Running son wasn't particularly happy with the results of this race--he's in the lead here, but came in second. Even so, last week he didn't even feel good enough to run this event, so that's progress. He'll run another mile and an 800 on Saturday, the results of which I will report.
In other news, I'm about a third of the way through writing a little piece I like to call a "keynote address" for the Student Philosophy Conference, a process which inevitably leads me to contemplate questions such as "how did I let this happen?" At the moment, the paper is called "Philosophy, Unreadability, and the Question of Henry James' Late Style," and so far I'm citing Stanley Cavell, Mikhail Bakhtin, Max Beerbohm, and Marianne Moore. Also the Old Undecidable himself, HJ. Could be a disaster--I'll let you know.
