The 21st Annual Rustic Run

Chad and I headed to the 21st Annual Rustic Run last Saturday. We got up at 5am to drive to Lost Nation and take on the likes of John Gilroy. I had a great time running the race, the Rustic Run is really a great race. I was a little slow, 4 minutes off my PR and 3 minutes slower than the last time I ran it, but still managed about a 7:20 pace and finished 24th overall. I will add that Jeremy Dunlavey was there, in shape, running way more than I have been obviously, and he beat me. Motivation for next year.

After not placing in my age group for the run, I decided to enter in the Duck Race. Chad and I bought a couple of ducks and away they went.

A large group of the ducks hit the rapids at the same time. My duck crossed in 2nd place, you can see him heading over the rapids up there just ahead of the group. He earned me a cool 20 bucks.

Margaret and Renee came to the Rustic Run and walked the route. Afterwards we went out to Chad's house where Victor cooked up steak and veggies like a damn magician on the grill. It was delicious.
They had some puppies at the parade they were giving away. I really wanted to take this one home. She was a hound mix and would have made an execellent friend for Dizzle. I got the big N-O from the boss however.
