Just Kidding

So maybe 2007 is not over quite yet. My brother and I are doing the Turkey Trot 8k in Charlotte on Thanksgiving. This is the month of "off season", right.

Well Brother said he might do handsprings and sommersaults the whole way. In other words, jsut for fun without looking at a watch. Well I have a little bit different plan. My goal is to get down to an 8:00 mile. Since this year I was comforatbale at a 9:00 pace, it's a stretch, but I want it. And since I am a brat, I get what I want! So with the pacing of the brother I am going to run the 8k to see how far away I am from that goal pace. Now please note that the last time I swam was 10/15. The last long run I did was the marathon. Well that basically was my last workout in general...until this week. I have hit the treadmill a few times and will keep it up until Thanksgiving. Here's hoping...

Gobble! Gobble!

You be careful on that knee...and save room for the pie.
You're going to kick my butt at next year's 10k.
