Two Down, One To Go

Hello Internet!  I'm just going to post here as if weeks haven't gone by without me giving my little online diary any attention...

I mentioned here that I planned on participating in this Tri-fecta of races again this year.  Today was race #2, "Le Tour De Carrboro 10k".  And here I am...

What a beautiful day for a run!!  A little chill in the air when we started out and then perfect just a few minutes into it.  I was solo, again.  But that's okay...  (Marianne, if you're reading this, jump on this wayward bandwagon with me!  I get lonely out there and could use a running buddy!!).  There's always another runner girl to snap a photog or two for you!  Thanks unknown runner girl!!

I was pretty happy with my time.  A 10k is approximately 6.25 miles and I completed my run in 1:04:54.  And if you know anything about's not flat.  So, my goal is to finish the Wicked 10k in Virginia Beach on Halloween in an hour or less (insert prayers here).

I came to the conclusion this morning that I am only and will always only be a pleasure runner - I run so that I can eat dessert almost guiltlessly.  My conclusion was drawn because it occured to me, as they were handing out the awards to the fastest runners, that I would have to shave 15 minutes off my total time in order to even be CONSIDERED for a prize.  Yeah, those lovely aluminum baubles aren't THAT important to me!

Look out Gallop & Gorge (Thanksgiving morning), here I come!!
