    Tennis elbow from sailing

    Just thought I'd throw an update out there after a great summer of sailing. Back to 100% and feeling strong. Thanks to the stretches/eccentric exercises, occasional icing, and supplementing with Elbow Revive. No problems in the past several weeks!

    Worldcup Soccer

    certainly was a fun Cup to watch. I'm still wishing that it was Brazil v. Argentina in the final though! Oh well, at least we can say that the USA lost to the team that won it all!!

    GoPro vs. Contour

    Best places to live?

    Massachusetts, Maryland, and North Carolina are actually three of my favorite places to sail. I spend tons of time throughout the year in all three. Thinking about moving to one.

    Best sunglasses?

    Can't go wrong with Costas. I'd also recommend Smith's. I got a pair as a gift (no idea what model) and they're fantastic for being on the water. Not sure how much (a simple search will figure that out), but I'm sure they're not cheap either.
