Well hello everyone. It's May 31st, 2011, and three years ago today, I joined the Tactical Gamer forums. The story of my journey to TG can be found at y two year anniversary post. But boy, have things come a long way from there.
In the past year at TG, I became an admin, and joined the content development team and started TG Cast (which will be back soon!). It's been just a great journey with TG here, and I fell like I've always been here. So I'd like to say a few words to a
Wanda Shan AAR
Subject: West Turbine Interception
Situation: The battle for Wanda Shan is going well after a desperate fight nearly brought ruin to the PLA. The Russians have been pushed back to their last flag and victory seems only a matter of time for the People’s Liberation Army! The majority of the team is focused on the hard fought battle at the last Control Point when reports filter in that a possible FO was built far west of our current Control
The lead editorial from the New York Times today:
"Whatever you make of the wars in which those soldiers fought, whatever you make of war itself, their sacrifices are real and permanent. How death came to them, now or then, is something only they can know. We who have not been called to war, or have been lucky enough not to lose anyone dear, still feel the loss. These are things worth remembering here in the last blush of spring, the first flush of summer."
From the Huffington Post:
As many of us excitedly look forward to gathering with friends and family and enjoying the long weekend, it's easy to lose sight of the significance of Memorial Day.
But for military families across the U.S., especially those of the estimated 5,885 American soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan in the last 10 years of war, it's a day to remember and honor those who have given their lives for our country.
For anyone in need
I could not bring my camera with me on the run because of the rain :-(
Ran for 4 hours, 44 minutes, and 41 seconds
Lost 4 pounds of water.
Finished with a 'PB' time (personal best) almost 5 minutes faster than my last marathon.
Burned approx 3,000 calories.
Lost two more toenails (tried a shoe half size smaller). Toenails quickly turn black, become very painful for a few days, and fall off after a month or more (they grow back...).
Average pace was 6:30/kilometre.
