Well, the Cherry Tree's weren't blossoming, that's for sure. It was cold, windy, and rainy most of the time I was in DC. The rain subsided for the race, which was nice, so it wasn't so bad once the blood got pumpin'. I didn't get the results I wanted... finished in 1:23:48, which was almost 4 minutes slower than I was shooting for. Perhaps it has something to do with my large, bublus stomach.
Woke up Sunday morning around 5am and got ready. made it downtown by about 6:30, got to the race area around 7, crossed the start line around 8:06 and crossed it again around 9:30. Spent the rest of the morning, afternoon, evening, and night eating and drinking. Hit the sack around 1am and slept like a baby.
Stutz had a better pace than I did, which was kind of disappointing, but when you look at the REAL way race paces should be measured, I kicked his ace. The real way is not simply minutes per mile, but minutes per mile-pound. My final weight-pace was 0.037 m/M*lb, where as ole Stutzenator was at 0.044. Talk about a slow-poke... sheesh. My final place was 2348 out of 8516. Not bad for a fatty.
Overall, I'm happy with the run. It was a good practice for the mini coming up next month. This month, I'm going to try and keep the training in high gear and shed a few pounds. I am really looking forward to May 7th. Indy really does it up right for this race. They pack so much entertainment along the race course that it's borderline ridiculous. The only entertainment along the course at the Cherry Blossom was the jiggly-butt girl that was in front of me for a mile or so and the dude Irwin saw taking a shit.

sorry i didn't call you dude, forgot to write down your number and didn't have numbers to the other dudes.
also, took the dog for a run last night, because he was spazzing out and wouldn't calm down. we ran about a quarter mile, and the dog had to stop to shit, and i remembered why i don't run. from now on, instead of short runs, i'll just take him for long walks (on the beach).
