It turns out I like jogging. I've done it both on treadmills, tracks and the road. In 2005, when I started jogging, I said that I wanted to do a 5K. It may seem like a rather long time to finally get to the goal of 3.1 miles when people run much further on a daily basis. But for me, overweight, active but not athletic, and a former long-distance bicyclist, it was a challenge.
So last weekend I participated in the "Trout Run" as part of Livingston Manor's Trout Parade. I got a little nervous because they allowed 45 minutes for the 5K and my best time to date was 46 minutes.
I know I'm slow, but I made it and improved my time by three minutes! I'm in costume (an apron and tongs) because my only association with trout is cooking and eating them. I have a house in "Trout Town, USA" but I still haven't gotten around to fly fishing.
