Two years since

It's been two years since I ran a 10K. I am looking to set a NEW PERSONAL RECORD. That would mean going under 50:00 by better than 15 seconds; better than 8:00 pace. Let it be cool out.

I woke at 5:20 this morning for my Sunday run. Trouble was it is now 6:20 which means I had to hustle to be on time. My hurry up offense worked as I got to run with a guest runner from Virginia. She worked for FEMA during Katrina - her insights were interesting - and now trains FEMA workers under a contract. We hit it off since we both have boys who are (near) officers in the Army. On top of that her hubby is a Major General. She gave me his card and said I should call him if I or T ever needed some help/advice. That was a worthwhile run.

I have a hankering for a special future post. I think some of you will like it. I just need to do a little research.

Baseball season has begun. I participated in my first online draft of the season last night which will result in a summer of fantasy.

Go Tribe! and Go Braves! (yes I have two favs) :o)

Sounds like a great run...and, you could so smoke a 10k these days

Maddy said...

Got to agree with Neese here. Based on your track workouts you will be ready for a great "best ever" race!

Good luck with the 10K. And Halleluiah to baseball season starting!

Yeah, let's vote for cool weather.

SGT Ely just included me in a fantasy league...we do our draft in a couple of weeks. Can the Cubbies do it this year??? It is an eternal question; but it is great just to hear Spring Training games on the radio.

I predict that PR will be a done deal.

What day do you start your Chicago training? Am I behind yet? I'd ask you myself but you're NEVER on IM anymore.

I hope your Fantasy Baseball League doesn't allow smack talk (maybe there are too many games for that sort of thing.) My Fantasy Football League broke up over over-the-top smack talk. Too bad!

Good luck with that PR!
