35:33 5K! (also costume pics!)
Sunday, August 02, 2009
My best-ever 5K time - on a treadmill in a gym with (some) air conditioning, admittedly, not on asphalt. I hit a nice balance of running and jogging; on the one hand, if I jog the whole thing, my total time isn't all that impressive, and on the other, if I throw in too much running, I run out of energy at the end and have to walk part of it (which also makes my total time unimpressive.) I'm trying to hit that balance more consistently.
Also, some people who were at the con have sent me some costume photos, which makes me happy. I still might dress up again to get one really nice photo for the costume shop that threw in so much free consulting about makeup. (They have a whole webpage full of customer costume photos and ask you to send them in. If the con sends me my trophy any time soon, I could even get that into the picture ...)
