    You were right Dr. Mika; I have a sprained Achilles tendon. I do hope to actually start my couch to 5 k soon, but right now it is RICE. Boo.

    Thanks for the heads up. Mrs Jedimika ended up doing this one with me (walking). She was impressed by how tough the course was. And I was impressed by how much pizza they had. Even though we finished at the end there was still lots of pizza (Pizza Hut) left, enough that people were going back for multiple slices and multiple trips.

    Less than a week before the IHR Toys for Tots/Poker Run Tuesday night the 8th. Weather permitting I plan to be there. I haven't done much running this Summer because of the heat so I'll be doing a lot of walking.

    Stang it.
    Maybe....
    I was at PT (for the ankle) and I pulled another muscle further up that same leg-- so now I am doing two PTs. It's frustrating-- but hopefully I can at least walk a 5k.

    Was a good run last night. I did better than I thought with all the walking I did, a shade over 34 minutes. I didn't hang around after for the final numbers tally for the toys and cash but I'll keep an eye on their social media.
    Next run might be the Kicking Butt 5K on August 26. It's down at the waterfront which I'm not into but work has a team so I could go out and rep them and show I'm a Team Player at work. Always looks good at evaluation time.

    Good! Less likely I'll back out then.

    Like your runs with a helping of EDM? There's another fun run company bringing their game to Louisville this Saturday night.
    https://nightnationrun.com/louisville/

    Speaking of Saturday are you still in Relin? Things still look good for me. I have to get a group photo with my coworkers at 0830 (well I don't HAVE to but it will be good to document I was there). Then I plan to do the run at 0900. The walk starts at 0910. Which were you going to do?

    Pretty good run. Got to hang a bit with Relin, got my work credit, got to see some new sights. Weather was perfect-65 and sunny (could have been about 10 more degrees colder for me) and there were already a lot of people out taking advantage when I arrived early at 0730 (I was concerned about parking in the area). The run started kinda late but it took us past some areas I haven't been to before--the UofL rowers facility and a wharf/dock I didn't know about. And even though I jogged and Relin walked I saw him on the turn around and was able to get a high five from him. I overheated and had to walk quite a bit and finished in 31:44 so I wasn't too happy but it was a nice morning outing anyway.

    Well I missed the Gaslight 5K this year (the weather was iffy anyway) but I'm looking at doing the GreatPumpkin 10K on Sat Sept 30.

    I'm not really in shape for a 10K and the weather will probably be pretty warm still but it's at the Parklands which is really pretty so I don't mind having to walk quite a bit.

    Did the Great Pumpkin 10K this weekend and finished in 1:10:16 which was okay considering how little prep I've had. Weather was cool and crisp and the scenery was real nice and you even got a finishers medal at the end. Nothing really on my running radar until Thanksgiving right now.

    Welp, doesn't look like I'll be getting a RunDisney Kessel Run medal for my 50th birthday. They've shut down the west coast races. They say it's because of current and future construction for Star Wars Land but rumor is it's because Disney and the city of Anaheim are on the outs with each other.

    I guess I could do the Dark Side challenge in Orlando by itself in 2019 but it's not the same.

    Clear and a cold 30 degrees for the 47th (wow!) YMCA Turkey Trot this year. I did the 10K and I did okay. My first 5K was good but after that I had to walk quite a bit and finished in 1:06:17. No runs coming up this winter so that probably does it for a while.

    Thanks for posting that link. I'll have to keep an eye on it.
