The new trash and recycling cans have RFID tags in them. They are above the number and in that lip. Nothing about this was mentioned in the literature or on the website.
Use of these cans is mandatory. So, what are they tracking? Why was this fact not disclosed?

Obama to let spy agencies scour Americans' finances
Impeachment would be nice except that it would put Biden in change. Well played, Barry.

What a surprise. Well, not really.
From Slate, which certainly doesn't lean right.
President Obama promised transparency and open government. He failed miserably. So why do Washington watchdog groups look the other way?

The plan for this year calls for one half-marathon and a fall marathon. My fingers are crossed that I'll into the NYC Marathon this year. If not, I haven't decided on a backup yet.
Add another 361 for velo and that's 1268 miles moving forward; a big drop from 2011 when I logged 975/474.

6730 out of 11422 finishers
My goal was a 4:15 and, up to around mile 15 or so, I was around a 9:10 pace and had a good shot at a low 4 finish. I never hit the wall but by mile 18 the feet and hamstrings were beginning to hurt. I didn't walk too much during this one, maybe 5-8 times for under a minute each time.
I high-fived Mayor Nutter at the finish line!
Overall, a well organized marathon; lots of enthusiastic spectators and great volunteers.

From the start, I paced behind the 1:50 group but finally lost sight of them around miles 7-8. The 1:55 group passed me around 10 but I was able to keep them in sight until the end. I hit the halfway point around 55 and change, mile 7 around 59 and change and 10 around 1:26. Once I hit 7 at 59 minutes I knew I could PR if I could run the next 6.1 miles in less than an hour. The hills around miles 7-9 were a b*tch and that's were I did some brief walking. Nonetheless, it was a successful run. Rest week is ahead and then I'll drop back into 10-12 miles a week and try to get more velo in.
