Just finished a pre-Peachtree run [+ 1 mile] starting at the BIG Peach on Peachtree to Piedmont Park. Today is the Gay Pride thing in Piedmont Park, so… that was interesting. I mean, there are always a lot of those types down there but today the place was crawling with them. YIKES!

The run was 7.2 miles total [it is a mile from the BIG Peach to Lenox]. I felt OK about the run. It was pretty low key. Sponsored by Rebook and the BIG Peach. They had a trivia game [about the Peachtree Road Race] before the run and I won a radio. Woo Hoo!

My time was pretty off 1:19. Last year I finished in just at an hour. But the course felt so easy today compared to last year [even my running partner said so] that I would have thought my time to be better. Up until last year I had done NO hill work whatsoever in my life, but while we were in training for the ING GA Marathon this winter and early spring we ran those hills at the Rock and Heartbreak Hill [at Piedmont Hospital] doesn’t even begin to compare to that!

I stopped during the run to spin the big wheel at Caribou Coffee and won a tin of mints — maybe that’s why my time was off. Ha Ha Ha Ha

When we got back to the BIG Peach they gave us a drink bottle [like I need another drink bottle– I just got finished cleaning out my “drink bottle” cabinet a few days ago and threw a bunch away] and a training journal. I need to use that, but I probably wont.

I’ve gained like 20 lbs. [and it’s not even Christmas!] That’s one reason my times lately have been so bad. That’s like running with 2 1/2 gallons of milk. I’ve got to work on getting rid of that 2 1/2 gallons! It won’t happen quickly. It’s crept on slowly, since that marathon in March, so I expect it will take a few months to get rid of. I’ve set myself a goal of 5 lbs. a month for the next 4 months.

I probably won’t run again until the end of next week. Hopefully we will be doing a good bit of hiking on Monday – Wednesday though. Mt. Hood here we come!
