Random Results (01 May 2006 at 11:47)
Another fun and busy weekend. On Friday I ran in the Random Distance Run (see also my shirt design). The roll of the dice was <6, 5>, which is just one lap short of the maximum of three miles. But three miles is no problem for me these days. I did pretty well, finishing in 8th place at a pace of 6:20 per mile.

After that we biked downtown to watch the Pirates play baseball. It was a great experience; the weather was totally lovely, our team played well and it was the first time I've ever been to a professional sporting event and seen my team win!

There were more than 8 runners in the race, right?

I commend your improvement over the past two years! I remember your 2004 finish of glory, so 8 is certainly a big jump up.

Also, why is the length of the RDR strictly increasing?

You sure you weren't rooting for the away team?

Max: There were like 60 entrants.
c: Yes! The first year I did it I was totally unprepared. It is nice to be competitive now. I don't understand why it gets longer each year, but it can't do that for more than one more!
mike: Phillies? Why, that's poppycock!
