1st overall in 38:40, a 2:10 margin over 2nd and a 23 second course record. 23 seconds might not seem like much, but the North Carolina General Assembly could disenfranchise hundreds of voters in that time. At this rate, given a few more months, the only people that will be able to vote in NC are Art Pope and zombie Ayn Rand.

THE BAR EXAM IS IN 3 DAYS! ARGHHHHHHHH! ARGHHHHHHHHH is actually both a statement of impending doom, and a useful acronym. A stands for Actionable. I think R is Resitution. G....not sure what G is. H...umm...help? Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help!
So I should probably get back to studying. I've reached the point where I'm looking to outside help. Constitutional Law...Schoolhouse Rock. Criminal Law...Judge Judy. Torts...ummm...Cupcake Wars? As previously mentioned, I should probably learn what a tort is.

Anyway, raced up here on my last day in Colorado! A 10k on trails with 1,000 feet of climbing at 9,000 feet elevation outside Boulder sounds like a root canal, but it's actually way better than that. Mostly because there are no dentists.
In bar exam hypotheticals, dentists often commit murders. I think I have some pent-up aggression toward that profession. I have also learned that if your name is Dan Defendant, you should probably have a lawyer on retainer. Oh dear god...retainer. I bet that'll be the next murder weapon.

Strap on some inov-8s, toe the line, AND THEY'RE OFF!
It starts up a steep climb, and I jumped to the lead before it plunged back into twisty single-track. To be honest, my body felt a bit horrible today and I had trouble focusing. I blame the test. And if anyone says that the bar exam is not a proximate cause of my running malaise, I will refer them to a dentist.
It was such a fun race, even if my breathing sounded like a moose passing a kidney stone. Dad won the 60+ age group and I am so proud of him. Addie won the award for best dog alive. And Addie's poop won the award for best impression of what a moose would pass.
|She was a prodigy.|
Speaking of pass, I should review what a Corporation is. Spoiler Alert: it's a person, and it had generous tax-deductible donations to the Romney campaign. Thanks so much for everything guys! Back on the grid starting on Wednesday night. You all are amazing!
