2017-05-14 - Running Math

~7.6 miles @ ~13.4 min/mi

"Life is short — Running makes it seem longer!" Rebecca quotes from a t-shirt she saw at the Big Sur Marathon three weeks ago. (Hmmmm — one could interpret those words in opposite ways!) She and Gayatri trot along Rock Creek Trail on a sunny-cool morning, tiptoeing around occasional puddles from recent rains. Three big deer cross the road ahead; a few miles later two more stand close by the path.

"December 4th — in 2017 that falls on a Monday!" The Doomsday perpetual calendar algorithm reminds Gaytri of Shakuntala Devi, the Indian mental calculator. (This year 4/4, 6/6, 8/8, 10/10, and 12/12 are all Tuesdays; it's easy to work forward or back from them.) We talk about Ramanujan and upcoming races, running injuries and streaks, politics and bias, lost hats and found shirts. Rebecca and Gayatri share a sisterly hug. Happy Mother's Day to all!
