I don't currently know anyone at Washington State University. I had a friend from my undergraduate days who came here for graduate school. He was a couple of years ahead of me, so he was off to graduate school while I was still dreaming about it. He got a Master's degree in physics, then went to work for Lockheed and now makes much, much more money than I do.
With nothing better to do, I thought that I would drop in on the ice cream social for the WSU math department. Virtual ice cream is better for my cholesterol level than the real thing.
I did an easy four miles this morning. I was definitely sore, but I wasn't sure if I was going to get to run again this year, so I toughed it out. It wasn't pretty, but I made it.
