We spent the weekend watching my son decathalon

I took some photos.

He did okay for a freshman, over 3000 points...the worst part was no-heighting in the pole vault, the best was his 1500 at 4:59, clearly his fastest ever and that's his main event. He also did a 1:02 in the 400, which is quite a lot better than the last time he did it, though that was a year ago. It's a pretty cool event, because you have to do everything, including, for almost everyone, some things you're not good at. I wish I could have tried heptathalon when I was in high school. (The girls do seven events, the boys ten.)

Anyway, a personal aside, back to music tomorrow.
