp down the GW Parkway (this ended up being a mistake). Why's that, because it has no shoulder! Tire eventually got worse, and to the point where I finally hit the exit to Rosslyn and I finally had to pull over. Here's where I thank the high heavens that today was a nice day...because I spent the next 45ish minutes on the shoulder figuring out through my manuals how to take off the tire and put the spare on. Needless to say I did it, although I sweated my ass off doing so (and chose today to wear white shorts...haha).
Anyways, I got it on and made my way to my VW dealer hoping they would still be open...and I got there right after their service dept. closed. Luckily I have a tire warranty, so here's hoping I can cash in and get the same type of tire. Meanwhile my GTI probably smells of burning rubber with that wheel in the back (I do have the windows cracked though).
So yeah, it sucked...but I'm proud I did it by myself...and hopefully I won't be paying a dime out of pocket.

AP News Wire - Crisis
All of the Wal-Marts across Alabama sold out of ammunition as of yesterday.
A reliable source said that one of the purchasers commented that while Russia
may have invaded Georgia, they sure as hell ain't doin' it to Alabama.

Upper Level End Zone
(and maybe my Dad watching on TV back @ my apartment).
I'm so excited...although it can take it's time getting here. With the week after that being my oh-so-glorious 30th. :P

In sad news, it's truly a shock about Bernie Mac. R.I.P. funny man. :(
