Ten in a row. Not 3 foot putts made, not laps up Flagstaff, not days without eating fried food. I’ve never lasted that long doing any of those things. Ten pink patients in a row. Pink is the color that denotes a female patient in our ER. Blue, of course, is assigned to males. Dan tells me that statistically, the gender distribution for ER’s has been recorded as 50/50. If that were true, then today would have been the equivalent of flipping a quarter ten times and getting ten heads in a row. The probability of that is 1/1024 (1/2 to the tenth power. Fuzzy math? Not sure). Interestingly, this isn’t the first time this has happened. Slightly less interesting is the fact that I’ve never had 10 blue patients in a row. I don’t think I’ve ever had 5 blue patients in a row. 50/50? I’m not buying it.
Laramie Enduro registration opened up yesterday. I tell you this, not only because I, and Team Alchemist, plan to race it, but because they have the coolest race jersey you’ve ever laid eyes on. Perhaps I’m a little biased. Available for purchase at the Alchemist Team Store. The Laramie Enduro has become so popular that they have gone to a lottery system for registration, a la Leadville (but without the insanity). Race proceeds benefit the Albany County Chapter of the American Red Cross of Wyoming, Medicine Bow Mountain Bike Patrol, and other local non-profit organizations.
