How to make even a mundane device exciting

I still haven’t gone out for a run since the New York Marathon. My right hip and quad is a little stiff. Usually I am licking my chops at the thought of going for a short run but I haven’t felt like it so far. I guess after training really hard for 4 months, I expected for the New York Marathon to go perfectly. It didn’t. I made mistakes in my training (see yesterday’s blog).  My training effort seemed like such a waste. I’ll have to improvise for the London Marathon in April.

The Nest thermostat arrived in the mail. I am far from handy but even I could install it in less than 20 minutes. It’s just a boring thermostat but it’s a thing of beauty. Nest has really figured out how to make a mundane device pretty exciting. I can now control it from my iPhone as long as I have an Internet connection. Thanks for SunRun, I got it for FREE ‘cuz I won a Twitter contest!
