Half marathon -

Christine and I ran our first half marathon on Sunday, starting from my actual work office in downtown Alexandria. We were so lucky to have the beautiful weather - usually on Memorial Day weekend, it is sweltering. We are crazy people. My kind of goal was to run at faster than 10 minute pace, but Christine and I blew by that, I did it at 9:41 pace and Christine did it in in a crazy 9:29 pace. A little more than 2 hours of running. So proud of ourselves, we placed in the top third of our age group. I could not have done it without my running partner meeting up everyday at 5:45 in the morning.

You gals are AWESOME. I can barely mow my lawn in under an hour. And, after the drought I got rid of half of my front yard. Guess I've got something to shoot for this summer. Way to go ladies!!

Good job! Doris!

We can not run any more and today we walked for an hour after supper.

We find a indoor swimming pool opens to public about 10 miles away.
