    Wow, you are smokin' those 5ks! I hiked 8+ miles today with about 1100' elevation gain [equivalent of 110 flights of stairs] so I got my workout for the day, too, but did it pretty slow so I could enjoy the landscape, birds, talk with friends, etc.

Hyundai 5K at UC Irvine

Sunday, September 02, 2012

I participated in the Hyundai Hope for Wheels 5K yesterday mornning at UC Irvine. The race went through the campus, which was beautiful.

Next Saturday I participate in a 5K that goes through Knotts' Berry Farm and the adjacent Soak City water park. It should be fun.

Orange County Fairgrounds 5K

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

Got the official results of the 5K I did at the fairgrounds a couple of weeks ago. I finished 14th out of 39 women in my age group. The funny stat is that, overall, I finished 833rd out of 1666 entrants -- smack dab in the middle.

    Linda -- I've signed up for several in the next couple of months -- found them through Active.com. On 9/8, I'm doing one that goes through Knott's Berry Farm. There's an option of getting a discounted ticket to the park, but I've not chosen that. There's also another 5K in downtown Anaheim on 9/22, it's in conjunction with a beer festival. Again, there is an option to purchase a discounted ticket, but I've declined. There are other ones I've signed up to do, but the fairgrounds one was a lot of fun.

That is a funny stat - the kind of thing you couldn't have done by trying, yet did by just being there and being you!

Cypress 5K

Saturday, July 28, 2012

I participated in the Cypress 5K this morning as a non-competitive walker, which means that there was no official time (or chip). It was a flat course, and I finished with an unofficial time of 36:28, which was my personal best. I did a combination of walking and jogging.

Saturday the 7th

Saturday, July 07, 2012

It's Saturday and the day that I can do what I want. So I went on a walk on a local trail through a neighboring town -- 4.6 miles up and 4.6 miles back. It took me 2 hours, and 32 minutes, which was very enjoyable because I was listening to my audio book and music and gave me a chance to just chill out. Ahhhh.
