WOTD August 2-8, 2015

The TJHSST Pi-Miler

Saturday morning my brother and I braved the threat of terrible weather to run the 3rd Annual Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology Pi-Miler!  The run was 3.14 miles (hence the name), and consisted of a loop through the nearby neighborhoods of TJ.  I needed a…

Happy (Rany) Leap Day!

I hope everyone is having a good “Leap Day,” as it only comes around once every four years.  Apparently if you were born on February 29th, you are called a “Leapling.”  Learn something new every day 🙂 According to Wikipedia.com: “In the British Isles, it…
