My place of work is a pretty casual office environment. I pretty much wear jeans every day. In the summer, it's shorts on Friday. When we have visitors, though, we have to dress up a bit, as was the case earlier this week.
The dark brown slacks I wanted to wear have been a mainstay of my dressier work clothes for a couple years. In fact, they used to be the only pants that fit. Now, not even that is the case. When I pulled them on Tuesday morning, I couldn't even get the second hook to clasp onto the first metal loop. How distressing this was!

What the Baby Needs
Last night, Mrs. Viper and I were browsing through some items for when we have to register for baby-rearing supplies. We came to the most pressing concern: Which running stroller should I buy? Holy Mackerel there are a bunch of options!
The most challenging terrain I'll likely use it on is the crushed limestone paths of the Towpath Trail or Sand Run. I'm barred from the roads, and the trails are too rugged for pushing along a stroller.
You can spend a boatload on one of those contraptions, but is that really necessary? I'm thinking I'll need to cap the price at $200. Any of you running parents have a suggestion? Spill it in the comments below!
Happy Hour is nearly upon us, teammates! Have a finely brewed weekend. Run well and drink well. Cheers!
