Wow...6:30 am? Really?

Not sure what got into me this morning, but I woke up (willingly), made breakfast for me and Matt Carr, took care of Arnold, then went out for a 3+ mile run. WHAT? I guess I'm getting ready for Summer when I'll be able to do such things.

Looking forward to the Morgan's Wonderland 5K. I'm trying to shave off some time so I can reach an 11' mile. That still seems like a long time, but I'm working my way down to a 9' mile. *pffffffffff
While out on my run, I saw someone riding a gator towards me. I realized it was Matt Carr. I thought to myself, "Whew, I'm glad he drove up and I was running. I hate the thought of him catching me when I'm walking. Ok, don't walk. Make it to the gate. You can do this!" Guess what? I didn't. I ALMOST did, but stopped 15 feet short or so, but I did almost sprint the last 30 feet or so. Does that make up for it? Anyone? Anyone? *sigh*

Well, I have a ton to do today. One of which is to actually SIGN UP for the Morgan's Wonderland 5K. TTFN and get out there and RYAO!!!

Beach to Bay 2011

Dear Readers (Becca and Nancy),
Just wanted to let you know that if you EVER decide to run Beach to Bay, have patience because the traffic was horrible and our plan, while well thought out, was faulty. Be prepared to do whatever is necessary to get to where you need to go even if that means you show up FIVE THOUSAND HOURS before your scheduled run time. Also, be willing to catch a ride with complete strangers (even if they look like the guy/girl you saw on America's Most Wanted the night before). Otherwise, you'll NEVER get to where you want to go. The race was tons of fun. We didn't place, OBVIOUSLY. I don't even think that we got our time registered because the course closes at 1:00 p.m. and we came in a bit after that. Sad to say that our "best efforts" weren't quite best enough. There's always next year. Our plan for next year is to try a married couples team. All we need to do is get Zarder and Pacheco to get hitched and it'll be a TRUE married couples team. hahaha
My next race is Farias 5K. That should go WAY easier!!!

It's almost time

Beach to Bay (Corpus Christi, Texas) is fastly approaching. I think the team is getting ready. I hope the team is getting ready. I was proud to have run with a friend of mine yesterday (Saturday). She ran her first 5K and she finished under an hour! I'm so proud of her for not quitting. My shins are killing me today, but it was TOTALLY worth being by her side to see the look on her face as she crossed the finish line.

Until next time! RYAO
