A Month with the Nikon D600

Posted Wednesday, January 30th, 2013 07:09 pm GMT -5 in Photography at 7:09 PM

It’s been almost a month since I upgraded the work camera from a D80 to a D600. I planned to write a longish review, but there isn’t much to say – this is the best camera I’ve ever used, hands down. The 28-300mm glass and full frame sensor capture great images in almost all light situations with little manual adjustment needed.

I took the camera to Florida to get comfortable using it and found it to be a pleasure to use, especially in low light situations when I had to keep the flash off. You can view samples in this gallery, and strangely enough, the Disney Tourist Blog also published a recent review of the D600.

My plan was to get the battery grip when I ordered from B&H, but it was backordered (and still is now). I loved having that on the D80, but almost feel like the D600 will be too big if I add it now. We’ll see on that piece – maybe later. I would like to try out the wireless mobile adapter, though.

I’m not sold on the video recording aspect of it yet. We needed to record some video for a recent event and I purchased the stereo mic that mounts on the flash shoe. The videos turned out OK, but I found it awkward to shoot video with a DSLR body. Maybe I just need to get used to it (or buy a fixed prime lens), but live view shooting still seems weird and hard to control.

Maybe I can get some tips from my Canon friend…

Life Fitness T3 Treadmill for Sale

Posted Monday, January 28th, 2013 06:34 pm GMT -5 in Running at 6:34 PM

As we prepare to move from a house to a townhouse, I need to get rid of things that won’t fit in the new place. Unfortunately, my trusty training treadmill is one of those things.

We purchased this new from 2nd Wind shortly after moving to the current house (don’t have the exact date, but the owner’s manual is copyright 2001). I’m the only one that’s used it and I’m not sure how many total miles it has, but I really only ran in the winter (and never more than 10K at a time).

All parts are still original (motor, tread) and I never needed to have it serviced. It works great – ran 5 miles on it last night – and I’d be keeping it if I had room in the new place.

I think I paid around $2200 new and saw a similar one on Craigslist for $1100, but that seems high to me. I’d love to get enough to pay for some races this year, so anyone interested at $500? You’ll need a truck and some helpers to transport it from Eagan, Minnesota.

If you are interested (or have questions), please email me at dk@7minutemiles.com.

UPDATE: length – 76.5″, width – 32.5″, height – 55.5″, weight – 255 lbs

UPDATE 2: we have found a new home for it…

Orlando 2013

Posted Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013 11:37 pm GMT -5 in Family,Travel at 11:37 PM

As I sit here to write and look at the forecasted low on Lake Vermilion tonight (-37F), it seems hard to believe it was 121 degrees warmer in Florida during our stay there last week. This was our first family vacation in four years and it was truly wonderful.

A big thank you to my brother Brian and his wife Patti, my parents and my grandfather – there is no way we could have gone on this trip without their generous gifts. Brian and Patti work for Disney and also hosted our stay at their house in Orlando. A shout out to my sister Lynn too for driving some of our stuff down and back so we could avoid extra bag fees (she works at Disney during January break).

Transportation went smoothly and Brian took a few days off to visit with us, which was great. We spent the first day at Hollywood Studios, followed by the Magic Kingdom on Friday and Epcot on Saturday. Brian and I went to the marathon expo that first night and ran the race on Sunday (my carbo load dinner featured pasta in Italy at Via Napoli with our vacation crasher Megan).

Kid two’s big day was Saturday – a very special golden birthday spent in the Florida sun. Speaking of which, the weather was perfect winter vacation weather the whole time (not so great for running, but that was fine). Both kids really enjoyed our day trip to Daytona Beach, where they swam in the Atlantic Ocean for the first time and visited a cool lighthouse.

Brian took the girls to Animal Kingdom and mini golfing on Monday, while I golfed the full-size courses at Streamsong. Our last day was laid back, as the flight home left late in the day. We checked out the hoagies at Wawa and looked at the clearance items in the Disney outlet mall shop before heading back to the airport.

I forgot how great vacations can be for your mental well being – need to start saving now so I don’t wait another four years to do this again…

2013 Walt Disney World Marathon

Posted Sunday, January 20th, 2013 01:14 pm GMT -5 in Friends,Marathons,Running,Travel at 1:14 PM

Marathon number 21 wasn’t my fastest and the weather was way too hot (82F and sunny at the finish), but it might have been the funnest one yet. My friend and running partner Megan ran with me dressed as Minnie Mouse, so I just had to be Mickey, right? It was so fun running through all four parks in costume – my only regret was wearing hot mouse hands for 26.2 miles. Much respect for the cast members that wear full costumes all summer long.

We really didn’t have any time expectations for this race – I had only run long twice since New York, with November and December monthly totals of only 41.9 and 59.3 miles, respectively. Megan hadn’t done any formal marathon training since her 50 miler in September and kept saying she would have to do a lot of walking after mile 17.

Turns out I was the one who wanted to do the walking late in the race. Just like my previous two Disney races, it was sunny and hotter than normal, with high humidity. I was glad to be in a forward corral, which gave us more time to run in the dark. I was hoping to get to the halfway mark before the sun hit us, but that happened just before Animal Kingdom (around mile 11). I wore the gloves for as long as I could stand it, but ended up carrying them for about four miles (and put them back on for the finish).

We saw the family near mile 15 and in Epcot near Spaceship Earth. We looked for my sister near the Contemporary Hotel, but must have run right past her in the dark (sorry Lynn!). My brother ran with his co-worker friend Bob, who we didn’t see until after the race (they started a few corrals back and were trying to break five hours).

The course was new this year, starting in the same spot, but running straight to the Magic Kingdom. Most of the course was similar from there on out, with the addition of a loop around the Richard Petty Driving Experience track and three miles looping around the ESPN Wide World of Sports area. I liked the changes for the most part – give me the same course next time with cooler weather and I’d probably love it.

We saw lots of characters during the race and stopped for a photo with Wreck-It Ralph. I really liked the grave diggers from the Haunted Mansion – that was really clever. The special surprise at mile 20 was cool too – giant puppets on both sides of the road, followed by a big arch with medals from all 20 races (and Mickey, Minnie and Pluto on stage).

Run Disney does such a great job organizing large races like this. The expo was big and crowded, although closing at 7 p.m. with a jam-packed hall was silly and made me feel bad for the smaller vendors. Race day setup with bag drop-off was very smooth and I still think the fireworks are one of the coolest things in the running world. LOVED the misting cooling fans in the finish area, but thought the food in the little box lunches was a little weird.

Now I’ve got Goofy on the mind!

Final results:

Megan and David

  • 5M – 49:14
  • 10M – 1:38:16
  • Half – 2:09:34
  • 20M – 3:25:45

A Visit to Streamsong

Posted Saturday, January 19th, 2013 01:26 pm GMT -5 in Golf,Travel at 1:26 PM

The hype has been building for some time now about Streamsong Resort in central Florida:

Best new courses.

Bandon of the East.

Unlike anything you’ve seen in Florida.

When I saw that the 36-hole resort that opened last month was managed by KemperSports, I pulled some strings with our golf GM and arranged a “tour” of both courses during my recent visit to the Sunshine State.

The resort has Minnesota ties – it is owned by Plymouth-based Mosiac Company, which is a Cargill spinoff that mines phosphate and potash for use in crop nutrients. This site was a reclaimed surface mine in the middle of nowhere, which lends itself to some spectacular vistas free of housing or other development.

Speaking of location, the directions on the web site are mostly accurate, but there are only two small signs leading there and overall I found it a little difficult to find (the fog didn’t help either). I also got lost going back to Orlando, but was able to recover thanks to my phone. It took me just under two hours from Disney World to the clubhouse, which meant going straight to the first tee with no warmup (not good after three months of no golf).

I had a 7:30 a.m. tee time on the Red course, followed by a 1:30 p.m. on the Blue. I was paired with one other northern golfer in the morning and started the afternoon solo, but joined another single from Toronto by the seventh hole. Since I was walking 36 holes the day after a marathon, I decided to take a caddie on both rounds (thanks Jeff!). It’s been a while since I played with a caddie – I wish it were an option at more courses.

The Red course is a Coore/Crenshaw design and is probably the tougher of the two. I forgot the camera in the car for this round, which was a shame, as it was the more photogenic of the two. I did get a few shots later, but some of the holes I missed were spectacular. I played poorly on this course from a longer set of tees than I would normally play, but it was still fun (and I was rusty).

The Blue course is a Tom Doak design and was much more forgiving, with wide open fairways on most holes and lots of room to bail out without being penalized. It has some incredibly scenic holes also, so I don’t want to give the impression it’s not as pretty as the Red. The view from the first tee towards the clubhouse and the beautiful signature seventh hole are two examples. I moved up a tee on this course and shaved 15 strokes off of the morning’s score.

Some additional random notes:

  • I really liked the closing holes on both courses – the Red with the huge sand dunes that looked straight from the moon and the Blue with the great framed view of the clubhouse as you approached the green.
  • The architecture and furnishings of the clubhouse were very pleasing – exactly what you’d expect from a high-end golf resort. Not sure how you accessed the guest rooms located there, but I’m guessing they were nice too.
  • The hotel resort that is being built was quite a long ways from the clubhouse (and most of the golf holes). Not sure why it was designed this way – seems like shuttles to the course would take a long time down the twisty access road.
  • Didn’t have time to visit the practice facilities, so I can’t comment on that.
  • The sand on this course is very fine and took a little getting used to before I could play out of it.
  • The open, rolling tee areas were very unique – nothing quite like it in Minnesota.
  • Saw one very large gator in the clubhouse pond and scared another big one near a bunker that made a huge splash into a nearby lake. Also saw a hawk, a buzzard, several deer and a bunch of wild pigs, plus my caddie warned of several varieties of snakes he’d seen recently.
  • My lunch in the grill was nice – BBQ chicken breast sandwich with sea salt fries at a reasonable price.

I was lucky enough to get an industry rate, but full price here will be an expensive day if you play both courses with a caddie. If you are a bucket list golfer, though, these are two courses you’ll probably want to add along with places like Bandon and Pebble Beach. I haven’t played those courses, but my day at Streamsong was sublime.

Now that I’m old, I’ll keep this review short and quick so I can get to sleep. Four act bill at First Ave for night one of the Current’s two night birthday party: John Mark Nelson, Chastity Brown, Twin Cities Funk and Soul All Stars and the4onthefloor. Special appearances by Fancy Ray and the Eagan dude who lost on the Voice (which I’ve never watched). Other notes:

  • Fun night of entertaining music, all for a very low price.
  • Sold out crowd, including some women who seemed happy to practically dance in my lap.
  • The last set seemed extra loud to me (not that I’m complaining).
  • New music from the 4!
