Another 5K PR!

Tuesday, October 30, 2012



Had a lot of fun this weekend running the Bill's 5k!

There is something deeply satisfying in setting off on a new adventure and having it work out. Thatís how this running thing has been for me over the past several months. Iím actually a little perplexed at how much Iíve enjoyed running and racing. It just never seemed like something that I could do. Ė Full Race Recap on my blog: www.thesecondlunch.com/2012/10/bills

    Even your "secret" goals match you with being a "born" runner! For someone with little experience you are spot on with what you are doing...physically and mentally. Way to go...sorry about the dead crow...yucky. Did the breakdown feel a bit spiritual? Glad Devon was there for you.
Congratulations on coming in under 70 minutes...no matter whose clock you use!
How did three people "run" after the results were communicated "day of"? Seconds and placements matter to runners! Wish they could have gotten placements right the first time. Or was the first time right and the additions after the run bogus. No matter. YOU were awesome.
TWO FIRSTS IN ONE MONTH...5K then 10K. The bar has been set. Here's to "watching" you in the future. Thanks for the fun blog and photos...the tutu's did make sharing the 10K more "fun".

An inconcevable accomplishment.

Yesterday I learned how to do HANDSTAND PUSHUPS.

We'll just ignore the fact that without my glasses I look 12, and apparently being photographed upside down is the least flattering way to photograph yourself EVER. BUT. HAND.STAND.PUSHUPS.



The whole story over on my blog:

I pretty much have no excuses left in lifeÖ because I. can. do. handstand. pushups.
