Did my first 10K today. It was a really hard route with lots of hills, all up and into the wind. Just kidding about that part, but it did have lots of hills. I am glad to have said I did it, but it was very tough. I will have to train a little more seriously if I do another. I find sprint triathlons less difficult. Maybe because of less running. My bad knees are talking to me, hope they are not worse tomorrow. I guess there is a reason the ortho doc said don't do more than a 5K. I will probably have to follow that advice.

My triathlon partner just finished the White Rock half marathon. Really made me want to be there but with my bad knees I didn't think a half marathon was in my future. She also motivated another co-worker who used to work out with us to shoot for the Big D half marathon in April in Dallas. She pointed out to me that if the contestants on Biggest Loser could do a marathon, I can do a half. And you know their joints are all shot. Currently I can do 4 to 4 1.2 miles without much problem. I remember not to long ago that would have been impossible. So here goes, new goal. Don't tell my orthopedist, he will not be happy when he has to put my knees back together after that run. I am going to start training and go for it. That race also has a 5k, so I can fall back on that if needed. Never thought I would do a tri either, and I have 4 of those done for 2010. Wish me luck! Gotta run.

I finally got the house sold and fininshed the move. Now I just have to build the barn, fence, and supervise the house building! And I thought I had time to train? Oh well, somehow I have to make time for workouts. Afterall, its part of the lifestyle right? Did get a 4 mile run in today and it felt great. Sleep will just have to be optional.

We ran as the Scooby Doo cast on Oct 30th 5K in Allen, Texas. I was very excited because I got to take my dog and running partner Ellie on her first run. And yes, she played the part of Scooby. The kids all got it, but some of the adults thought she was Super Dog. Not sure what that was all about. She was first in her species group. Mainly because the other dogs were running with very slow owners. I still haven't broke the 10 minute mile mark. Very disappointing. See the attached pic. We are crossing the finish line "Scooby style!"
