Thought I would share a little about my work life.
I am currently working on a new line of power converters, code named "Magneto"

I really like the early stages of development where you get to be creative and come up with lots of new and interesting ideas. There will probably be a patent application or two.

I can't share much of the details on the project at this point. I will share as it is released.

Thanks for following my blog,

Marathon training Week 2

Training is going good. I ran 4 miles in 47 minutes this morning. I will be doing a 5 mile run on Saturday, 6 miles the next week, 8 the following, and up and up. I will be doing over 20 miles total per week soon.

My new shoes are great, not looking forward to getting them wet when the rain comes in later this week.

When I get that camera I will share some photos of my running trail.

This week I will buy a heart monitor watch so I can better track my training level.

See you on the trail,

Jolly Roger plans

Update on the Jolly Roger:

She is still in Peruto Vallarta. I did a short visit last month and will be back down to check on her and pay my moorage fee the first weekend in December.
I will finish up the fuel tank leak repair and continue on the list of Things To Do.

The target date for leaving for Hawaii is June 1. I have two experience sailors who have shown interest in the 1st leg of the trip. The plan is to re-provision and re-crew in Hawaii and after a short cruise in the islands, make for the Pacific NW.

I will take some photos in December!
