Well, I did run in the Race for the Cure on Sunday, I just didn’t run the 5K I thought I would be running in.

I was stuck in traffic for over a half hour just to get a parking spot. At the time that the starting gun went off for the competitive 5k, I had just parked my car and was about to make my way to the starting line, over a mile away. I ran the whole way to the starting line to make it just in time for the starting gun to go off for the non-competitive 5k run. So, I ran well over 4 miles rather than a little over 3. What my time was, I have no idea; but I also wasn’t counting on beating last year’s time since I wasn’t training as much for the race as I did last year.

A little pick me up for the disappointment of missing the start of the race was finishing the fringe and fulling this:

It feels soooo nice now that it is fulled. I am pretty happy with the outcome. Hope the winner will be too!
