where I stop and I turn and I go for a ride

So, nothing really exciting to report for the weekend. Some snow today, but otherwise boring up here in the frozen wasteland. I improved my 10K and 5 mile times to 53:11 and 41:07 respectively. I also watched The Italian Job (the original version) and The Great Escape. Yup, it was old movie weekend here.

I do have to say that the original version of The Italian Job is really good, and in its own way, better than the 2003 remake. The ending is literally a cliffhanger, and the humor is a bit drier. There are elements that clearly "date" the movie, but the Mini Cooper still plays a key role, and the chase sequences are entertaining.
