Oh Sweet Victory!

Dear 4 miles-

I kicked your trash today.  You may have kicked mine in return, but at least it was an equal match.  Let's do this again sometime?

Looking forward to it,

Oh yes, ladies and gentleman.  I finally had myself a run at 6.0 mph.  I ran at an exact ten-minute mile for 4 miles.  I know for some of you crazies out there that this is slow for you, but MAN!  I have been looking forward to this day for a while now.  My 5k time was 30:27.  That is a PR for me by several minutes.  I'm sure today was a fluke, but I am totally going to enjoy it while I can.  It's all about celebrating the victories!

Tonight I will be biking 8 miles.  It has poured rain every night for the last few nights.  Here's hoping it doesn't repeat tonight!  I'm hoping for a nice, fun, and dry run!

Also, in the spirit of sharing things, I should also mention that I have eaten half a Cinnabon, a 1/4 slice of cake, a fruit rollup, and something else sweet that I can't remember at the moment.  Ummm, yeah.  Sweets overload at work today and apparently I just can't stay away.  But, I'm counting the calories and I'm within the zone.  So yeah...there's that?

What are you up to this evening?  Have you fallen victim to sweets at work lately?  Tell me about it in the comments!
