I mentioned I've started running on the treadmill. I can now run continuously for an hour (5 miles). This weekend I'll try to push it up to 8 miles. Considering before last week I had never run more than 3.75 miles continuously (once around Crofton Pkwy), I'd have to say I'm pretty pleased.
Could the disaster of Social Security reform end up making me a happy man? Saw this link where Bob Rubin, former Sec. of Treasury for Clinton, talks about its devastating effects on housing prices and interest rates. I still need to know what the interest rate-housing price tradeoff is. Any real estate agents out there?
I've started writing again related to the dissertation. I'm moving on to working on the proposal, even though I still need to finish my area paper. All pages count in the end.
