    He's within the same time zone. Also, the flight was probably no more than couple of hours.

    Ran a half-marathon yesterday in warm and humid conditions, was unhappy at the finishing time but pleased to discover that I finished 7th in my age group (out of 62), and was only one minute behind 4th place (again, in my age group). Not as bad as I'd feared.

    next time run slower. :)

    (science moment - iirc the longest feasible sprint distance is 300m. For any distance after that, you have to pace yourself)

    No science... but at the speeds that top runners can do a 400m "sprint" I feel like your body would still be in sprint mode right? a minute or slightly less of sustained effort still sounds like the range where you're still in all-out sprint.

    i got felt up by a fat TSA dude and there was not a thing in my pockets, and yet my lighter passed through in my carry on without incident. i love our airport security.

    In charlotte now catching a connecting flight. I love that these southern airports have designated smoking areas that dont require going in and out of security.

    Nope. I didn't receive any dinner invitation.

    I knew there was a member coming to Atlanta, but I just thought he happened to be passing through. I didn't realize y'all were doing a thing in Augusta. The last thing I heard all the Atlanta plans had basically collapsed and that was that.

    I'm :( that I didn't realize something cool was happening, but I'm glad you guys had a good time!


    They don't have those elsewhere?

    Well, they call the 400 the 'long sprint' but - as I read and see it - it's not uncommon to run the 400 as a 200 sprint, a fast float down the back-stretch, and a final 100m kick to the finish. Sprinting, as I'm using the term, is 100% anaerobic effort.
