  1. When my last 5K left me 19 seconds away from an under-30 time, I vowed to get back at it, shave the seconds off, and announce my arrival into the 20s. So I signed up for an evening run on a golf course (flat, with mix of grass and paths). Here's how it went down...
  2. In my last race, I started too quickly and couldn't hang on. This time, I wanted to control the pace at the start and finish with a strong push. But after mile 1, I was about 20 seconds off. I hung on and felt like I ran a much steadier race than my 30:19, but ended up actually losing two minutes and blowing my goal.
  3. I mean no harm to Yoda.
  4. My friend (and killer runner) Sue Meier posted this photo (from I <3 Run) on my Facebook Wall with the following message: "Geez, stop the obsession with the sub-30! It will happen. Train, Race, Repeat."
  5. Gotcha, coach! Why does this drawing looks like a pancake and a sausage patty?
  6. Hopeless, absolutely hopeless...
