Great under-the-radar 5k coming up this weekend -- the Rock 'n Run 5k at the NC Music Factory. I'm running it and hope some of you who aren't on the disabled list will too. Last year I was 20:29... this year it will be a miracle if I can break 21 minutes. Probably more like 22:00 since I haven't run fast in a couple weeks. It's a fast course though.
If you go be sure to buy one or more raffle tickets if they're doing that this year. I was kicking myself last year for not buying any. The raffle was after the awards and most people had already left. They were giving big screen TVs and all kinds of unbelievable stuff and they'd just keep calling out numbers until somebody was there. Of course things might be different this year.
Last year John Ahrens (WSOC weatherman) did the awards and was fantastic at it... best awards ceremony of the year.

That race looks interesting. Maybe...
Been out of town at camps the last week and have been very active outdoors but very little running. Back home now, though, and a good run this morning.
I have a love/hate relationship with running. I do it, but sometimes I love to hate it.
