My ultimate goal in running was to run a half-marathon, which I did back in January. So, now it's more about just maintaining my weight and health and getting outdoors.
    Keep setting small goals...it helps from things getting stale. I know how hard it can be some days to get out there...especially in the heat & humidity. For me I don't need to run a race very often...the goals I set are usually related to running a little longer some days...or running a little shorter but faster other days. It's good to mix it up.

    Wow...that's a nice price...I should watch for a good sale. I did buy an "el cheapo" 240gig SSD at a local Micro Center about a month ago for about $25 just to play with.

    My wife loves her 2015 MBA...and she uses it quite a bit on battery power. So thin & light...my 17" MBP is like an Abrams Tank in comparison.

    When I FINALLY replace my 2011 17" MacBook Pro...I can see my next computer being a 15", 6-core, dual GPU, 2018 MacBook Pro with 16gig of RAM and as large an SSD as I can find (which I will purchase used). That will probably be in 2-3 years when the used price drops to a point I find attractive. Lol

    We're finally going to escape the miserable heat of Northeast Thailand. We've had a long string of 40C and over days with high humidity. (That's about 104F.) We're off to the beach (Cha Am) where it's in the low 30s (90s).

    Wow, that seems to be about a 6hr, 425 km drive according to Google Maps!!

    But worth it to avoid that extreme temp and humidity IMHO!!!


    EDIT:
    Thanks for the nice webcam views and specs!! Nice.
