Get Gusto 5K

So, it's June and this is San Antonio and it's just hot.  And I'm not ready for it yet - and I'm tired all of the time.  And I can't stop using the word 'and.' 

But I did run the Get Gusto 5k - the first in a new series of 5 races that is the Carrerathon.  It wasn't pretty, but it was done.

yeah, I walked up the big hill and my finish time was pretty pathetic.
 But the beer was cold

and I was marketing the Women's 5k.  Which you should sign up for here:

Looks like we made it....

I love being almost famous, and I almost missed this one - until a college buddy sent me a message, and I dug the magazine out of recycling.  This magazine has featured many fellow alums, including Nancy Reagan, Barbara Bush, Sylvia Plath, Julia Child, and more.  When Tara and I ran the Hartford marathon last Fall, we joked that our 'dull' lives were not SQ worthy....well, here we go - we aren't First Ladies, haven't climbed Everest, and haven't (yet) written the next great American novel.....but we made it (this far).

Carrabas HM relay

I've been slacking - like crazily,sleeping like I have mono, tired. It's ridiculous.

But I ran the third leg of the Carrabas half marathon relay on Saturday

And it was horribly humid, but obviously, some of us did not leave it on the course and danced...

And posed

 My hairstylist extraordinaire!

And did stupid pet tricks

'cause we're serious runners. yepyepyep.
