in a perfect world of yancies: I Can Run!

23 September 2008

I Can Run!

Emily and I arrived early and lined up on Sunday to run in the Fremont Oktoberfest Brew Ha-Ha 5k. And I finished it, too!

They gave us these cute chips, so my better-than-expected-even-if-less-than-stellar time was very accurately recorded:
I finished in 26:17. 241st place! Woo!

Emily was right behind me, at 26:23.
Before you start worrying about how I got in front of her, please note that she was 22nd out of the 150 women ages 30-39, whereas I was 55th out of the 124 30-39 year-old dudes. Healthy bit of perspective, that.

Complete results here.

Here's an action shot:

Cloudy, yes, but luckily (?) it didn't start raining until after the race.

But that didn't stop us from sampling some of the beer at the Oktoberfest.

I hope you like that cute mug as much as I do.

I did feel a little bad for the people who had to fill them . . .

Cheers, reader.


  1. Sounds like great fun—and what a clever name for the event!

    Congratulations, Emily!


  2. That little mug is positively ADORABLE!

    Kudos to both of you!
