Well, I finally ran my 5k this weekend, and I'm pleased with my result. I had planned on coming in at about 25 minutes, based off some workouts recently.
As you can see, I was pretty much bottled lightning. So fast that the camera couldn't capture me. In reality, Lisa was borrowing her friends camera and it didn't perform as admirably as one would hope. But it mostly got the job done. My watch clocked me at 23:37, so I was about a minute and a half faster than I planned. Woohoo!! I actually really enjoyed the course, with one exception. There is a really small hill at the end you turn a corner and you have literally 25 meters to go, so if you don't know the course very well, you have a hard time knowing when exactly to give a last good push. But oh well. Maybe next year.

Most of you who read this probably know already, but I'm the new EQP in my ward. After a month of waiting, it finally became official today. Weird, scary, exciting. And that's pretty much all I have to say on that.

Way to go uncle sneeze! When I leave my house to go running I clock back in at about 30 minutes......but that is for I think about 1.5 miles. You are my inspiration. Next time take my kids in our jogging stroller and give them a little ride. That will really give you a work out especially up that hill and they will love it!!
