#1 - I just became an Aunt on my side of the family. Welcome baby Lola!
#2 - I just ran a personal best in a 5K race. I got 2nd place in my age group (as did the DH, who left me in the dust). My time was 22:06 and I was really happy with it because the course was tough. The race had 5,000 participants (not all in the 5K run) and was a fundraiser for the local cancer center. I wore a tag in memory of my father.
I tried a new pre-race tactic: I had a cup of strong black tea about an hour before the race. I had read about athletes seeing positive results from drinking colas. Just the thought of putting a soda in my belly before race time is enough to make me queasy, but it made me wonder about tea. Who knows if it was the tea or those dang hill repeats the DH has been merciless about each Tuesday morning, but I did well today!
That's me, giving you the peace sign. But I did also get 2nd place in my age group. I suppose I could be showing off. LOL (laughing out loud)!
