back cove 5k series

last wednesday was race #6 in the back cove 5k series. it had been super hot and humid all day... i was really hoping it would rain to cool things off, but the sun stayed out all day and into the afternoon. kristal and i headed out just after 5 (its fun to car pool!) and we were pleasantly surprised when we got to the boulevard and there was a nice breeze. thank you mother nature! (that breeze seemed to die off right around race time, but all in all the race wasnt so bad heat wise). i needed to run 4 miles for training so she and i ran from her car to the port-a-potty then around a small loop, getting in 3/4ths of a mile before heading to the start (we had planned to do half a mile before the race and half a mile after, but this worked out well... i knew i wasnt going to want to run a lot after the race was over). 

we met up with a girl kristen who we had met the week before and chatted with her a little bit before the race started. i felt pretty good starting out and really tried not to look at my watch for pace, just ran again on feeling. i ended up walking a little just before mile 2 (maybe 10-20 seconds), and that helped power me for the last mile. i was kinda annoyed at myself when i crossed the finish line 6 seconds slower than my time in the race from last week, but oh well. im not looking to "pr" all these races, just glad im out there. when i crossed the finish line my watch showed 3.88 miles, so we only had a very small ways to go to get to 4 miles. kristal and i took off and when my watch read 4 miles we stopped and walked to the car. 

the end.

  2. Good job in such hot weather! I can't carry a water bottle no matter how hot it is.

  3. You are such a rock star. Henry must be so proud of his momma.

  4. Mine is a difficult situation, at best. In serious, deep love with a man who is married and I am married as well. Both of us in unhappy marriages, found eachother by accident, but the attration was so intense, so deep, it developed into love. As he has so much more to loose than me, being a woman, the obstacles were too great for him to jump over, so we both decided it was best to stop our relationship beifre it became a mess. Heartbroken, I went to Dr.ZACK BALO for help. I cannot live without the touch, voice or heart of this man with me. I’ve been miserable without him. I asked Dr.ZACK BALO to help me and the day he cast the spell, I ran into him in the street. After months of being apart, we never talked about our romance, we only talked business. (We have a business realtionship we have to deal with) He acted like a schoolboy in love and even kissed me on the lips in public!! I nearly died. I called him on the cell phone a few minutes later and he all of a sudden he starts telling me that he misses me, he cant resist me and he wants to see me. The spell. It’s not that he didnt love me before, but we decided not to take our relationship further and stuck to it. He stuck to it harder than I did!! For 3 months I couldnt get him to come back to me without worry and now I didnt even get my talisman yet and he’s talking like this, a way in which he didnt for a long time after we broke up. I gave him bait but he never took it until now. I know it’s the spell. Dr.ZACK BALO is amazing. We spoke again a day later and he was again, very romantic and talking to me as if we never broke up again. I love this person so much, it’s painful. I want us to be in love and worry free and Dr.ZACK BALO will make it happen. I will re-post when I get my final results. You are safe with Dr.ZACK BALO. I feel so comforted by this guestbook and just by my own experiences. Thank You Dr.ZACK BALO, Thank you email to contact him is
