Who will tell whether one happy moment of love, or the joy of breathing or
walking on a bright morning and smelling the fresh air, is not worth all the
suffering and effort which life implies?
--Erich Fromm

Race: Beat the Clock 5K (3.1 Miles) 00:20:43

am 6 mi training run in the smog and partly cloudy gunk filled air. Then tonight at 11:30p I'll do the New Years Eve  Beat the Clock 5k at Sugar House Park.............Chow Boing!

This 5k was my 8th time to attend in the last 8 years straight. The ambient temp was 30 degrees. The race started pretty much on time and was well attended with about 275 runners. There was a slight breeze but it really made little or no difference in this hilly fun run. I got a fairly good start and stuck with my 5k running plan....start fast in the first mile, get faster in the second mile and in the third mile let whatever you've got left  go and get your butt to the finish line......

Life is whats happening, when you are making other plans.
--John Lennon

Happy New Year Everybody!!!
