Resting

I ran a whooping seven 13.2 miles (counting the race!) this week. But come on, I ran that grueling 10k last Sunday. Then there was the grueling signup for the MCM. I deserve a rest after all that. Plus, now the search is on for a training group. I'm telling you, it's been an exhausting week.

What was fun was getting all your congrats! And that was just for signing up! How are you all gonna top that when I cross the finish line? You guys rock!

Finally, here is some video from the Mother's Day 10K. It's me (shocker) flying on angel's wings across the finish line. (You will, however, have to lay down to watch it since I cannot figure out how to rotate it in I-Movie. I tried a few plug-ins, and found out I have to buy quicktime pro. Yeah. No.)

Enjoy! (If you look closely, you can see Coach Bex scoring us as we come in.)

Love that video, even lying down:) You looked great! Are you joining a training group for the MCM? If not, maybe we can do a few training runs together when I get down there.

Great finish! But please tell your daughter the difference between a 10k and a 6k (I presume she meant 6 miles?)

It looked like you were cruising to the finish. Congratulations on the MCM sign up. We will all have to triple the total of comments when you complete it.
