May 6, 2012: Like the Alderman’s run, this was a nice run through a local Park. Good shade, no traffic to deal with, got smoked by a local cross country team. I also felt very sluggish in this race. I was pumped going in, but for whatever reason I just didn’t feel myself. I think my body was fighting an infection, I just wasn’t showing any usual symptoms. Regardless, I finished in 29:12 and beat my doctor by at least seven minutes. I believe that means I’m cured! In all honesty, while I didn’t do my best, I can’t complain about a 5k finish in under 30 minutes. Great event in support of lung transplants and organ donation.
P.S. I feel I look pretty badass in this pic with my trademark headband
