It was cold and windy outside as Marty Klanchar, Ken Davis, Greg Dillon, Judd Michael, Lance Bland, Mark Fedkin, Beth Herndon, Frank Zaffino, Stephanie Serriere, Jessica Charles, Jamie Volkert, Dave DeGroote, Mark Traband, and Marty Mazur headed for the dry air of the MSF indoor track. John Sheakoski and Tom Cali decided to "brave" the trip upstairs to do their workout on the Rec Hall track. There they got to see Esther Prins and her new baby. Esther's on her way back!

Bwana decided to hand out an old favorite, the 6 X 2-lap relay. Bwana thinks that not only does the cold suck all the moisture out of the air, it also depletes it of oxygen and leaves a high concentration of idiot molecules in what remains. Bwana had to explain the whole concept about 3 times, as well as remind everyone to please stay out of lane 3 because of the vision-impaired runner (not Dillon) working out there.

Speaking of idiot gas, Bwana must have missed the email wherein the whippit party was announced. John Domico, Dana Todd, and Michael Goldfine were gathered around a big cannister of nitrous in John Pringle's garage. He said he'd "found" it behind a dentist's office. George Lesieutre, Chairman of the Aerospace Engineering Department, was locked in his office with a plastic model of a hypersonic aircraft and 17 open tubes of Testor's. Tara Murray was huffing Chablis and crudités at a librarian conference in Savannah. And Greg Luna has been exploring the hallucinatory properties of snorting finely ground Mexican chili peppers!
