"Crim de la Crim"

I am not what you call a motivated runner. This is ironic considering my father has literally run around the world...almost twice!! He's been running since he was 28.

I like to run, I just have a hard time getting in to that mental frame of mind I need to be in. I easily distract myself with thoughts of the other things I need to accomplish during the next hour, day, week and year. I'm hoping to work on this problem.

Anyway, Jennie convinced me that I needed to sign up for the Crim this year. The Crim is a festival or races held every August in Flint, MI. I agreed to do the 5K. My goal was to break 30 minutes, which I am happy to report I did! My time this year was 29:48--a goal to beat for the next one. Jennie did awesome...beat me by almost a minute!
