Georgia Tech posted the results of Saturday’s Pi Mile 5K and shows me with a 33:34, which is right about what I thought. Woohoo! I’m very happy with that result, a 10:49/mile pace on a thoroughly hilly course. For those that have avoided math since high school, I should probably explain. Remember that pi is a never-ending number that is generally rounded to 3.14. And that’s just a hair over the 5K distance of 3.1 miles. And Georgia Tech is a school full of engineering dorks like me. Hence the Pi Mile 5K. (Yes, it was actually a 5K, not 3.14 miles.)
I also forgot to mention that the race t-shirt was perhaps my favorite of all time:
What’s not to love about a t-shirt that features a large pi that is actually constructed out of the digits of pi itself?
I’m home sick again. But I’m feeling much better. I expect to be back at work tomorrow.
