Business as usual here at Stanford. Class, runs, etc.
As far as running, I had a speedy run today at Los Altos Hills even though my legs felt a little tired. I have run many days in a row now so I plan on taking tomorrow off.
Regarding school, I gave my presentation on Lease Guaranties in Real Estate Transactions and I think it went well. Now I have to put together the paper this week which should not be difficult after completing all the underlying research and getting a good start on the questions.
A racing lesson proved at the Chicago Marathon last weekend: run through the finish line! Never let up until you cross that line! Adriana Pirtea, whom I watched run while she was at UTEP and I was at running Rice, unfortunately strolled down the home stretch too casually to be narrowly beaten by Berhane Adere who came out of nowhere. She essentially blew it – especially sad because this was her debut marathon
See video of the womens finish here.
In the mens race, both Patrick Ivuti and Jauad Gharib gave everything they got, but Ivuti wound up taking it by five-hundredths of a second because of his final dash in the last few meters and lean at the tape – unbeleivable!
See men’s video here.
