DK @kingsbury • January 5, 2015

1) Fun reading reports from CES Monday and 2) really wish I was heading to WDW Marathon weekend right about now


DK @kingsbury • January 5, 2015

Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun both in a world of hurt


DK @kingsbury • January 5, 2015

It’s nice to be back at work in the office, but I’d almost rather sleep on the floor than walk out to my car and drive to the cabin


DK @kingsbury • January 6, 2015

Think I just sorted out the whole Outlook vs. iCal vs. Google vs. Fantastical calendar mess on both laptop and iPhone – events for all!

Yosemite works pretty good on my five-year-old laptop and I’m actually liking iTunes more, but most of my time is spent in Chrome, TBH


DK @kingsbury • January 8, 2015

Relieved to finally be off the road – stops in Cloquet, Hinckley and White Bear with great company for most of it


DK @kingsbury • January 8, 2015

Feeling like I just beat The Man – repaired MK’s phone myself with $38 in parts ordered online


DK @kingsbury • January 9, 2015

How have I never been here before today? @ The Freehouse

DK @kingsbury • January 10, 2015

The logo knives are a nice touch @ St. Paul Grill


DK @kingsbury • January 11, 2015

Finally went to the hotel exercise room – 10 miles on the bike kicked my butt


DK @kingsbury • January 11, 2015

As the flakes fall outside, becoming more and more jealous of the people in the runDisney social media feeds today


DK @kingsbury • January 11, 2015

(Pre) birthday pizza for MK @ Carbone’s Pizza on Randolph

DK @kingsbury • January 13, 2015

All day training today and tomorrow on a system that is…interestingly designed

Outdoor games are unique, but I kinda wish they’d just play all of the games at the X


DK @kingsbury • January 17, 2015

Glad the Wild won, but that was an ugly, ugly third period – hope Suter is ready to roll again

DK @kingsbury • January 20, 2015

It’s all about the positivity for me in 2015, but tonight was rough: 1) treadmill 10K, 2) politicians (all) and 3) NHL shootouts


DK @kingsbury • January 20, 2015

Testing out a new security plugin – could a few of you click though to my personal site? 7minutemiles.com


DK @kingsbury • January 20, 2015

It’s a little disheartening to see the breakdown in web server traffic between actual humans vs. crawlers and bots


DK @kingsbury • January 20, 2015

This would be nice if it actually works the way this page says – letsencrypt.org/howitworks

I’m totally digging that one of the top searches for my personal site is “mayor of munchkinland picture”

May be getting old, but I still remember how to use chown, chmod, apachectl, nano and other stupid nerd things without looking them up


DK @kingsbury • January 21, 2015

Very productive evening in the office, followed by 30+ minutes on the bike


DK @kingsbury • January 22, 2015

Today is probably the highest stress/anxiety day of the year at work, but I trust my team


DK @kingsbury • January 22, 2015

That was brutal – I now have big respect for those who do live production (hello @DillonCody)


DK @kingsbury • January 22, 2015

Mystery, rhythmic and random mic interference that just appeared after a week of flawless testing


DK @kingsbury • January 22, 2015

I don’t expect things to go perfectly all the time, but it’s tough when you plan and test and prepare – then boom

These Jujyfruits I left in the car are frozen solid

Hey @rhaeger – passing through your neighborhood (on the way to Indianhead Mountain)


DK @kingsbury • January 23, 2015

This is pretty surreal – power out all around the ski area and surrounding towns


DK @kingsbury • January 23, 2015

Good thing the power is still on in Ironwood (and I remember all the restaurants I liked)


DK @kingsbury • January 23, 2015

Come on Xcel – still no power in the immediate area


DK @kingsbury • January 23, 2015

Took MK to the Ironwood Walmart to use the facilities and the power goes out the second we walk in the door


DK @kingsbury • January 23, 2015

The power has returned and we are all checked in and unpacked – looking forward to the weekend with MK


DK @kingsbury • January 24, 2015

Just like riding a bike


DK @kingsbury • January 24, 2015

I still like the actual skiing part, but what a hassle the rest of it is


DK @kingsbury • January 24, 2015

I thought T-bars were banned in the 90s @ Indianhead Mountain


DK @kingsbury • January 24, 2015

I like the idea of skiing as a way to beat winter, but truthfully, my favorite parts are taking off the damn boots and a hot shower after


DK @kingsbury • January 25, 2015

Day two (before the big crash) @ Blackjack Ski Resort


DK @kingsbury • January 25, 2015

Today in review: couch, Backstrom, Modern Family, Simpsons, laundry and girl scout cookies


DK @kingsbury • February 20, 2015

Not sure what I think about the new TC 1 Mile course – isn’t that basically all uphill?


DK @kingsbury • February 20, 2015

Really not a fan of the whole FSN Plus thing – do advertisers care?


DK @kingsbury • February 20, 2015

Took all day, but finally left the couch and hit the workout room: free weights, sit ups, elliptical and treadmill speedwork

Debating whether or not it’s a smart idea to start a remote Yosemite upgrade at 8pm


DK @kingsbury • February 23, 2015

Under two hours isn’t bad: now running 10.10.2 with PHP 5.5.14 and Apache 2.4.9 (and only one broken plugin so far)


DK @kingsbury • February 23, 2015

Looks like the upgraded PHP on Yosemite doesn’t have PNG support in GD

Good enough for tonight, I guess – off to the balmy 16F and snow flurries on Birch Point


DK @kingsbury • February 24, 2015

DK @kingsbury • February 25, 2015

My head totally wanted to skip it, but the legs were good for five miles on the treadmill (plus sauna)


DK @kingsbury • February 25, 2015

Ten minutes in the sauna made the -13F walk to the car feel almost normal

Hit all four exercise room machines during the Wild game: 5K treadmill (plus hill walk), weights, bike, elliptical

New AWOLNATION album now streaming on iTunes FirstPlay, plus outdoor show at the Cabooze Plaza on July 21

Halfway done @ Carlton Peak


DK @kingsbury • May 16, 2015

That might be the hardest race I’ve ever done


DK @kingsbury • May 16, 2015

Just your typical get up at 3:30am, drive for 2 hours, run a muddy 50K, drive for 4 more hours and see Kids in the Hall live kind of day


DK @kingsbury • May 17, 2015

One spot left in the fall 50 Mile – think I’ll pass 🙂

So long, playoff/trail running beard

Wait, who did Chicago beat in the first round again? Feel the pain, Blackhawks


DK @kingsbury • May 18, 2015

Rain/Snow, Wintry Mix, total snow accumulation and gusts as high as 20 mph are all things I really didn’t want to see in today’s forecast


DK @kingsbury • May 18, 2015

So the Saints will play at CHS Field – don’t think I knew that stood for Cenex Harvest States, a Fortune 100 business (HQ in IGH)

Another half marathon just fell into my lap for this Saturday – hurry up and heal, stupid ankles

Surprised MK tonight – drove down for her Presidential Academic Award ceremony tomorrow before school


DK @kingsbury • May 20, 2015

Very proud of my smart Panther @ Black Hawk Middle School


DK @kingsbury • May 20, 2015

Now everyone in our family has Presidential Academic Awards – two from Obama and two from Reagan


DK @kingsbury • May 20, 2015

Little Red has had quite the workout the past week


DK @kingsbury • May 20, 2015

Tim Hortons sandwich number three – the ham and Swiss

That wine from last night is not my friend today

I’m no marketing expert, but complimentary Mt. Dew, dollar slot dogs and ample free play make me a happy casino guest


DK @kingsbury • May 22, 2015

So nice to run into Brad and Alicia at Mystic tonight


DK @kingsbury • May 22, 2015

Kid taxi, haircut, Zantigo, Tapemark website updates and a bunch of house chores during this fine, fine day

More on the Treasure Island expansion project

Fortune Bay to Mystic Lake…go!


DK @kingsbury • May 23, 2015

Beautiful morning for a race in Stillwater – my shoes have recovered from their muddy potential demise


DK @kingsbury • May 23, 2015

Finished the Stillwater Half in 1:56:26 (and my ankles are not pleased) @ Pioneer Park


DK @kingsbury • May 23, 2015

Buffalo wings and buffalo burgers @ Buffalo Tap


DK @kingsbury • May 23, 2015

Mystic is just showering people with free play this month – saw a $3K hand-pay on a machine I played Thursday


DK @kingsbury • May 23, 2015

Haha, Chicago


DK @kingsbury • May 23, 2015

Damn Blackhawks get the last laugh


DK @kingsbury • May 24, 2015

Donuts, gas, Hank, rain and free play

Turkey butts @ The Summit Golf Club


DK @kingsbury • May 25, 2015

Shot an embarrassingly high score from the whites at The Summit – the hills caught up with me

As someone who studied history for many years in high school and college, reading social media today is just painful

DK @kingsbury • May 28, 2015

Something new – finally crossed this one off the list @ Eveleth Golf Course


DK @kingsbury • May 28, 2015

It was probably too much to expect two winning visits to Hinckley in a row, but at least the rib special is a steal


DK @kingsbury • May 28, 2015

The May $9.99 rib special @ Grand Grill Americana


DK @kingsbury • May 28, 2015

Someday I’d like to win a cash drawing and hit a taxable jackpot, but it doesn’t look like today is that day

DK @kingsbury • May 29, 2015

$100 million for Neverland Ranch and you don’t even get the amusement park rides


DK @kingsbury • May 29, 2015

Nice to sit with the laptop and good headphones while MK swims, but wow is it hot in here


DK @kingsbury • May 30, 2015

Fun visit with @Jakeaune at Mystic Lake – thanks again for breakfast!


DK @kingsbury • May 30, 2015

So far Hall’s Island has been a decent experience – 35W to 94 was the only hassle


DK @kingsbury • May 30, 2015

The hipsters sure do seem to like their smokes still


DK @kingsbury • May 30, 2015

There is some awesome dancing going on here @ Alabama Shakes – Hall’s Island


DK @kingsbury • May 30, 2015

Highly recommended: the Big Ben at Eli’s Bar

Very tough to stay awake on the morning drive, but arrived safely on Lake Vermilion (where the golf course had a frost delay on June 1)

DK @kingsbury • June 1, 2015

I’ve been walking Central Park, singing after dark, people think I’m crazy…

Back editing leadership training videos – really could use a faster laptop


DK @kingsbury • June 3, 2015

Super loud thunder on Birch Point tonight, along with a drenching rain – hope the casino still has power


DK @kingsbury • June 3, 2015

Cabin in the Northland + spring thunderstorm + open windows = amazing


DK @kingsbury • June 3, 2015

Just bought tickets for Kräftskiva – don’t care for crayfish, but love Poliça, Rogue Valley and TBF


DK @kingsbury • June 3, 2015

Looks like a rainy drive ahead on the trek to the Bank


DK @kingsbury • June 3, 2015

It’s almost time @ TCF Bank Stadium


DK @kingsbury • June 3, 2015

Ron Wood holding his cigarette while playing guitar was total rock star


DK @kingsbury • June 3, 2015

Is Keith Richards a White Walker?


DK @kingsbury • June 3, 2015

Beatles or the Rolling Stones? Might need to change my vote


DK @kingsbury • June 4, 2015

I’ll admit it, my eyes were damp when the choir started in on “You Can’t Always Get What You Want”


DK @kingsbury • June 4, 2015

Waiting an hour in the Washington Avenue ramp before starting the car, but then it only took 25 minutes to get home


DK @kingsbury • June 4, 2015

The Thursday matinee is a good time to see a movie when you don’t want other people there – Entourage was better than I expected


DK @kingsbury • June 4, 2015

Picked up SK and took her to lunch at a bar (parent of the year!)


DK @kingsbury • June 4, 2015

Bud Kraehling was a huge part of growing up in the Twin Cities (along with Dave Moore) – RIP


DK @kingsbury • June 4, 2015

Dangerous to have a running store two minutes from my house, but you can’t beat $60 Wave Riders on clearance


DK @kingsbury • June 4, 2015

Committed to my next marathon tonight – see you October 18th in Des Moines


DK @kingsbury • June 4, 2015

Broke in the new shoes with a late 10K on the usual hilly loop in Eagan – saw my first glowbug of the year


DK @kingsbury • June 4, 2015

Didn’t know Des Moines is so small – only 1580 finishers in 2014 (interesting course, though)


DK @kingsbury • June 5, 2015

Aggravating 21 mile bike ride – first the Lebanon trails were closed, then some jerk making an illegal turn yells at *me*


DK @kingsbury • June 5, 2015

Mad Max was completely ridiculous


DK @kingsbury • June 5, 2015

“It’s a great day for Chick-fil-A, how may I serve you”


DK @kingsbury • June 5, 2015

Sitting in the sun next to the Chick-fil-A drive through is highly entertaining


DK @kingsbury • June 5, 2015

It’s kinda like a Letterman skit – “I’d like a deluxe chicken sandwich with no lettuce, no tomato, no cheese and no pickle”


DK @kingsbury • June 5, 2015

Was sad when I found out hockey wasn’t on NBC tonight, but also haven’t watched Jurassic Park in ages


DK @kingsbury • June 5, 2015

Looks like Crumb Deli is opening an Eagan location just down from the running store


DK @kingsbury • June 5, 2015

Ugh, somebody has been using fake debit cards with my number – this is going to be a pain


DK @kingsbury • June 6, 2015

More great service from @WingsFinancial – fraudulent charges disputed, new card issued, should have zero liability


DK @kingsbury • June 6, 2015

Now I just have a ton of vendors to contact with the new account number (and I missed out on golf this morning)


DK @kingsbury • June 6, 2015

Eagan could really use a Zantigo


DK @kingsbury • June 6, 2015

It’s convenient and all, but way too many people have access to my credit card number – about halfway done updating


DK @kingsbury • June 6, 2015

Places the fraudster(s) visited: Wendy’s, Sears, Home Depot, Green Way Liquor, Sunglass Hut, Panda Express, Noodles, ExxonMobil & Lids


DK @kingsbury • June 6, 2015

Probably not a good idea to be drinking Scotch at Southview when there is Tapemark coding to finish


DK @kingsbury • June 7, 2015

Sometimes it takes longer than expected to figure out, but when code finally works, it’s like a little miracle


DK @kingsbury • June 7, 2015

Warm, slow 10K on my usual Eagan loop (but in the opposite direction)


DK @kingsbury • June 7, 2015

“Try the Walleye” @ Tavern on Grand

Are all the Minnesota carcass collectors on strike? Rough weekend to be a deer on I-35


DK @kingsbury • June 8, 2015

Today I learned that the “B&H” in B&H Photo Video stands for Blimie and Herman


DK @kingsbury • June 8, 2015

I don’t really know any of the Tampa players, but they sure look good against Chicago

Did Apple Sherlock Relo?


DK @kingsbury • June 9, 2015

Sunshine and thunderstorms on tonight’s run @ Lake Vermilion


DK @kingsbury • June 9, 2015

Is sports betting gambling’s last frontier?


DK @kingsbury • June 11, 2015

So much change in the Minneapolis tech scene – first Code42, now JAMF


DK @kingsbury • June 11, 2015

Just had a kernel panic on a Mac mini – can’t remember the last time that happened


DK @kingsbury • June 11, 2015

I’m not sure what will give me a heart attack first – progressive jackpot slot machines or the Tapemark web site


DK @kingsbury • June 12, 2015

The first men’s teams are on the tee at the 2015 Tapemark Charity Pro-Am at Southview CC – here we go


DK @kingsbury • June 12, 2015

The morning 18 hole scores are rolling in as the afternoon groups start to tee off at the 2015 Tapemark – perfect weather so far


DK @kingsbury • June 12, 2015

It’s only day two of my self-imposed banishment from Coke and Mt. Dew and I’m already about to fall off the wagon


DK @kingsbury • June 12, 2015

Don Berry and Derek Chang are your pro clubhouse leaders from the morning session, both shooting 66 (-5)


DK @kingsbury • June 12, 2015

Just a perfect weather day at the Tapemark @ Southview CC


DK @kingsbury • June 12, 2015

All Friday scores entered at the Tapemark – first tee time tomorrow at 6:30am


DK @kingsbury • June 13, 2015

It wouldn’t be the Tapemark without a few raindrops – Saturday play has started at Southview Country Club


DK @kingsbury • June 13, 2015

Not sure why I think it’s a good idea to work on code enhancements to the production system during the tournament, but there it is


DK @kingsbury • June 13, 2015

The morning 18 hole scorecards are about halfway done – afternoon rounds have started (and the rain has finally stopped)


DK @kingsbury • June 13, 2015

No Masters tickets for me (again)


DK @kingsbury • June 13, 2015

DK @kingsbury • June 13, 2015

It’s crunch time at the Tapemark – hey, what’s the cut?


DK @kingsbury • June 13, 2015

Think I have everything ready for Sunday – tapemarkgolf.org

Welcome to Championship Sunday at the 2015 @tapemarkgolf – first group teeing off now


DK @kingsbury • June 14, 2015

B52 Slider Squad food truck @ Southview CC

Just rediscovered the joy of slicing images and exporting an HTML table from Photoshop CC 2015 – used to use ImageReady for that, no?


DK @kingsbury • June 18, 2015

The afternoon “featured” group is playing just brutal golf, but I can’t turn away


DK @kingsbury • June 18, 2015

Too many bugs outside, so I switched to a late five mile treadmill slog

Never knew there were so many Cubs fans in Minneapolis

I’m not much of a baseball fan (don’t know a single Cubs player), but I did get rib tips, a steak sandwich and a bottle of Killebrew


DK @kingsbury • June 21, 2015

An early morning Father’s Day 13 miler along Nokomis, Minnehaha and Harriet before it gets really hot

Internet service is wonky this morning in the Northland, but what’s this about U.S. Consulates can’t issue visas due a system breakdown?


DK @kingsbury • June 22, 2015

All sorts of weird tech issues today – and now the power just flickered


DK @kingsbury • June 22, 2015

Still pondering an upgrade of Lapzilla to a 1TB SSD for $375 or saving for a 15-inch rMBP


DK @kingsbury • June 24, 2015

Wonder how much it costs to sponsor the MN State Open, the MN Wild, the MN Twins and the St. Paul Saints all at the same time


DK @kingsbury • June 24, 2015

Congrats to the whole team at Saint Dinette – looking forward to visiting soon

Blues Traveler at Running Aces? That’s kinda interesting


DK @kingsbury • June 26, 2015

Probably a good idea I’m not doing the Lutsen 99er tomorrow – just finished a Lebanon Hills 6er that kicked my ass


DK @kingsbury • June 26, 2015

Such a crazy Friday – bike ride, haircut, wonderful lunch with Mark, MK doctor, dinner at Corner Table and MMJ at Northrup


DK @kingsbury • June 26, 2015

Dr. John visits Jazz Fest @ CHS Field


DK @kingsbury • June 27, 2015

Followed our first visit to CHS Field with a quick stop at Heartland’s burger bar – Grandview tonight with Studio Phil


DK @kingsbury • June 27, 2015

What a trip – get up to leave Heartland and Dr. John was right behind me


DK @kingsbury • June 27, 2015

Xanadu on The Current 🎶❤️


DK @kingsbury • June 28, 2015

Somehow survived a 60 mile bike ride with Megan (and avoided the rain), then had my car battery die while I was driving home


DK @kingsbury • June 29, 2015

Had hoped to avoid the Honda maintenance department, but here we are


DK @kingsbury • July 1, 2015

Saw five spiders in the cabin this morning – just what exactly are they catching to eat? Don’t think I want to know…


DK @kingsbury • July 1, 2015

Nice top 10 finish for Tapemark champion Ryan Helminen at the PGA


DK @kingsbury • July 1, 2015

A fiber line was cut along Hwy 135, dropping phone service around Tower – not good for ATMs, progressive slot machines and call centers


DK @kingsbury • July 1, 2015

Must. Buy. This.


DK @kingsbury • July 2, 2015

I guess the bugs don’t like 5am either – step 1 complete (10K on Birch Point) with 3 deer, 2 loon calls and very few flying pests


DK @kingsbury • July 2, 2015

Work inbox down to 70 with lots of waiting for replies now


DK @kingsbury • July 2, 2015

The Vermilion Burger – one of my all-time favorites @ Bay View Lodge


DK @kingsbury • July 2, 2015

1919 on the patio @ Buffalo Tap


DK @kingsbury • July 3, 2015

Sometimes junk mail is like hidden treasure – a postcard I almost recycled saved me $126 on the car repair


DK @kingsbury • July 3, 2015

The new trail feature at Lebanon (just after the big hill) is really nice


DK @kingsbury • July 3, 2015

Volunteering isn’t quite the same as running @ Afton State Park


DK @kingsbury • July 5, 2015

Bravo to the pyro on Bone Lake who set off the 20 minute private mortar show – the Alan Parsons Project Sirius intro was a nice touch


DK @kingsbury • July 5, 2015

Funny how the 60 mile bike ride didn’t really make the 15 mile run any easier – Minnehaha, Harriet & Calhoun


DK @kingsbury • July 5, 2015

How did I not know about a Christopher Guest series set in the UK with the guy from The IT Crowd?


DK @kingsbury • July 6, 2015

Jonathan Ive has more than 5,000 patents? Now I really feel like a slacker

It’s the 7th day of the 7th month – “the stars twinkle on the gold and silver grains of sand”

Very, very proud of kid one, who scored a perfect 5/5 on her AP writing test


DK @kingsbury • July 8, 2015

I can’t believe I’d never seen the Kip and LaFawnduh wedding scene until tonight

Never sure if late night writing is a good thing, but there it is

On our way…


DK @kingsbury • July 11, 2015

Pre-concert pit stop @ The Duluth Grill


DK @kingsbury • July 11, 2015

Bayfront Park is a great venue, but who knew Duluth could feel so hot?


DK @kingsbury • July 11, 2015

Quite liked The Lowest Pair @ Bayfront Festival Park


DK @kingsbury • July 11, 2015

Sad that Jason Isbell and Wilco were same night as TbT, but what can you do


DK @kingsbury • July 11, 2015

Concert crashers – the very large Indiana Harbor @ Bayfront Festival Park


DK @kingsbury • July 11, 2015

I’d really like to hear John Mark Nelson cover a Paul Simon song


DK @kingsbury • July 12, 2015

This kid is going to give me a heart attack @ Gooseberry Falls


DK @kingsbury • July 12, 2015

I thought it was hot on the North Shore, but then I opened the air conditioned car and stepped into the metro sauna


DK @kingsbury • July 13, 2015

4:30am, have to drive again and there is a new warning light on in the car – at least the storms have past


DK @kingsbury • July 13, 2015

Quick nine holes on the back before continuing to Hinckley @ Black Bear Golf Club


DK @kingsbury • July 13, 2015

I really hope the front nine at Black Bear is more open than the back – not exactly an amateur/resort friendly design


DK @kingsbury • July 13, 2015

Shot a 44 from the whites on the tight back nine at Black Bear, which included a birdie/par start and more than a few lost balls


DK @kingsbury • July 14, 2015

Last time I played here in 1996, shot my highest score ever (117) @ Hinckley Grand National Golf Couese


DK @kingsbury • July 14, 2015

19 years later and 33 strokes lower – shot an 84 from the whites at Grand National


DK @kingsbury • July 15, 2015

Early 3.6 miles with Jenn before a day full of seminars


DK @kingsbury • July 15, 2015

Nothing quite like starting your day with a one hour presentation from the IRS


DK @kingsbury • July 15, 2015

So nice to see Mel today – such a great GM (and person)


DK @kingsbury • July 16, 2015

A humid four miles with Jenn around Hinckley – no bunnies in sight


DK @kingsbury • July 16, 2015

Can’t even begin to express how happy I am that the little yellow light on the dash turned off


DK @kingsbury • July 16, 2015

Kinda hate to admit this publicly, but Candy Crush level 1000 was really cool


DK @kingsbury • July 16, 2015

Heading out for a late Restaurant Week dinner at the new IL Foro


DK @kingsbury • July 16, 2015

Pictures don’t do this room justice @ Il Foro


DK @kingsbury • July 16, 2015

Big thumbs up to any restaurant willing to play “Darling Nikki”


DK @kingsbury • July 17, 2015

Really planned to have a lazy, sleep-in kind of day, but it’s been surprisingly productive so far


DK @kingsbury • July 17, 2015

Happy birthday, Disneyland – such a huge part of my childhood and still my favorite


DK @kingsbury • July 17, 2015

Funny how I can watch free streaming HD of the Open with no ads, but still can’t view Wild or Twins games without paying


DK @kingsbury • July 17, 2015

My expectations were low, but I liked the Minions movie – Bob is the best


DK @kingsbury • July 17, 2015

You have to admit, “El Chapo” is a pretty badass nickname – maybe they should call Lucky Day, Dusty Bottoms and little Ned Nederlander


DK @kingsbury • July 18, 2015

Hot and hilly 10K around Eagan before heading to MK’s swim meet in Farmington


DK @kingsbury • July 18, 2015

Might lose five pounds of water weight sitting in this swim meet sauna. Also, is wifi and LTE just plain crappy everywhere?


DK @kingsbury • July 18, 2015

This phone is too expensive to have a crap battery, poor data connectivity and this many dropped calls – do I really need one?


DK @kingsbury • July 18, 2015

Maybe it’s just all these swim parents that have me in a bad mood


DK @kingsbury • July 18, 2015

Only The Current would play all the tracks from Wilco’s Star Wars – love it


DK @kingsbury • July 18, 2015

Just who the hell is on the Caesars board?


DK @kingsbury • July 18, 2015

About the Seven Corners Hardware spot in St. Paul: shockingly different now


DK @kingsbury • July 18, 2015

Chocolate Bombolino, Mr. Bob Bombolino


DK @kingsbury • July 19, 2015

Slow and sunny 13 mile run/walk around Eagan – all the south Metro bunnies must be on vacation


DK @kingsbury • July 20, 2015

Out the door before four and the dumb engine light is on again


DK @kingsbury • July 20, 2015

Two new things on today’s drive: live audio stream of The Open and hand weight exercises


DK @kingsbury • July 20, 2015

Days are *much* longer when you start at 3:30 – should have no problem sleeping tonight


DK @kingsbury • July 21, 2015

Wonder why the AWOLNATION show moved from Cabooze Plaza to Myth – not exactly an upgrade


DK @kingsbury • July 21, 2015

A $1 trillion valuation? Mr. Burns would approve


DK @kingsbury • July 21, 2015

Does MGM (and myVegas) not care that Mitch Garber is now also chairman of Cirque du Soleil? How does he possibly have time?


DK @kingsbury • July 21, 2015

Quick four-miler on Birch Point with one eight point buck, one doe and surprisingly few bugs

DK @kingsbury • July 23, 2015

Just about time to hit the road for Veruca Salt at the Cedar

This Veruca Salt show is by far the loudest of any I’ve seen at the Cedar – rock on


DK @kingsbury • July 23, 2015

What a perfect summer night in Minneapolis


DK @kingsbury • July 24, 2015

Warm 26 mile bike exploration around Eagan, the river & Lebanon Hills – you really can’t get there from here


DK @kingsbury • July 24, 2015

Twins Territory is filled with pinstripes @ Target Field


DK @kingsbury • July 24, 2015

So not only was A-Rod suspended for 164 games, he was sued by his defense attorneys for non-payment?


DK @kingsbury • July 24, 2015

The zipper merge just doesn’t work in Minnesota


DK @kingsbury • July 25, 2015

Don’t say this often – “even par through three” @ The Summit Golf Club


DK @kingsbury • July 25, 2015

May Ribfest return every year from now on @ Mystic Lake Casino


DK @kingsbury • July 25, 2015

Played the entire round with one golf ball, but still shot 90 from the white tees at Summit Golf Club


DK @kingsbury • July 25, 2015

Didn’t see anything in the news about the fireworks shell that misfired last night at the Twins game – everyone OK?


DK @kingsbury • July 25, 2015

Saturday night lakes run with Megan and her headlamp – 9.5 miles around Harriet, Calhoun and Isles


DK @kingsbury • July 26, 2015

Not entirely sure this is really A Flock of Seagulls @ Mystic Lake Casino


DK @kingsbury • July 26, 2015

Bravo Flock of Seagull – opened *and* closed with “I Ran”


DK @kingsbury • July 26, 2015

If I get to go to G2E this year, I pledge to get flame tattoos just like Chester Bennington (if the circumstances are right)


DK @kingsbury • July 27, 2015

Per ICANN, 7minutemiles.com was created 2002-11-26T19:08:46Z – it’s almost a teenager


DK @kingsbury • July 27, 2015

Feel bad for the staff, but I never liked the Wits concept (or execution)


DK @kingsbury • July 27, 2015

Gordy and his wife Marilyn winter in Siesta Key – “to get away from the hamburgers”


DK @kingsbury • July 28, 2015

Tim Hortons next to the Y Store just sold me an excellent sandwich, quickly, for a good price – stop in and check them out


DK @kingsbury • July 29, 2015

Late exercise room visit with kid two – got in some fairly successful treadmill speed work (even got back to BQ pace)


DK @kingsbury • July 29, 2015

Trying out a 6 Plus as a potential new work phone this week – should be an interesting experiment


DK @kingsbury • July 30, 2015

Beautiful morning at Interlachen for the Dunkers breakfast

Perfect summer night for baseball @ Target Field

DK @kingsbury • August 2, 2015

And then it will be time for the State Fair – summer’s over, people


DK @kingsbury • August 3, 2015

Holy back pain, Robin

Guess I missed Kenny Perry’s second round at TPC: aced the fourth, 29 on the front nine, 61 total (-11)


DK @kingsbury • August 3, 2015

Hard to believe the only places you can now fly (commercially) from Duluth are MSP and Chicago

DK @kingsbury • August 4, 2015

Remote server upgrade night – let’s hope all the Vegas gremlins are out of town


DK @kingsbury • August 4, 2015

There really is only one appropriate soundtrack for server maintenance – JB & KG


DK @kingsbury • August 4, 2015

My last remote server upgrade didn’t take this long, but it’s still pinging, so I guess I’ll keep waiting


DK @kingsbury • August 4, 2015

Not nearly as smooth a process as the last server upgrade, but I’m glad my old brain can still recall the right troubleshooting steps

Nice interview, @ChipPearson (part 1 & part 2)

These U.S. Am semi-finalists are all over the place

Finally back at it – a quick(ish) treadmill 5K and some weights before BÖC at Mystic Lake


DK @kingsbury • August 22, 2015

BÖC moved indoors – second row for free (!) @ Mystic Lake Casino


DK @kingsbury • August 22, 2015

These guys still put on a great show @ Mystic Lake

Off to check on construction at Fond-du-Luth, followed by drawings at Hinckley


DK @kingsbury • August 27, 2015

The temporary entrance made me laugh a little


DK @kingsbury • August 27, 2015

Half of Fond-du-Luth closed (the soon-to-be non-smoking first floor)


DK @kingsbury • August 27, 2015

The smoky upstairs looks mostly finished and is a nice improvement over the old design, IMO


DK @kingsbury • August 27, 2015

Grand Hinckley’s success is interesting to me: close to an Interstate, but few people live close by

So proud of my friend and training partner @MeganSteil who is doing her first full Ironman this weekend in Canada – Go Megan Go!

Today started out strong, then I got knocked out for a few hours – still heading to the @4otf show at Harriet, though


DK @kingsbury • August 28, 2015

The old Accord completely collapsed in the garage (blocking traffic), so looks like no 4otf while we wait for the tow truck


DK @kingsbury • August 28, 2015

Don’t like paying the bill, but tow truck drivers are like wizards of physics

Another hot treadmill 10K, this time while watching the Twins (and that umpire) nearly give me a heart attack


DK @kingsbury • September 1, 2015

Sounds like there is a very large owl outside the cabin tonight

DK @kingsbury • September 3, 2015

First visit and Chef Dan isn’t even here @ BoomTown Woodfire

Alt-J has quite the production @ Roy Wilkins Auditorium

Also, trail riding a week before the marathon was probably not one of my brighter ideas


DK @kingsbury • October 11, 2015

It’s currently 84F on the deck @ Psycho Suzi’s Motor Lounge


DK @kingsbury • October 11, 2015

Lots of great data in this casino/millennial story

Fascinating numbers from Danny Meyer

The new third lane on 169 at the Canterbury exit is really nice – no more merging


DK @kingsbury • October 16, 2015

Finally some time to sit down, listen to some music and catch up on my laptop tasks


DK @kingsbury • October 16, 2015

Today was my iPhone upgrade eligibility day, but I’m trying to show some fiscal restraint and wait a few weeks


DK @kingsbury • October 16, 2015

Des Moines forecast for Sunday looks OK: low 40s at the start, sunny, winds picking up as the day goes on, high of 69F


DK @kingsbury • October 17, 2015

Hello Iowa

The “Dead Moines” burger @ Zombie Burger + Drink Lab

Switching to a warmer blue hat because 35F is a little brisk

I really need to lose some weight if I plan to keep doing these things – Des Moines Marathon in 4:37

Number 25 is in the books


DK @kingsbury • October 19, 2015

I’m really quite amazed the FAA allowed this new aircraft viewing area at MSP

DK @kingsbury • October 20, 2015

I don’t read many “real” books these days, but really want to pick up Gilliamesque and Fast Girl soon

The new beds and comforters at Fortune Bay are the perfect post-marathon recovery tools – so relaxing

DK @kingsbury • October 22, 2015

Do you believe in miracles? @ Xcel Energy Center


DK @kingsbury • October 22, 2015

Very impressive wireless speeds in the Xcel suites this year


DK @kingsbury • October 22, 2015

The Treasure Island suite at Xcel is right at center ice (directly across from the owner’s suite)


DK @kingsbury • October 22, 2015

Aside from the volume initially being too loud, the fan experience in the suites tonight was excellent – blue cheese dip rocks, BTW


DK @kingsbury • October 23, 2015

Lunch with Mark at the Eagan BWW was extra fun today


DK @kingsbury • October 23, 2015

Good luck to all of the Surf the Murph runners tomorrow

Scott Porter of Orlando is my hero – ran the KC marathon Saturday in 3:09:19 and the Des Moines marathon Sunday in 3:07:32


DK @kingsbury • October 24, 2015

That’s an overall pace of 7:11 and good for first place in the 2015 I-35 Challenge. Oh yeah, he is also reportedly *57* years old


DK @kingsbury • October 24, 2015

Really need to lay off the Mt. Dew after 10pm

Last Saturday practice of the season for the freshman fish


DK @kingsbury • October 24, 2015

DK @kingsbury • October 24, 2015

Felt like I played much better than the final score – 92 from the whites at Willingers


DK @kingsbury • October 24, 2015

Also found an old Strata “Professional Balata” ball and used it to chip in for birdie on 14


DK @kingsbury • October 24, 2015

Watched Bottle Rocket, the first Wes Anderson movie, and couldn’t get over how much Owen Wilson looked like my high school classmate ES


DK @kingsbury • October 24, 2015

My tickets are in the drum @ Mystic Lake Casino


DK @kingsbury • October 25, 2015

Looking forward to seeing Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear tonight at the Cedar

Wow – the Illinois Lottery isn’t paying prizes bigger than $600 to winners due to a state budget standoff


DK @kingsbury • October 26, 2015

Toast is still a thing?


DK @kingsbury • October 26, 2015

Rained most of the drive up this morning, then skies cleared and the temps fell (24F at the Y Store)


DK @kingsbury • October 27, 2015

Between daily buffets and this, I should easily lose 20 pounds right away


DK @kingsbury • October 27, 2015

This figure-8 ferris wheel thing in Macau is unreal


DK @kingsbury • October 27, 2015

Feeling very sorry for the broadcast techs tonight

And that’s a wrap! Thanks for everything @FortuneBay


DK @kingsbury • October 28, 2015

Kinda funny I had to drive south to start seeing snowflakes


DK @kingsbury • October 28, 2015

Safely back from my last Northwoods commute – heading to Leon Bridges at First Ave tonight


DK @kingsbury • October 28, 2015

First time back at First Ave since the roof collapse – looks nice and kinda smells like Tao in Vegas


DK @kingsbury • October 28, 2015

He sounds great tonight @ First Avenue & 7th St Entry


DK @kingsbury • October 29, 2015

Eagan will never be world-class until someone opens a Zantigo


DK @kingsbury • October 29, 2015

Great first run with @WeRunMPLS – 3 miles around the North Loop, then drinks at Fulton Beer


DK @kingsbury • October 29, 2015

Today also turned out to be phone upgrade day – thanks to @pashcam and his team for helping find “My Precious”


DK @kingsbury • October 30, 2015

Pumpkins acquired, Smashburger lunch with Mr. Miller, dangerous Halloween sale at the Electric Fetus and packing for the cabin


DK @kingsbury • October 30, 2015

The new camper cabins at Whitetail Woods Regional park are very nice


DK @kingsbury • October 30, 2015

Returned to civilization briefly to find… @ Ground Round, Farmington MN


DK @kingsbury • November 1, 2015

This November weather is A-OK with me – hilly 10K around Eagan after another Vikings W


DK @kingsbury • November 2, 2015

Day one morning commute = 23 minutes


DK @kingsbury • November 2, 2015

It was so awesome to attend a Monday night school concert in what seems like forever


DK @kingsbury • November 3, 2015

Looks like helmet hair is now a part of my life


DK @kingsbury • November 3, 2015

Voter 713


DK @kingsbury • November 3, 2015

With this weather, probably should’ve ran outside in the dark, but decided to hit the exercise room circuit instead


DK @kingsbury • November 3, 2015

Safety training at 6:45am sharp – better go to sleep earlier tonight


DK @kingsbury • November 4, 2015

Is Ellie Goulding big enough to have an arena tour?


DK @kingsbury • November 4, 2015

There is just no easy way out of Minneapolis at 5:30 on a weeknight


DK @kingsbury • November 4, 2015

Dang, my home Comcast connection just tested out at 120 Mbps down – best ever


DK @kingsbury • November 4, 2015

I will give treadmills credit for one thing – they do make tracking speed work a lot easier


DK @kingsbury • November 4, 2015

My run log started in 2008 with entries like “Redondo to Manhattan Beach” and is closing in on 7000 total miles – fun times 🙂


DK @kingsbury • November 5, 2015

Pregame warm-ups with the Preds @ Xcel Energy Center


DK @kingsbury • November 6, 2015

No pics, but the lunch menu at Sea Change is awesome – had the Cobb salad today and can’t wait to go back


DK @kingsbury • November 7, 2015

Bought a new work wardrobe and didn’t even have to leave Eagan #worldclass


DK @kingsbury • November 7, 2015

Absolutely beautiful day for a run with Megan in Minneapolis – 10 miles along Minnehaha Parkway & around Lake Harriet


DK @kingsbury • November 8, 2015

Finally watched the South Park Yelp episode – oh, man


DK @kingsbury • November 9, 2015

It makes me very happy knowing just how much purple I can get away with wearing at my new job


DK @kingsbury • November 9, 2015

Welcome back, Mary Lucia – evening commute instantly better


DK @kingsbury • November 9, 2015

Bond, James Bond – so nice to have a Monday family movie night at an actual theater


DK @kingsbury • November 9, 2015

Broke in the new Wave Rider 19s with a late treadmill 5K – they feel great @KateReallyLives & @joey_camp


DK @kingsbury • November 10, 2015

First ever visit to the Eagan YMCA – roughly 5K on the track (“only” 11 laps per mile, ugh), some free weights and a StairMaster with TV


DK @kingsbury • November 11, 2015

Downtown East could seriously use some additional food options


DK @kingsbury • November 11, 2015

Way to go, Minnesota weather – November thunder is very dramatic and cool


DK @kingsbury • November 11, 2015

This running every day thing is exhausting – clubhouse treadmill 5K, weights and sit-ups


DK @kingsbury • November 12, 2015

Tickets acquired for Babes in Toyland @ First Avenue


DK @kingsbury • November 12, 2015

Another fun @WeRunMPLS jaunt around a chilly Mississippi River loop, followed by tots and cider at Bulldog NE


DK @kingsbury • November 12, 2015

Hey @rstanzel – is there anyone in town who doesn’t know you? @KaitCox had nothing but good things to say 🙂


DK @kingsbury • November 13, 2015

Treasure Island let me in to the Tradewinds Buffet tonight – let’s see what they got


DK @kingsbury • November 13, 2015

Biggest win tonight was gas at Dakota Station for $2.07 a gallon


DK @kingsbury • November 14, 2015

A little brisk for the Jingle Bell Run for Arthritis at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds


DK @kingsbury • November 14, 2015

Ran a 23:21, but I’m pretty sure that course was short of 5K


DK @kingsbury • November 14, 2015

Forty years of awesomeness – the #1 @ Keys Cafe


DK @kingsbury • November 14, 2015

Well, since the Turf Club and Entry shows are sold out, we are headed to the Mainroom for Poliça


DK @kingsbury • November 14, 2015

Starwood bought the SLS Las Vegas and is turning one of the towers into a W? How did I miss that news…


DK @kingsbury • November 14, 2015

Watching Moonraker on Hulu – can’t believe I was ten when I first saw this at the Highland (or was it the Grandview?)


DK @kingsbury • November 15, 2015

Ran 9+ miles around Harriet, Calhoun and Isles on what just might be the best November 15th in Minnesota history


DK @kingsbury • November 15, 2015

Thanks to @PatrickTalty (and family) for hosting the Vikings viewing party today – Skol to another W!


DK @kingsbury • November 16, 2015

The Mercedes drawing at Little Six last night: wall-to-wall people, no open machines, didn’t win the car, spent zero dollars


DK @kingsbury • November 16, 2015

A case of the Mondays – introduced SK and MK to Office Space tonight


DK @kingsbury • November 17, 2015

I don’t know anything about the science of traffic flow, but I wonder what would happen if more people had manual transmissions


DK @kingsbury • November 17, 2015

Much later than I planned – treadmill 5K at the clubhouse with some weights and a little bit of rowing for something new


DK @kingsbury • November 18, 2015

First time in two and a half weeks I got to use fifth gear for any significant portion of the morning commute


DK @kingsbury • November 18, 2015

Personal top five soup (egg drop) @ Kim’s Chow Mein

DK @kingsbury • November 19, 2015

Fun first office happy hour at Brit’s Pub, followed by a stop at IKEA to pick up meatballs for tomorrow’s potluck


DK @kingsbury • November 19, 2015

Life beyond the treadmill – brisk walk to the clubhouse for 50 minutes on the seated elliptical (plus weights and sit-ups)


DK @kingsbury • November 20, 2015

Easily the best south of the river morning commute so far – where is everybody?


DK @kingsbury • November 21, 2015

Filled up Little Red (it was three cents cheaper with my SA card too)


DK @kingsbury • November 22, 2015

These Coldplay monkeys really need to tour – with or without Chris Martin


DK @kingsbury • November 22, 2015

Quick treadmill speedwork session before Hunger Games with CK, Vikings-Packers and dinner with SK at Salt Cellar

The more I listen to this Arcs album, the more excited I get for next week


DK @kingsbury • November 23, 2015

Chick-fil-A, MK swim practice, MNF from the treadmill, core work and some miscellaneous housekeeping


DK @kingsbury • November 24, 2015

The price tag on the new Detroit Red Wings arena is now up to $627 million – that’s a lot of octopi


DK @kingsbury • November 24, 2015

44 laps at the Eagan Y, followed by free weights and 500 painful steps on the StairMaster


DK @kingsbury • November 24, 2015

Didn’t see season one, but this current season of Fargo is just so, so good


DK @kingsbury • November 25, 2015

Convinced the Bear Gerhardt character in Fargo is really a moonlighting @Chrinkles


DK @kingsbury • November 25, 2015

I love the flow of saying Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom


DK @kingsbury • November 25, 2015

Reviewing the current state of Office 365 Business Premium – Amazon sells seats for $97/year, which seems like a good deal, no?


DK @kingsbury • November 25, 2015

Fake Friday office lunch – bison burger @ The Lowry


DK @kingsbury • November 25, 2015

Big thumbs up on @NighthawksMpls – great dinner tonight plus we got one of the 74 Thanksgiving pies


DK @kingsbury • November 26, 2015

Annual breakfast at Perkins with the in-laws and I’m pretty sure I’m already at maximum daily calories


DK @kingsbury • November 26, 2015

Grandpa Favre


DK @kingsbury • November 27, 2015

I think my scale is broken – says I weigh less today compared to yesterday


DK @kingsbury • November 27, 2015

55 laps around the Eagan Y track before heading out to @mysticlake for some Black Friday Bingo


DK @kingsbury • November 27, 2015

A little pre-bingo wild rice soup @ Minnehaha Cafe


DK @kingsbury • November 27, 2015

No bingos + Sumatran Storm is still my nemesis (the lower progressive was ~$3400, @thepeterherem & @5781niffy)


DK @kingsbury • November 28, 2015

When did Wisconsin interstates go to 70mph? Also, kudos to the two guys on the fishing boat on the St. Croix – brr


DK @kingsbury • November 28, 2015

Donut Run prep complete: sit-ups, free weights, rowing, biking and a little Machiavelli


DK @kingsbury • November 29, 2015

So. Many. Donuts. Almost ten miles + 4 donut stops @ Mill City Running


DK @kingsbury • December 1, 2015

You would think the USGA would want to encourage *any* round played these days – alone or “peer-reviewed”


DK @kingsbury • December 1, 2015

Worldwide concert revenue in 2014 was $20.5 billion according to PWC – feels like our family was 1 or 2 percent of that


DK @kingsbury • December 1, 2015

Funny how The Current played a “clean” version of Gett Off and they only changed two words (and one was “wet”)


DK @kingsbury • December 1, 2015

Concert week begins: The Arcs tonight, Richard Thompson tomorrow, Dr. Ralph Stanley Friday (plus potentially a few more)


DK @kingsbury • December 2, 2015

The new Delta Sky 360 Club deal also extends the official team airline agreement through 2021


DK @kingsbury • December 2, 2015

So conflicted about this Richard Thompson show – might have to stay up and write the post right now


DK @kingsbury • December 3, 2015

Surprised to see that only 33% of Minneapolis residents are married


DK @kingsbury • December 3, 2015

Kid two adjusting to freshman life just fine: 3.957 GPA and currently 50th out of a class of 619 🎉💯


DK @kingsbury • December 3, 2015

Walked across the street at lunch today – quite a bit of progress since my last visit


DK @kingsbury • December 3, 2015

No photographic proof, but 3+ chilly @WeRunMPLS miles around Lake Calhoun with Jen before Punch Pizza and @ColorTab at the U


DK @kingsbury • December 3, 2015

Pictures totally allowed at the Whole Music Club


DK @kingsbury • December 4, 2015

Ralph Stanley is hiding behind the piano before his Cedar show and keeps giving me the evil eye


DK @kingsbury • December 4, 2015

Ladies and Gentlemen, Dr. Ralph Stanley @ The Cedar Cultural Center


DK @kingsbury • December 5, 2015

The #4 @ Grand Shanghai


DK @kingsbury • December 5, 2015

Four nights of concerts apparently caused a little sleep deprivation – fell asleep on the couch for about three hours this afternoon


DK @kingsbury • December 6, 2015

Very pleasant (and almost snow-free) outdoor December run in Minnesota – 8.5 hilly miles around Eagan


DK @kingsbury • December 6, 2015

Closing out my week of music with a Trailer Trash matinee at the Cedar and AWOLNATION at the Myth tonight


DK @kingsbury • December 6, 2015

Lions, Vikings and Bears, oh my


DK @kingsbury • December 6, 2015

The Struts are really something @ Myth


DK @kingsbury • December 6, 2015

AWOLNATION is one hard band to photograph @ Myth


DK @kingsbury • December 7, 2015

Landed safely at SFO – thanks @Delta


DK @kingsbury • December 7, 2015

Not shown: the Cisco DJ (no joke) @ San Francisco Marriott Marquis


DK @kingsbury • December 7, 2015

Hard to believe it’s been seven years since I was last in this city


DK @kingsbury • December 7, 2015

Maybe I’m doing it wrong, but the Surface Pro 4 is not my optimal travel machine so far


DK @kingsbury • December 7, 2015

I think the secret is out on TSA Pre✓


DK @kingsbury • December 8, 2015

Just like old times @ San Francisco Marriott Marquis


DK @kingsbury • December 8, 2015

Just realized I may be the only person at this keynote wearing a tie


DK @kingsbury • December 8, 2015

Now realized I’m one of the only people in all of downtown San Francisco wearing a tie


DK @kingsbury • December 8, 2015

I’m a total newbie to this world, but I think Cisco introduced Slack Pro today


DK @kingsbury • December 8, 2015

The 19 month prosciutto @ Trou Normand


DK @kingsbury • December 8, 2015

This calvado drink at Frou Normand is quite good (the Supreme)


DK @kingsbury • December 9, 2015

Beautiful morning for a run @ Fishermans Wharf, SFO


DK @kingsbury • December 9, 2015

Roughly six miles from the financial district to pier 1 to Fishermans Wharf (and back)
