Some of you might remember a post I wrote at the end of last year about goals for 2010. My primary goal for the year was to drop about 50 pounds, and my reward for doing so would be running with the bulls in Pamplona Spain in July. So far, I've dropped about 20 pounds, and I'm really looking forward to the run.
A couple of my buddies have decided to run with me, and I got to thinking that it might be cool to extend the invitation to WSO readers. It could be a once-in-a-lifetime type experience, and it might be a lot of fun to put a bunch of douchey finance types in front of a couple dozen enraged bulls. If nothing else, it might be good resume filler and something to talk about with interviewers who will no doubt be jealous.
