Semiformalishmaybe

Nashville Equlibrium

Today at 16:45 I am running the Random Distance Run, which five years ago I managed to score second-worst of the people who finished. I imagine that Tom7, the only person I beat (whom I've come to vaguely know recently), will be running again - rematch time! Muhaha.

I am adequately nourished, have made sure I've been drinking sufficient water all day, and all primed to give it my best (which in all likelihood isn't very good, but then I *have* been jogging a bit more recently).

(I managed to be a bit more respectable-ish in CMU's other race - the Pretty Good Race, also about 5 years ago..)

Umm... I'm not actually going to watch this (because I *really* was not expecting to need to give a filmed presentation at the conference and oh goodness I hope the edited out the bit in the middle where I lost my train of thought *facepalm*), but if you want to find out about one of the smaller things I've been working on at work, see here. It's part of this general page for the conference. I am terribly embarassed to be the first link. Eep.

Hoping for a decent race today and to (in order of importance):

  1. Finish without my heart condition saying hello
  2. Finish the race
  3. Beat Tom7
  4. Manage to score somewhere better than the bottom 10% of runners who finish the race
