My run was sub par to say the least. I was aiming for 28:30 for the 5k and ended up with a 30:24. My boyfriend helpfully suggested I get a Garmin or something to track how fast I'm going. I've always known it was a good idea but I always thought I could "just tell". That's bull of course because no one has that kind of intuition.
So I'll have to get something. Or mayb just USE Runkeeper...Can you get Runkeeper on an iPod or is it just an iPhone thing? I'm so out of the loop on things like this
My friend did awesome on her half marathon though! And she convinced me to finally sign up for the Edmonton Derby one in August. Gonna be a hard, awesome training summer. Anyway, she had a goal of 2:30 (she's never ran any race before!) and got 2:20!!!! So Good.
Another friend (best friend actually) got engaged on the weekend! I am over the moon happy for her and excited to help plan the wedding and getting to be a bridemaid for the first time. I haven't met the guy since she lives in BC but he seems great from Facebook and her descriptions. He's a Ginger too which will making pretty striking babies considering she's Philapino!
ALSO got my costume made for the Underwear Affair this Saturday. My team is being Batman characters. There are alwasy superhero costumes but I don't think I've seen any groups that are all people from one series so it's gonna be awesome. My friend Val is Batman, we have Catwoman, Robin and my mother is Penguin (she has a tux jacket, umbrella and other such things haha). And I'm the Riddler. The costume looks great of course! I'll have to post a picture of us before and after the race.
I'm running the course for the race tomorrow and will be using Runkeeper to see how fast I go and how fast I WANT to go.
More to come :)
