1000m Medalist

I missed another 5K today. That's 2 misses in the past 3 weeks. This time it's because S. & S. & S. left yesterday for a girl scouts camp, so I'm left with the littlest S. I just dropped her and a buddy off at a birthday party, and I'm at Dunn Bros. Coffee checking out their free wireless and their chai latte (surprise! it's not too bad).

Not one to let a good race go to waste, we went out there anyway this morning and I switched my registration from the 5K to the 1K. That's the look of excitement 10 minutes before her first "long" race.

This is the look of apprehension 1 minute before her first "long" race!






And they're off!








Hanging in there ...








Almost home ...









Another medal! [You'd have flared nostrils too if you just ran the longest race of your life and someone makes you stand still and say "cheesey"!]

Love the photos! And yes, your child is "hello kitty" cute. Makes me want to buy her a whole load of tomadachi stuff. E. says that Asian babies are the cutest. Not that he's biased, or anything :-)

I've been away from blogging for awhile - and lax on my running - but I'm back yet again.
