Tuesday already?

Holy Yikes, time is flying. It has been busy, crazy at work (which is good because I was getting a little nervous last week).

The weather has tanked as far as cross country skiing is concerned, I can’t remember a winter this mild...yes, you can thank me. I’m guessing it is because I bought all that ski and snowshoe equipment. You’re welcome!!

Sunday was a GREAT day as far as running was concerned....it was one of the best, mildest running days in the 28 year history of the Richmond Road Race.  I had a blast meeting up with old and now new friends...yes I finally got to meet Yannick of EndorphinBuzz.  He is a speedy speedster and super nice!!!

Since the Wooo Hooo’s were running in the 10K,  I ran the 5K with my friend Treena from Bimble

(I ended up #58 of 96 women at a 6:41 pace finishing up at 0:33:23, this was not a chip time, just the old fashioned right it down on a clip board, which is just fine with me).

The representatives were there for the Kilt Run in June and believe it or not I know a couple of the organiser’s....I think I’ll need to get a hotel room in June for after, there will be adult BevERages involved after that race, I’m sure of it.... 

Anyway, I’m here stealing company time so I’ll leave you with the photo links of the race...I can’t scoop any photo’s, they got all high tek and I can’t copy any photo’s....*sniff*  but look for me....bib number 323!  I'm killing myself laughing (as usual)...oh and that's Dave running in his kilt....

Have a great day and remember,

Life's fun if you don't weaken,

Lily

Great job on the race. I thought you ran the 10K in 33:23 and I was going to be blow out of the water! Your time was fantastic and shows how hard you have been working in training.

Xenia said...

Haha! You notice how everyone turned around to watch your friend Dave run by. They were all hoping for an up-kilt moment. :)

Nice job at the race. Loving the new look of the blog! I agree race photo people need stop posting pictures of us we can't take!

Amy said...

Hi Lily! I was the finish line photographer. I love the fact that you were smiling in the pictures...not too many people do that. Send me an email and I'll send you your photos.

You do look happy in the photos!

EndorphinBuzz said...

It was fun to finally meet you too :)

I'm glad your pictures turned out so nice. I was too fast for my personal photographer and the official picture is me looking at the pavement... What was I thinking, this is no way to finish a race!?!
