Thin Mint Sprint


I have an important announcement to make: My first race video is DONE! It took much longer than I expected, but I've finally managed to finish editing the video from my first race in my 12 races in 12 mos extravaganza. I did a 5k called the Thin Mint Sprint to celebrate the start of Girl Scout Cookie season. I get hungry just thinking about it.  Cookies...yum...Ok I'm back! Here is that video:

I figured I would finish this post by answering some commonly asked questions about the race:

Q: Where did you get the Asians?
A: Asia

Q: But really where did they come from?
A: Korea. 

Q: Did that girl scout really beat you?
A: I don't want to talk about it. 

Q: How long did it take you to finish?
A: 29:57. I was really proud of that time for about two weeks until I was informed that a  5k was only 3.1 miles. For the longest time I thought it was 3.5, which would be a great inprovement on my normal treadmill speed. Tragic.

Q: Do you actually hate Boy Scouts?
A: No. Some of my best friends are boy scouts.

Q: Do you hate Obama?
A: Hate is such a strong word. And he's pretty hot for a president. 

Q: Why did you choose this race?
A: I thought there was a cookie eating contest after. 

Q: What did you do when you found out there wasn't?
A: I had my own. I won. 

Thanks for watching! And reading.....
