  • Running:
    • 0:03:00 || 0.2 mi (+7 pts) Warmup
    • 0:38:19 || 5.5 km (+310 pts) This is well under my goal of 39 minutes for a 5k distance, and my second run at 39 or under. Very pleased about this.

Weight: 186.5 when I got up; was down to 185.5 after the run, probably due to need to re-hydrate.

I grew up in New England, moved to the Carolinas in '98 to start working at what was then a large regional bank and is now a really big nationwide bank. I work doing intranet content management and intranet site management. After work, I practice Aikido, knit, ride my motorcycle, read, watch movies & eat. I've been studying Aikido since 2014, and I ride an old Honda Shadow. Someday I want to go skydiving, and I am pretty sure that I want to hike the Appalachian Trail someday.
