Spring Thaw 10 Miler

I ran the Spring Thaw 10 Miler on Saturday. It was a beautiful day out for running. The run was down along the Missouri River, a little windy, but warm. It went pretty good. I kept just at 8min pace for 10 mi. Tom Benzoni is with me above in this photo, one of the other ER docs in our group. He might be almost 52, but he finished far ahead of me in the race. I've got a little work to do if I ever plan to run with him.

OGB came to the race. She was supposed to walk in the 5K with her mom, but she had a long night the night before. See that smile there during the day? She has the same smile from about Midnight to 4am except with two horns. Let's just say she hasn't been sleeping at night.

Just after I finished the run, with a nice senior photo style pose in front of the Seargent Floyd Welcome Center.

Next Race? The Doughnut Run. Ames, IA. Me, 3.1 mi and Krispy Kremes. I think a few people will be joining me, including Tate Featherstone.

In other sad news, Village Inn declared bankruptcy and closed many of its stores. They closed both stores in Sioux City, one which was by my house. I love Village Inn. Dammit. They closed citing the poor economy for the main reason. I'll give you my wife's quote on this, "Great, now we don't have a Village Inn, all thanks to George Bush." That made me laugh.

Brandt Schnedeker is a bad golfer and has girl hair. At least that is what my four year old son says.
