10K? ok!

Well, it's about that time again...the BolderBoulder time! The mamasita will be joining me for the Memorial Day weekend as well as the 10k on Monday. As you can tell from this picture below, we are fiercely competitive athletes. I will be running in support of Oregon. She will represent the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. All of them.

So that should be a hoot! I want to do 5-6 minutes better than last year and make it under one hour. But that's ambitious. I think I can do it.

Also, I am planning on signing up for another 10k two weeks later, Run the Rockies.

It's a 10K up in the mountains where you from from Frisco to Copper. Or the other way around, I don't remember. So it could be totally sweet. Of course, it's largely downhill which is hard on my knees. And it's very early in the mountains requiring a crazy early drive worries. It shall be done. Assuming I sign up for it, that is.

In other news, I hate running. It is generally awful and very hard on your body. It is also very rewarding. The end.

I agree running sucks and is hard on the body (especially if you have two bad knees), I disagree that it is rewarding. It is necessary for me to not be a fat ass, but it is not fun or rewarding. I guess what I'm saying is, I will not be joining you on any 10k fun runs.
