A busy, busy weekend

Saturday, Nov 12th, found me back out on my bike and riding around the bay. A different group of five people joined me, and we made it around the bay much, much faster this time. Geez, my legs were sore.

Sunday, Nov 13th, found me running in the Shelter Island 5k. (Why do these things always start so early?) It was beautiful running along the harbor, watching the sun come up and the morning fog burn away. The scenery was a definite high point of the 5k. And the other great moment? When I crossed the finish line, the announcer called out my name. They did that for everyone, and it was so cool to hear. I came in at 33:27, which is three minutes faster than my Chicago time.

And now I begin to focus on the half-marathon next week in Austin.
