Almost done with the re-composition of the nomination for the USOF Silva Award. While one might infer that my composition and rhetorical skills are lacking, given that the gist of what I wrote in 2006 has been used for resubmissions in 2007, 2008, (to no avail) and now in 2009, I am fairly confident that a probably equally compelling (though no doubt shorter nomination) was submitted twice in during the 1990's. I recall Hamlet and something about Denmark...
Last year I decided upon a passive/aggressive coping mechanism is response to failure. This year I may just get aggressive.

Run tempo 20:00  2.93 mi (6:50 / mi) shoes: Reebok Bobby Curtis
Level 8 hills. 8.5mph. Felt good. Then 10mph for the last 4 minutes. Tougher, but held it together. Good to know there is more in the tank.
I think other people at the gym must think I am a little odd.
