Forty-nine days. Day four.

Track at Einstein Middle School Seattle Shoreline Washington

And on this morning I had the opportunity to run on a real track and time my mile. I came in at a pace of 11 minutes, and I feel pretty good about that. The minimum pace for the 5K in January is a 16-minute mile, so no worries about that. And even at my current level I’m confident that I can finish a 5K run (3.1 miles). That’s pretty righteous for a girl who started out with a 60-second stretch of running alternating with 90 seconds of running–just six weeks ago.

A little chalk art I spied on my way off the track. Things are moving UP.

Tamara the Trapeze Lady at the Pink Door, Seattle, Washington

At one o’clock I met my lovely friend, Elizabeth for our traditional holiday lunch at the Pink Door. I love the Pink Door–for the tasty food of course, but more so for the eccentric environs. This week for lunch hour, Tamara the Trapeze Lady was performing, and I was looking forward to the added merriment. Lunch was lovely, even if we left an oil stain on the table.

And on the way home I found Tiberio at his house. This never happens any more. Cool.
