Pre-Training: 3.01 miles

Today I ran 3.01 miles in 32 minutes and 18 seconds. Thanks to an idea from ailie, I ran with my new Garmin Forerunner. It's a wrist-mounted GPS tracker designed for runners. I no longer have to pace out courses. I can run (almost) anywhere I want and be assured that I've run exactly the distance I intended to. Tomorrow I may go running on the waterfront.

In other news, I was really bugged by that apparent plagiarism that I uncovered the other day. In fact, I was so bugged by it that yesterday I wrote some software that automatically detects plagiarism. It's a bit rough in spots, but it seems to work fairly well. It will take a lot more time to get it to be something useful, but after the current deadline is over, maybe I'll make time for it.
