Update & Le Grizz 2014
Meanwhile, as always, early October brings several events of special interest here. First, there's the 33rd running of the Le Grizz 50 Mile Ultramarathon, on Saturday, 11 October 2014. Your less-than-faithful blogger will be there, attempting his 14th completion of the race. Race Director Pat Caffrey, a Montana ultrarunning and mountaineering legend, has announced his retirement. While he has found team to take over direction of the race, this will likely be the last running on the traditional course along the west shore of Hungry Horse Reservoir, hence it is being billed as "The Last Le Grizz." I'll be posting a report or two from the race, hopefully with pictures.
The next few days will also bring the announcements of the Nobel Prizes for Peace and Economics. Frankly, Leon Walras was correct that contributions to economics are contributions to peace, but we have to make do with the present system. I will post my Nobel predictions here and also provide commentary on the actual announcements. Stay tuned.
