Monday Meme

I have been TAGGED by Pam with this meme:


Write ten words beginning with that letter in your journal, including an explanation of what the word means to you and why, and then pass out letters to those who want to play along.

P3- the letter that begins your favorite sport…'R'

Running
My passion – 'nuff said

Random
We'd like to think that most things in life are random occurences and for our paultry human minds, they are. Our interconnectivity to space-time and the world around us tells us that most things that can't be explained are random. So, random, in the world of statistics is the benchmark that we try strive for because randomness means that “things we can't control… their just there”

My Fave bumpersticker reads “Practice Random Acts of Kindness”

Radioactive
Hmmm, tough one here… could be the basis of one of my degrees

Raider
Raider as in Raiders of the Lost Ark, one of favorite movies of all time. With the new movie in the works, makes me think of the past movies…

Reduce Reuse Recycle
Although I am not a hemp-wearin', birkenstock steppin', tie-dyed hippy freak I do share some concern with my environmental breathern about the state of the Earth (re: radioactive). I do try to reduce the amount of stuff and definitely reuse. I am made fun of for my “plastic” collection and “glass” collection in my garage. I try to use these materials at least once before I recycle. For my convenience, I pay for recycling… only $4.50 a quarter. I can recycle newspaper, plastics 1 & 2, glass. I have to take mixed paper and cardboard to one of the local recycling centers. I also donate as much clothes to the phillipines as much as possible… again reduce and recycle… when you run a lot of races (ref: Running) you get a lot of shirts.

Regression
A statistical method in which data points are analyzed to estimate a formula that best descibes the population data with the smallest amount of error.

Respiratory
All that which deals with breathing. With Running and sports as my hobbies and with my history of respiratory illness… this is important to me.

Resilient
Being able to return to a normal state or being minimally effected after a daunting event. I would like to think that I possess this ability or attribute…

Reductio ad absurdum
n. 'reduction to absurdity'; proving a proposition by showing that its opposite is absurd; disproving a proposition by deducing from it an absurd conclusion; such conclusion.

This works well on parents… and when I am in Drunk Terry mode.

Refract
OR the bending of light. This one of the methods on what gives us color (why is the sky blue?). Color is one of the forces that drives my love for photography.

If you'd like to play, you can either grab a letter or I can 'assign' you want… and I will chose the letter randomly. If you do this meme, leave a comment so I can check out your 10 words.

I'm a husband, father and runner in the Knoxville area. I love the way that running makes me feel and how it has changed my thinking. I am always looking for the new PR whether in the 5k or the marathon
