A paleolimnologists is a scientist who pushes a long tube into a lake bed to take out a core sample. They can then look at the sediment layers like they are rings in a tree (one a year). The paleolimnologists can tell all sorts of things about the atmosphere, area land use, and water quality over the last 12,000 years. It is a great way to figure out how much the lake has changed since European settlers tripped upon it.
Thanks for stopping by. I am not training for a race but am training for an R2R2R run, running across the Grand Canyon and back.
There is a race connection though. My hope is that this training will get me in such good shape that I will run a decent marathon on 11/07 in Hamilton, Ontario. Certainly, 26.2 flat miles won't seem daunting after 46 miles with 11,300 feet of uphill.
Good Morning! Thanks so much for you comment on my Smiling-while-biking blog... I am looking for as much advice as I can get and I have a feeling that you have all sorts of insights that I should know about.
Have a fab weekend - one you can brag about come Monday!
