Damn It Feels Good To Be A Geek!!

...I mean Gangsta!  ...of Science!

That's right... Geek Bling!


That's right, a cheesy science joke.  ha-ha-ha

After my morning run today, which was a second episode of falling in love with my new shoes, I came home and got to help edit a paper that my roommate is presenting to his Ph.D. committee at school. And let me tell you...

Damn it feels good to be a geek!

Science terminology, data implications, rethinking the various transcription processes, forming hypothesis and experiments based on data...  It just felt good to sit down and think/chat specific science again.  If this has any implications on where I'm headed, I will definitely be back to research when the time is right.

On another note, if you don't have anything to do today or just don't feel like being productive at work on hump day, you should head over and read the awesome race reports from the Ironman 70.3 Augusta!  I'll link you to some of them below...

Kevin @ Half TRI-ing

Karen @ Working it Out

Summer @ The Blue Line Runner

A big CONGRATS to each and every one of you (plus all of those I'll never find or hear about).

Questions
1.  What are you proud to be that a highschooler might think is embarassing?
I'm a science geek to the core!  

2.  What are you doing on this hump day?
I have a short shift today (4-10), so I got my morning run, I'll watch a documentary (Forks over Knives - more to com on that later), do some cooking, and try to relax.



Swim fast.  Bike smart.  Run hard.
