So, I did Nancy's "10K on the 10th" today, the 7th, because I would like to do a long run on Saturday, and I know the RD is understanding of such conflicts, so I went ahead and got my race in this evening. My race went pretty well, and the splits were as follows:
Total Time: 58:42
I know the RD doesn't divide results by Age Group, but something I forgot to mention about the Disney 15K was that that was my first race in a new AG: So long 25-29, hello 30-34 group! So, on the Disney results page, it listed my placement in my AG, but it didn't tell me how many were in the group; thus, in my book, it had no meaning. As I said, I know this virtual race won't list us by Age Group, but I do consider it my second race in the 30-34 age range -- in my book, this AG now rocks because of my presence!
In other news, I did a whole lotta nuthin today. It was glorious. I finished reading Franzen's "The Corrections" and thought it was excellent. It deserves a lot of serious literary criticism and analysis, all of which I will spare you from here, so I will merely say that it was an astounding novel. But after such serious reading, I felt the need for some "brain candy" and I went to the bookstore in search of some light reading. I picked up Stephanie Meyer's "The Host" and Jen Lancaster's new memoir "Such a Pretty Fat." For those who may still be unfamiliar with Lancaster, go hop over to her blog and laugh your head off; I credit her with adding such gems as "asshat" and "fucktard" to my vocabulary. I started with her book this evening, and it's such fast, easy reading (and seriously, it is hil-ar-i-ous) that I've already read 100 pages, and I'm pretty sure it will be polished off by tomorrow (despite those two pesky classes I have to teach in the morning).
And that's pretty much been my day. Now, I have some more reading to do and some "Top Chef" to watch. Toodles!
