On the Doak piece, my Obama song came on.  Yes we can.  My two sons and I ran.  My littlest, did the quarter mile in 1:59.  The oldest was a 42:00 5K because if he can’t be first…well, he doesn’t want to do it.  We’ll work on that later.  🙂


I’m happy.  It was fun.  Someone said it was only 2.99 and I looked at my watch with less than 30 minutes for the first time, and I was psyched.   I mapped it on Runner’s World, and it indeed was 3.1 with the last lap in the stadium, and I’m going with that.  A 9:40 pace.  YAY.


Everyone’s at Jamba Juice with celebratory smoothies.  My 17 year old neice ran her first 5K with us.  Good times.

  1. Good job on the run. Sounds like it was a fun one! Oh, and I love the Obama song but have never run with it. Might have to give that a try!

  2. Chris, I would have never thought it would be a good running song, but it just inspired me on the course!
