Post Bloomsday: I'm still here!

Monday, May 02, 2011

Sorry for the absence. I've been busy with last minute preparations for Sakura Con on Easter weekend in Seattle. The weekend before I had to work in the morning and immediately after I had to attend a local anime convention's fashion show fundraiser to take pictures. I'm one of their official photographers. I didn't run too much due to lack of time and poor weather. However at Sakura con which was held at the Washington State and Trade Center, I walked a lot! I had to work for the con and that involved a lot of walking. I avoided soda and energy drinks all weekend as well!

Then today was Bloomsday. Oh Bloomsday. You have been a goal for quite a while now. As daunting as you are I am glad I did it. I power walked for some of it and ran a lot of it. I ate tons of spaghetti the night before as well. I managed it in two hours and thirty minutes! Not bad for my first time, especially considering my cerebral palsy and only starting training a month prior. I just wanted to tell you all that I have not forgotten about this place and I accomplished my goal.

As for short term goals, I am going to try and train for 5k races and see if I can't bring my time down from 34 minutes to 22. If I can manage that then perhaps I can run Bloomsday in a shorter time next year. I am so dead tired right now but I'm wearing my finisher shirt and I have a shiny new medal hanging on my wall to remind me of what I managed to do today.

Did any of you guys run or walked Bloomsday today?
