I volunteered at the local 8K for about 4 hours and received a free race in the future. I enjoyed helping out, but didn't feel like I was a part of the race. They had me working from start to finish and couldn't get involved in the race, but still I feel it is a very important part of the sport. Sometimes you have to sit the race out and give back. I would have loved to run the course, but it was fun meeting a few people and learning about the timing machine as we took it apart to put into the van.
I ran 8 miles in 1:11 just under a 9 minute pace. My back is still giving me a lot of trouble. I don't know what to do about it?
Good new the census called me and I will be able to accept a job and take the $15 dollars an hour for 4-6 weeks of work (maybe 20 hours a week). We need it with all the money we are spending on our house.
I cannot wait to go on vacation with my little boy. I'm taking him to Oklahoma next week! It should be a lot of fun and a test to see if I can take care of him all by myself for three full days!
I bought some REALLY good beer called Stone IPA, and is it some good beer! I'm enjoying it right now.
I had a good week of running, 71 miles for the week. I need the high miles due to several days of planned no running.
