Gregorio del Laboratorio goes to Spain: day 4

August 23, 1999

Saw top U.S. miler Regina Jacobs at the Parque de Maria Luisa during this morning’s run. Joel wished her good luck.

Checked my e-mail and sent out a few electronic postcards today at a cybercafe in Seville, which put me in a good mood. It’s kind of scary how, over the last six years, my emotions have gradually become tethered to my e-mail account.

It’s good to know that Cher remains popular over here.

Controversy broke out at the meet tonight when a Spaniard won the women’s long jump on her sixth and final jump. A video replay clearly showed that she had fouled, yet her mark stood. The Italian who was relegated to second place is supposedly going to retire in protest.
