Lake Placid

Action, Sci Fi, Thriller No Comments »

After the Brooklyn Biathlon on Sunday, I came into the living room and a horrible sci fi movie was starting on tv.  A sheriff was in a row boat trying to pull someone out of a lake amid a lot of thrashing about.  The sheriff finally pulled the man into the boat only to find that he was missing half his torso and his legs.  Gross!  But something aout this horrible sci fi movie was different.  The sheriff was played by Brendan Gleeson who you may know from such movies as Braveheart and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.  This movie, Lake Placid, was one of those rare mainstream sci fi creature movies with an all star cast including Bill Pullman, Bridget Fonda, Oliver Platt and Betty White.  These are a different breed of monster movie because they pay the stars too much to kill them off one by one (I guess the actors in Deep Blue Sea cost less) so they need to have more story.  It was a nice change of pace from last week’s Sabretooth.

On Sunday, I ran the Brooklyn Biathlon for the 2nd year in a row. I only rode my bike one time before the race (oops) and it shows in my times. The race was a 2.1 mile run, 10 mile bike ride, 2.1 mile run. I finished 4 minutes faster than last year. I came in 133rd.

Just so you all know, I’m trying to mend my couch potato ways. On Sunday I ran the Scotland Run, a 10k. Here are my split times:

mile 1 …………10.31.53
mile 2 ………..10.20.62
mile 3 …………9.45.54
mile 4 …………9.46.37
mile 5 …………9.12.51
mile 6………….8.45.24
.2 miles ……….1.50.12

total 1:00:11

Looking forward to getting faster… and then maybe watching Chariots of Fire a few times.
