we ran a 5k this weekend! besides that, i worked out twice and hit two miles each time, which brings my weekly mileage to a not-impressive, but not-bad-for-me seven miles.

one of my 2012 goals was to run five 5k races and we only have one more left {a christmas-themed one in late december}. this saturday we knocked out the kooky, spooky 5k in golden.

it was 20 degrees when we left the house at 7 a.m. and only got colder as we drove further into the mountains. once the sun came out and we started running, though, we quickly worked up a sweat. the course was really beautiful, and we even had an audience: a cow and her baby. she was loudly mooing the entire time.

official times haven't been posted yet, but we think we ran it in about 41 minutes. this is actually pretty good for us, at least in mountain air. when i make jokes about the lack of air, it sounds funny, but it is true! it's especially frustrating when you're trying to be active. you literally can be breathing as intense as you can and still cannot get enough air. i have a coworker who moved from south carolina and she promises that after a full year you can finally feel yourself adjusting.

and hey,.. we are only three months away from being in denver for a full 365!
