Read 50 books in 2005
Less than half

I didn’t even come close to reading 50 books last year. Maybe it was too ambitious, but I’m trying again this year. Gotta force myself back into the rhythm of reading regularly, especially fiction.

Chuy's 5K

I finished the Chuy’s Hot to Trot 5K on Saturday and am feeling great. I entered in the “fun run” category, so I don’t have an official time. I wasn’t paying very close attention, but I crossed the starting line 2 minutes into the race, and the finish clock listed 43 minutes and some seconds. So my time was roughly 41 minutes, I think.

Which I am very happy with. I was feeling pretty good near the end, even picked up my pace a bit and could have run further. The first half mile was pretty hilly, and I found myself running more than I had planned. The second mile I slowed down probably more than I needed to. I had never run more than 2 miles, so I was worried about just finishing without injury and without feeling totally exhausted.

Looking forward to another race in the future.

Moonlight Margarita Run

Another upcoming run that sounds fun is the Moonlight Margarita Run, but I will probably be at WWDC that week. The run starts at sunset and ends with Tex-Mex food and mariachi music.
