I won

Jane and I ran in our first 5k this morning in Zanesville, IN. And I won my age division! It helped that I was the only one IN my age division. But still... I wasn't expecting to get anything besides a t-shirt. :)

There were only about 20 runners, and Jane and I ran together. We weren't near the top, but we weren't last either. It was a nice morning for a jog. I think we ran it in around 33 minutes. Just so you know what kind of competition we had - the overall winner only had one leg. At least I beat the winner of the male 70-79 division. But I got smoked by the female winner of my age division. It was pretty fun though. Hopefully we can run some more of these.

It actually made my back feel better too. After driving five and one half hours home from Buda yesterday, we got home at 4:45, and by 5 I was on the mower trying to get the yard done because there's a birthday party at the pavilion today for a 90 year old woman in our church. She was also the biggest donor to the pavilion project. Pretty cool. She brings me Almond Joy candy bars about twice a month. After mowing, and going out for supper, we went down to Rib Fest in the Fort, but we didn't pay to get in. We stood outside the fence for awhile, walked around downtown a bit, and watched the skaters at the skateboard park. We had to be at the race by 7:30 this morning, since we hadn't registered yet.

Well, better see if they need anymore help setting up for the birthday party. I just had a guy introduce me to his "husband." I think that might be the first time I've actually met a gay couple that were legally married. Hmm.

Haha... how many comments do you think I could get if I unloaded some old school prejudice here? I could be like "WHAT?! I'M OFFENDED AT THOSE GAY GUYS!!!" And everyone who goes to bed disappointed every night that they didn't find a liberal cause to defend would be like "EUREKA!" and start typing furiously, smoke coming from their keyboards--it would be like their birthday and Christmas rolled into one--I mean their birthday and WINTER HOLIDAY. Blogger would send you an e-mail that they don't have disk quotas per se, but that you were taking up more than your share of server space. Hahaha. Sometimes it's fun to think evil thoughts. Predictable people are fun to mess with.

Isaac,
I think I'll pass on the mini for now.

MR,
Well, thanks for not unloading. :)
