How has your Saturday morning been going so far?
First off, I did run the WHOLE 5k today, even though I'd been remiss in my training; that is, if we count it as running no matter how slow I go - 38:15 was my time. 25 minutes into the race, my iPod went on the fritz. To my credit, I tried to fix it, while still running. No go, but I have fixed it since then. (FYI - when an iPod freezes up, set the hold switch to hold, then turn it back off, and push center and menu for 6 seconds to re-set [thanks la!])
While I was standing in line for an outhouse I noticed a guy friend I used to sleep with about 8 years ago and his wife, (no, he wasn't married then) who's name I can never remember (the wife's - I know his name). I would like to say this was a guy I used to date, but that would be misleading. I immediately regretted my decision to attend the race sans grooming, so I avoided them like the plague.
By 9 am, I was seated at Hennesey's with a cocktail in hand . . . thanks to la for joining my friends and I for breakfast!
Now I intend to spend the rest of the day slightly drunk and laying around in the sun . . .
Hope every one else has a good weekend too!

Wow...38 minutes for a 5K, that's really...um...congratulations on finishing the race!

Also - is there some sort of blogging community social thing that's occurring that I'm not aware of? You and I should take the dogs for a hike sometime. I'm sure Wally would love to meet Hannah.

sage - thanks - 'twas nice here today, but we could sure use the rain

edit - the phrases you were searching for . . . "painfully slow", "tortoise-like", "almost geriatric"? But honest, my race strategy was SLOW and steady! :-)

Taking the dogs for a hike would be great - Hanna loves big male Labs . . . she gets all coy and playful - it's pretty funny!

Diane, you should have walked over and asked, Excuse me, but do I know you from somewhere?"

Thanks for including me, Diane. It was my pleasure! I'm glad you got the iPod fixed, too.

After getting semi-looped at breakfast, I went and saw Blades of Glory which is not art, but was good for some pure cheeseball hilarity.

Mucho props on your 5K Diane! Way to go in keeping so active with golf and running. I'm slowly getting back into running/jogging so I'm going to use your 5K run as inspiration!

And I hope your weekend was wonderful, can't beat laying the sun. And while there's no rain up north (sorry to hear about the weather Sage), it's still a bit cold up here.

Congratulations! I envy your fitness. I doubt I could make it three blocks without whining.

Hope you enjoyed your tipsiness. Cheers to you!
