Last week was bad. Last week I didn't run, and it took me almost three hours and 45 minutes in the hottest shower I could manage to get to work one day. While I was trying to get to work with my back sounding like a bag of popcorn in the microwave, I finally realized I am one of those sick people and, even though I ignore pain - there is a point where it finally tackles you. So, crap, this makes me angry - better just keep running - but this 'flare' stuff does NOT amuse me.
So - back to last weekend - I ran the Revenge of the Nerds 5k. My back was angry, but my buddy/race director, LauraC, really did a really nice job on this race.
Thanks to Ceci, Dulce, Michele, and Red for the pics (hope I'm not forgetting anyone). Red took most of the finish-line pics, which are really funny in motion.
