An observation

from the race today. Bear in mind Iris only started running about 5 weeks ago, so our goal was just to finish it. Which, again, I must say she did in smoothtacular fashion. But of course we were slow (and I do still have this broken toe, I guess. Weird - it's not hurting at all). We got to the finish with most of the field already there, cheering us on. Iris says to me, "I could have gone another mile!" Yeah, we were slow. But we ran well.

I think running is a kind of performance art. Style and personality count.


  1. Congrats to your wife on her 1st 5K! May she be hooked like the rest of us.

  2. Thanks!

    Yeah, I think she's hooked. Now she wants to start doing speed work to better her time...

    One of us... one of us... one of us...
