We started with a series of stormy days, rare for this time of year in the desert. Here are a few pics:

And now, the Oktoberfest Beer Review. First, I'll tell you that I like beer, but I don't drink it much. I am not a snob, but if I'm going to have a beer, I want it to be something good. So, this week I bought a sixer of Sierra Nevada's Tumbler amber ale.

Now, I just need some big tuba player and my wife to wear one of those beer wench costumes and I will truly be in the Oktoberfest spirit. Wish me luck.
Tomorrow, my wife and I will join some friends up in Phoenix at the Tour de Fat, an event sponsored by New Belgium Brewing Company. I'll post pictures, but here's a few from when Katy went to the one in Denver last month.
And finally, I received something in the mail yesterday. It was a certificate from the organizers of the El Tour de Tucson 5K run that I did two weeks ago. I already wrote about the race here. They sent me a certificate for finishing in 3rd place in my age group! I already knew that this is where I ranked (there were only five guys in my age/gender group), but this was the first time in my life that I ever "placed" in a race! Pretty exciting and it makes me wonder why I went for so many years without trying to exercise. At age 44, I am changing my life. Maybe, I'll be #1 in my age group in a future race!
Have a good weekend, everyone!
