Another Weekend

Concerning last weekend, Friday was preparation day, and Sunday was the day of recovery. So lets just talk about Saturday.

Saturday began with the “Get Your Rear in Gear 5k”. The funds gathered by this run went to colon cancer research. They still haven’t posted the results from this race. Here’s the results from last years race. I have no idea why I am linking to last years results. Maybe I am quietly hoping they will magically turn into this years results. Actually I just like to confuse my readers. My time was around 27:50. This is about as good as I can do with my current body. My fastest time in an official 5k race was 22:56, back in 2002. How the mighty have fallen.

After a little bit of rest, I went on a work related field trip out to the western Twin Cities. A fruitful trip that I can’t really comment on.

After a frozen pizza dinner, then a beer at Gordies, I went to Lakeshore Players Theatre to watch “Taming of the Shrew”. I know the Stage Managers of that play, so I was able to get a reserved isle seat. Nice play. Parts of my brain were being used that hadn’t been used in a while. Kind of painful… but no pain, no gain. I was even somewhat inspired to become an actor. That didn’t last long.

After the play, I dragged these stage managers to the Flame Bar in Willernie. Coincidently, when entering the Flame Bar, there was an actual flamer entering the bar. All right, this person, was one of the stage managers. This particular openly gay person is the nephew of Fred Phelps! Oh, I do love irony. I hope Uncle Fred likes the taste of sweet, sweet irony as well.

Update: Results from the Colon Cancer Coalition Run-Get Your Rear in Gear 5k race are in. Nine minute miles… yuck.

  1. I think with my current body (love that term) I’d have to stop every two minutes to breathe for five. I’m impressed not only that you run, but that you run for good causes.

    1. Thanks! Saturday was good day. Maybe even great. Besides having fun, I had a sense of fulfillment at the end of the day. I need more days like that.

      BTW, love the red hair. Especially this pic. Has a devilish look to it. Now do you feel the pictures are bringing out the full red? Also looks like the diet is doing well!
