My goal was to finish, and I joked before I began, that I aimed to finish last. Let's just say I almost achieved that. I think I "ran" the 5K about 30 seconds faster than I did in January. I walked more than I wanted to (maybe about half a kilometre) and I blame my dismal time on the fact that a) I didn't run a lot in May (and not at all in April), and b) it was about 22C (72F) (with 100% humidity) at 8am and I do not do well in heat. Blah. I was so hot I thought I was going to pass out. I was also proud of the fact that out of the 160 runners, there were only two women in the age 40-49 category (Yep, I finished second in my category! Ha ha ha!), so at least I was out there and representing my age group :)
But I did it. And now I am eager to practice for my next run in October. I'd love to do it in 35 minutes or less.
On the way home from the sale, we passed a garage sale and I exclaimed, "Dave! That desk is EXACTLY like one I had growing up! We have to stop!!!" And he turned the car around, I jumped out, and since it was only $20, within about thirty seconds, we had acquired the following desk.
