We survived the 10k and are rewarded with warmer temperatures!
Good morning, RVA! It’s 42 °F, the birds are chirping, and today’s gonna be a great start to the week. We’ll have highs in the mid-60s, chances of rain in the low zeros, and some wind later in the afternoon. That’s just the beginning; tomorrow we’ll see temperatures in the 70s.
Over 36,000 runners crammed into The Fan for the 15th Monument 10k despite the rain. Residents can rest easy knowing that their Saturday routines will remain free from interruption for another 229 days–when the Richmond Marathon strikes.
The baseball season is here! You can read that exclamation point as one of exasperation or excitement. Up to you. The Nats kick of their season today at 1:10 PM against the Mets.
College basketball’s Final Four has been decided: #2 Wisconsin, #8 Kentucky, #1 Florida, and #7 UCONN. The penultimate two games take place on April 5th, with the whole shebang coming to an end on the 7th.
Today’s the final day to enroll for health insurance this year through healthcare.gov.
Just a heads up: tomorrow is April Fool’s Day. If you read anything that excites you or upsets you it’s most likely not true.
This morning’s longlisten
At the end (skip ahead to minute 55) of last week’s episode of the Accidental Tech Podcast the hosts discuss the treatment of women in technology fields.
The larger issue, I think, is worth discussing. If we don’t take the opportunity to discuss this issue when something happens related to it in our little circles of the blogs and twitter feeds that we read, then we’re never going to talk about it. If it remains one of those things that everyone is uncomfortable with, that we just never say anything about and we want to ignore it until it goes away or blows over or don’t want to follow it then I just feel like things won’t get better.
