No post from me today. I'm off to the Great Aloha Run. I wasn't going to do it. I really wasn't. Mike registered months ago. I registered today, finally talked into it at the last second by a man with long legs who promises he won't outrun me. Hopefully, I'll survive the 8 miles.
The racism debate continues throughout the blogosphere. See the previous post, click on the links, click on the commenters' links. It reminds me of a Faulkner novel about the nature of truth and reality. No two people see things the same way. My truth is different than yours which is different than the next person's and so on. Not that we can't agree on things, but our perceptions vary. This is not an excuse for inaction, or maintaining the status quo, simply an observation.
Peace and aloha.
Have fun Lynn… I have faith that you’ll make the 8 miles. 😉
Hope you made it! 🙂
Thanks, Cyn and Carol! I made it. I surprised myself by running about 7 miles of it, with about a mile of walking dabbled in here and there. Of course, there was the opening fiasco, where I went to the bathroom and Mike said he’d wait RIGHT HERE for me. When I got back, no Mike. And there were only 22,000 people running. :/
We found each other at the 3 mile mark, miraculously enough. He says he only moved 5 feet, but I didn’t see him at all. Ah well. We crossed the finish line together. He was true to his promise and went slow enough that I could keep up.
Dang, my joints hurt….
Do you still hurt??? Remember you did not have to do it. LOL
