2015-11-22 - Run for Shelter 10k

~6.2 miles @ ~11.9 min/mi

"... and THAT's why we have eyelashes!" says the woman in the bright artichoke-shamrock tutu to her similarly-clad friend. Dr Beth and I are at mile 6 of the 10k "Run for Shelter" in Alexandria, and with a pair of ladies in funny green skirts we've just encountered fierce winds swirling around the local office buildings, blowing sand and leaves and dust into our faces. It's a lovely morning, temps in the upper 40's, partly cloudy. Beth tells me about Krave, a chocolate-filled cereal that I must try ASAP, and with her friend Alexis we discuss whether custom varieties of Pocky candy could be produced using 3-D printing (additive manufacturing) technology. The sub-12 min/mi pace is perfect.
