Spud on wheels!

So I got tired of waiting for my reward for completing the 5km and went out and bought myself a bike :P I didn't ride it, don't have a lock for it, but wanted to buy it because it was on sale and it's purple :P I need to get the seat and handlebars adjusted and get all the bits oiled. I think shopping for it was almost as much fun as buying it. The downside is trying to stick it in my car is going to be an issue. Fits great into John's Honda Fit (hence the name, everything fits in there) but my Echo is going to be fun. I could probably take the front tire off, but the brakes are kind of in the way. Well, I'll have to give it a "shove it in the trunk" test run at some point.

Alex is in full packing and moving mode, so she's going to be sore and she's going to miss Thursday night's run with the running room peeps, but that's not bad considering all the runs I missed throughout the year!

I think our run last week was 4.4km and this week we're going up to 4.8km. I am 200% certain that I will reach my goal of finishing the 5km and I think I'll probably do it in about 50 to 60 mins. Apparently the power walkers can finish it in 40 mins LOL I know it's scary how they can kick ass, but that's ok, my first goal was just to finish... next year, I can cut my time in half *hopefully* and the year after I might train for the 10km if I do well enough with the 5km.

  1. Honestly, I'll be pooped enough from moving I'd be happy to crawl to the finish, lol.
    I'm sure we can walk it if running is too much. We may end up walking a lot of it just because of all the people! How does anybody get into a real run pace with thousands of people in your way?!
