Not bad, considering it immediately follows a 10 day stretch of palindromes 1/20/21 to 1/29/21, which we haven't had in the US for a while either (9/10/19 to 9/19/19 of which only 91019 is prime)

I drove a couple hundred miles yesterday to compete in my first post-pandemic race. I got a 5:07 mile and was one of the slow guys out there (14th out of 17 in my heat and 41st overall; results are at: https://finishedresults.com/files/20...1-sundown.html )

But I was happy, as it was the fastest mile I've ever run on a non-downhill course. It was also nice to compete again and feed off the crowd's energy.

Did you wear the mask during the race?

Didn't need to have one. The post was obviously a time travel post. It was stated as being "post-pandemic". Since the pandemic is still active in MooMoo's home district right now, it has to be a post from the future. The time travel made an "off by one" error on the year.

From the context, I read "first post-pandemic race" as "first race since the pandemic began."

I bet it felt good to be back on a track again!

Hmm, doesn't look like all the spectators were wearing masks.

No, I only wore it while watching other races and while doing my warmup and cool down.

Bummer. The official rules were that all coaches, race officials, and spectators had to wear masks at all times, and athletes could only take them off while competing. However, enforcement was pretty spotty

Yeah, that's what I meant. Apologies for the unclear wording.

Default I now have my Grade 10 Classical Guitar Certification.

This is a Canadian Certification from the Royal Conservatory in Toronto.
I don't know how it compares to other Classical Guitar programs;
but this system only has 1 level above Grade 10 called ARCT: Associate of the Royal Conservatory in Toronto.

I started dabbling in guitar as a 19 year old in University then put it in the closet most of my 20's.
I started playing Classical Guitar and taking lessons as a 30 year old (proof it is never too late to learn).

Through several life changes I have still been able to play most of these last 33 years.
