The third Haifa-Loyola competition workshop went well with two days of serious discussion of interesting papers with publication opportunities yet to be determined. For a change, I was not completely crippled by jet lag because I took 2 days in Tel Aviv before heading up to Haifa. Rather than push myself I stayed near the beach and enjoyed the relative quiet of Israeli independence day and used a couple of beach runs to reset my body clock. The longer of the two runs I went from the north end of the beach by the Hilton down to the old city of Jaffa and back. My turn around on the small hill by St Peter's Russian church. Really nice 7-8 miler. Sadly no real pictures available. Now back to more prosaic longer run today back in Chicago.
