Uh Huh Her Concert, San Francisco, CA. March 29, 2011

Twas 10 days after the 2011 LA Marathon, I went thru an endurance event of a different kind.  It was a limited seating general admission concert for Uh Huh Her, an independent rock/new wave/electropop band.  I haven't gone to a limited seating general admission concert in a while, so no telling how my legs would react.

The Great American Music Hall, est. 1907.

To see:
The marquee.

The dark lighting was a challenge for my camera, but I managed a few pics.

The opening act:  Diamonds Under Fire.
Camila (center) of Uh Huh Her made a guest appearance during the opening act.
Leisha of Uh Huh Her on keyboards.

After the show, Uh Huh Her signed some autographs and greeted some fans.

Camila (left) and Leisha posed for this pic.

Mini Background on Uh Huh Her
Leisha Hailey might be more known as "Alice" on The L Word.  Previously, she was in the bands, The Murmurs and then Gush.

Most recently, Camila Grey was part of the live band on tour with American Idol winner, Adam Lambert.  She was in a band, Mellowdrone, and has worked with a variety of artists, including Dr. Dre, Busta Rhymes, Kelly Osborne.

I enjoyed the show.  Thanks to Uh Huh Her for stopping by San Francisco on their tour.
I believe Uh Huh Her is on tour thru June 2011.  For more info. about their tour, click here.  (Note:  The link goes to Facebook.)

Knowing When to Fold: 2011 Oakland Running Festival. March 26, 2011

I made a trek to the Oakland Running Festival (aka Oakland Marathon) Fitness and Health Expo today. The Rock 'n' Roll Marathon (RnR) folks were at the expo, and I wanted to register for an event, taking advantage of their $10 discount and get a promo T.

When I arrived, there was a long line of people waiting outside the expo hall, trying to get in.  They were trying to register for 1 of a variety of Oakland Running Festival events, including Marathon, Half Marathon or 5k.  Only the Team Relay was sold out.

I went inside the expo and looked briefly around before making a beeline to the RnR booth.  I filled out the registration form for the RnR San Jose Half Marathon, getting a $10 discount and a promo T.
2011 RnR San Jose Half Marathon promo T

I walked around a bit more before ending up at 1 of the registration tables near the front.
The temptation:  registration forms

My legs had recovered enough from last weekend's LA Marathon.  They are ready to run another Half Marathon tomorrow.  My hand was itching and wanted to reach inside my bag for a pen to fill in the registration form when, lo and behold, I saw the following sign:
The stop sign

The price of $110 for the Half Marathon was too much for me.  It made me put my wallet away quickly.

I then milled around the expo some more.  It's a pretty small expo.  At one point, a volunteer thought I was a race participant and attempted to hand me a goody bag.  I declined.
Goodie bags.  The angel in me declined.  The devil in me says, "Yes, take one."

I got a pic of a couple Oakland Raiderettes.

Oakland Raiderettes were in the house!!!

I also got a pic of some running super heroes.

Some of the memorable vendors included the following:  Pasadena Marathon, Giants Race, GEICO, Urban Cow Half Marathon, GU, Rock 'n' Roll Marathon and Half Marathon Series, FRS, Go for It Sports, Power Balance, Oakland Raiders and Sprint.

I had fun at this year's expo.  Sometimes, you just got to know when to fold.  Perhaps another year, I'll run in an Oakland Running Festival event.

Good luck to those running!!!

My 2011 LA Marathon - Snippet. Event date: March 20, 2011

The weather was brutal during the LA Marathon.  The rainy downpours were at times torrential rain.  The winds were strong and often were 20+ mph.

I has some bad miles along the way but finished very strong with a new PR on the marathon distance.

I'll try to put together a longer recap as soon as the pics come out.  I left the pic taking to the course photographers as I didn't want to damage my own camera.  I am hoping that a pic or 2 might be good enough.

I was very humbled by the brave volunteers and course spectators who supported the event.  They went thru a different type of endurance challenge supporting the event in such rough weather conditions.

2011 LA Marathon, Runner Tracking and Some Words of Advice Using Runner Tracking

Recently, the 2011 LA Marathon announced that a runner tracking feature would be available to alert friends and family the progress of a participant in the race via email, Facebook and/or twitter.  The instructions and instructions from other runner tracking systems I had seen all lack a few words of caution which I will share with you.

From experience, runner tracking does not always work.  In 2009, I participated in the Nike Women's Half Marathon in San Francisco, CA.  The event offered a fee based runner tracking service.  Some participants loved the idea of alerting their family and friends their progress and signed up, while on the other hand, family and loved ones attempted to or used the updates to move from one spot to another during the event trying to catch a glimpse of their participant go by.

What was a great idea melted down during the event.  Some participants reported the runner tracking failed to track them during the middle of the event, while others reported that they were never even tracked from the very get go.

Although refunds were given, some family and friends of participants were emotionally shaken over the runner tracking meltdown during the event.  They had thought something bad had happened to their participant on the course.  In addition, unfortunately in my area, there has been 3 deaths during half marathons in recent years, including 2 at the 2009 Rock 'n' Roll San Jose Half Marathon, so some loved ones were more concerned than had these deaths not occurred.  Hopefully, there has been no deaths during events in your area.

So, if you use a runner tracking program during an event, please do tell your loved ones that technology may or may not always work and that something bad may or may not have happened to you on the course if the technology fails.  I have signed up for runner tracking for the 2011 LA Marathon, and I already told my loved ones the aforementioned words of advice.

Rock 'n' Roll Las Vegas Registration is Now Open for a Limited Time. Event date: December 4, 2011

2011 RnR Las Vegas Marathon and Half Marathon
Date:  December 4, 2011, Sunday
Start and Finish Locations: Mandalay Bay
Course:  TBD

Half Marathon Marathon
Start Times 5:30 PM* 4:00 PM*
Time Limit 4 Hours 4 Hours, 30 Minutes
Course Capacity N/A 5,000

Exclusive Limited Time Registration:
  • March 8th at 5:45pm (PST) through March 10th at 5:45 pm (PST).
  • Register for $121, the lowest price of the year.
  • Registration will go dark from March 10th at 5:45 pm (PST) until May 31st at 12:00 am (PST).

The price came down to $121.

4:30 for a Full is draconian.  Very unlike RnR as most of their events have usually been generous.

Currently, I'm on the fence:
  1. $121 is still pricey.
  2. I am more a fan of the Mouse than Sin City.

7.01 Miles and Chased by a Dog. March 3, 2011

The Good:
I was supposed to stop at 6 miles.  But, it was dark, and I overshot things, ending at 7.01 miles.

The Bad:
I got chased by a large dog off leash.  I had to stop during a nice pace.  The owner of the dog kept calling the dog's name, but it seemed only interested in me and didn't respond to its owner.  Fortunately, I was not bitten or scratched.

New Southwest Airlines Frequent Flyer Program: Is it Right for Me? March 3, 2011

I think I have been confused just as the next person...or even more...regarding Southwest's new frequent flyer program, so I crunched the numbers to see if I should move some of my business elsewhere.

Under the Old Program
  • 16 credits = 1 Standard Award Ticket
  • 32 credits = 1 Freedom Award Ticket
  • 1 car rental = generally, 0.5 credit, therefore 32 car rentals (32 x 0.5) = 1 Standard Award Ticket

Under the New Program
  • est 20,280* points = 1 lower end transcontinental flight
  • est 10,680* points = 1 lower end short haul flight
  • 1 car rental = 600 points
 *Actual points do vary.

New Program Awards and Renting Cars
  1. Under the new program, I would have to rent 34 car rentals for a lower end transcontinental award ticket.
  2.  Under the new program, I would have to rent 18 car rentals for a lower end short haul award ticket.

Winners and Losers
  1. The new Southwest frequent flyer program benefits someone who rents cars frequently and flies short haul often.
  2. The loser of the new Southwest frequent flyer program is someone who flies short haul frequently but wants transcontinental award tickets.

Almost No Changes
For those renting vehicles frequently, there is not that much difference between the old program and the new program.

Under the old program, 32 car rentals = 1 Standard Award ticket, while the new program requires 34 car rentals for a low end transcontinental award ticket.

No Changes
  1. Southest's Bags Fly Free policy still stands with certain baggage limitations.  United generally charges $25 for the 1st bag and $35 for the 2nd bag on domestic flights each way.  Advantage:  Southwest by $120
  2. No change fee.  I believe United charges $150 to change many tickets.  Advantage:  Southwest by $150

My Conclusion
I am going to have a lot less transcontinental award tickets from now on.  :(

Always Inspect Your Gel Wrappers before Leaving the Store. March 2, 2011

I made a trek to an REI to pick up an order, which included a bunch of PowerBar gels.

I picked up my order and put the plastic bag of PowerBar gels into my bag to take home.

When I got home, I opened the plastic bag and noticed that there was a leak coming out from 1 of the wrappers.  Upon closer inspection, I realized that there was a small leak coming from a gash on 1 of the wrappers.

Rats!!!  Now, I have to make the trek across town to exchange 1 freakin' PowerBar gel.

So, take it from me, always inspect your gel wrappers BEFORE leaving the store.

Southwest Airlines: What Happened to My Credits and Awards? March 2, 2011

My favorite airline, Southwest Airlines, underwent an overhaul of their frequent flyer program.  I logged into my account, saw my account listed at 0 balance and freaked out.  I was way closer to a new award ticket than to a 0 balance.  I am hoping by my writing this out, it will help out some folks out there.

Thanks to a nice poster on FB named, Jill Sadlak, and some poking around on Southwest's new frequent flyer program, I managed to find my old credits.

I tried to put the following directions on FB, but FB wouldn't permit such long post, so I am blogging about it here.

How to Find Your Credits and Awards on the Newly Overhauled Southwest Airlines Frequent Flyer Program.
  1. After logging in to your Southwest Airlines frequent flyer account, go to the middle on the right side of the screen where you should see your name and probably 0 points.
  2. Just go below the 0 points to "My Rapid Rewards."
  3. Click on the "+" box on the "My Rapid Rewards."
  4. There should be an area listing "Credit and Award Status."  There should be a "?" and the words "What Happened to My Credits and Awards?"
  5. Click on the words, "What Happened to My Credits and Awards?" and your old credits should be listed.  Just below your old credits, click on "View Full List of Awards" and your awards should be there.

Please forward this link around to help out other travelers.

For more info. about Southwest Airlines and their frequent flyer program, click here.  Currently, they are attempting to resolve issues, so I would try to be extra, extra, extra patient.
