Set The Date Aside!

Several inquiries have been received at Blog Central as to the dates for this year's Alumni Reunion and Golf Tourney.  So it is certainly time to alert the troops and get them to set the date aside.

May 17,18

Again, the headquarters will be downtown at the Days Inn.

PSU Is 1000 U?

With Danae Rivers' first meet of the Indoor Season, Penn State became the holder of both Collegiate Records in the 1000M run.  Previously, Brannon Kidder achieved the title for the Men with his 2:18.26 in 2016.  The record still stands.

Danae's record eclipsed the previous mark by more than 2 seconds with 2:38.58.

(In addition, Ryan Foster still holds the Australian National record for the event.)

Danae's strong performance during the XC season seems to indicate that even more wonderful things are in the works.  The combination of raw speed, increased endurance, and tactical experience are combining to make for an interesting future for Danae and all of us watching.

Against Medical Advice

Spouse the Better completed the Disney Half Marathon this morning despite breaking her ankle less than 3 weeks ago. This continues a 12 year streak of the race.

As her podiatrist, I knew she would do this and nothing would stop her. And despite walking with a CAM boot, she passed many runners in the "race". She was powered by the autograph of Olympian Jeff Galloway. I ran 2 miles on the hotel treadmill in a slightly faster pace. Slightly. Never bet against my wife.

Barkley Is Famous!

Ron Moore is still on the weight list for the Barkley Marathons (fingers crossed), but his adopted dog from the course in Frozen Head State Park is now a star in Runners World!

Ron tried to wear his Apple Hill Podiatry shirt for the filming, but I guess he was overruled.

I Really Do Use My Treadmill

I had my treadmill serviced last week.  It had run out of wax and it was sounding a bit louder lately.  Vitu Chiwaka of A.I. Fitness in New Cumberland, PA fixed it up just fine.  So I can add to the mileage on "The Beast".

Yeah, 23,304 miles in 15 years.  Not counting the scores of miles I have actually run outside!  hee hee hee

Happy New Year: I Need Help With The Physics On This One

Happy New Year!  Let's start out with a bang.  A Big Bang of sorts...

If anyone can help me understand any of this, I will be all ears.  Strings, bubbles, accelerating expansion and extra dimensions reminds me of the days when the kids were crawling in the tubes high above the floor at  Chuck E. Cheese's.  But as far as understanding any of the Physics in this paper, I will stick to Skee Ball and cardboard pizza, thank you very much.
