You gotta check the mirrors, just the side of your eye.*

Can I just say that I realize I have been behind on blogging. I know you guys are desperate to know what has been going on in my life...and you've been checking the blog daily like the loyal readers you are. So I apologize :P. So - I will now start catching up, but trying not to overload you with posts. For the next few weeks the post may be mixed (old and current). Hope you enjoy.

The Turkey Trot

On Thanksgiving Day, Kami and I got up a little early and went down to the University of Richmond for their 30-something annual 10k run that they have every year. The funny thing is - I grew up around the corner from U of R and have never heard of this race. But Kami, who moves from Utah, knows about it the first year she is here...she's a Wellness Coordinator for work - so I don't feel so bad.

It was only about two weeks after the half marathon, so you would think that it would be a piece of cake...yeah, I thought so too. I blame the hills, the area around U of R is very hilly. Also, my foot did that painful thing it did during the 1/2 marathon (I should get that checked out).

I didn't get the time I wanted, but I finished and got a shirt. In 2012 I'll get back into beating my times rather than just finishing a race. I'm already signed up for the Monument 10k, I am trying to sign up for the Mud Run (the website isn't working right), there's the Autism 5k that I run every year and I am going to do the 8k in November (instead of the half marathon).

You wouldn't be able to tell that I kind of hate running...would you?

Groundhog Day.

You only hate running while doing it. :) Not bad for a quadruped.
