new PB time in 5K!
Sunday, June 08, 2008      6 comments

27:44 according to my watch and 28:11 gun time (no official chip time so we'll have to go with my watch!) WOOHOO!!!! A full minute off the previous PB! I started about halfway back and it was perfect, the start felt 'slow' even though ... Read more

Why do guys in cars think it's OK to whistle at me when I'm out for a run? Oh I know! It's because they can get away with it! If a guy whistled at me at work or made some suggestive comment, I'd report him to any authority that wa... Read more

This was around 1999 or early 2000, at my highest weight (135-140 pounds, at least 35% body fat). I actually thought I looked good at the time. It wasn't until a guy friend came to visit and told me point blank that I was an out of shape fat b... Read more

Goals update, bad news
Monday, May 12, 2008      4 comments

Just got clarification regarding RKC weight classes. If I lose 1 more pound (which I don't really want to do), the requirement is 40 snatches. Otherwise, I'm in the next weight class, which requires 50 snatches. I did 15 per arm yesterday... Read more

Sunday, May 04, 2008      3 comments

This race was definitely easier than I anticipated. I was thinking that there would be brutal downhills where I'd feel out of control (hate that, give me hills any day!) Chip time was 56:17, well ahead of my anticipated time of 1:00+. Thin... Read more

I ran the Bay and Back 5K in 28:44.8 today, completely demolishing my previous PR of 31:08. I think my next goal is to run a similar time and just have it HURT LESS! The best part was when I muscled up a steep hill in the 2nd half and actu... Read more
