Wow...this is so cool...I'll have to write about it....yeah..

Sunday, October 04, 2009

Ok this was not supposed to happen tonight..not at 4pm..with a wind to my face..and hills to my back..I gained a new personal Best in a 5k...wow...I still can't get it to sink in that I actually ran a whole minute and 10 sec. faster than I ever have before...on the clock of course....I wanted to cry......I really think I did inside...to myself...and laughed...because to anyone else that 25:40 is just a time...but to me it's my new best time...and I've been working a yr. for it...makes me wonder if God is so gracious enough to let me do this next yr....what will my time be at next yr. same race...faster I hope...slower maybe...feels like I just set a new world record or something...shows you if you push your body hard it will pay back in dividends...I don't want this feeling to end...can I repeat or brk.. this new record..last race I went back a minute...I certainly will try to beat it..but for now I'm just going to savor it...and dream about it and relive crossing the finish line with one hand raised high...like I am preaching to the sky....my dad always said I'd be a preacher....about as close as it will get..prob....enjoy your wins and your losses..remember life is so frail..and we are just here for a small moment in time...enjoy....it.....all...r
ico...Keep on Keeping on.... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Ps. I know it sounds sappy..but it's 5am..sorry...

    Sappy? Heck NO! It don't sound sappy! It makes my head spin to think that you finished in LESS THAN HALF the time that it took me. Were you still hanging around when the short heavy redhead with drool all over her face breathing like a whale in distress crossed that line . . .. um . . . . LAST?????? That would be me! So, yeah, I think your time is absolutely FANTASTIC!!! No . . . I think your time is absolutely AWESOME!!! No . . . I think your time is absolutely AMAZING!!!

    I do not think my vocabulary is big enough to express what I think about your time.

    Way to go!
