Where in the hell am I?

Race for the Cure, Charlie Brown

Filed under: Uncategorized — John @ 5:22 am

So this morning I woke up at about 6:20 to get ready to do the Race for the Cure. Last year it was on my birthday (which is November 6), and it was the first distance race I had ever run (I ran sprints at an intramurals competition in elementary school). I was neck and neck with Texas Gov. Rick Perry for much of the race, but I pulled ahead at the end (much like I wish Chris Bell was doing right now).
This year, I wasn’t even sure I was going to run until about 6:35 am, when I decided I would be kinda antsy if I just walked. I’ve been feeling better, but not 100%, but I went for it. I couldn’t find anyone to match pace with (US Rep. Lloyd Doggett was there, but he did the Walk, not the Run) so I was kind of on my own. I’m used to a treadmill with a speedometer. Anyway, I ended up with a time of 27:27, which is one of my best times, and I finished 77th in my age class (30-34, and I bet I was the oldest person in that class too!).
I’m celebrating with beer and burgers at Casino El Camino, continuing a tradition. I think I can swing working a short day on Tuesday, too! And after election results come in, I may just want to start drinking again.
