Today's race was run to "I Can't Quit Her" and "Spinning Wheel" by Blood, Sweat, and Tears. I was reminded of this band the other day when Tucker and I were lying on the floor of his room, looking at his Woodstock poster. I haven't listened to them since I was maybe 12 or 13 years old, but I sure remembered the words, and boy oh boy do I love the horns in their songs!
So yeah, I ran a 10K today. I didn't go all out, as I have a sore hamstring. But I finished and think the clock time was 54 minutes and I'm really happy with that.
Funny thing: (already posted on dailymile, but in case you're not logging miles there...) there ws a girl with wild Hawaiian print shorts who was ahead of me the entire race. Any time I got into her peripheral vision, she'd speed up. After the 6 mile mark I started going faster. As I came even with her, she shouted "Oh no you don't!" and sped up. I called "You're welcome!" after her. Then she must have slowed slightly because we crossed the finish line with her maybe half a step ahead of me. I was not racing her, but she was definitely racing me!
