Personal Best!!!

I did well in the Mini 10K this weekend. I didn't come close to beating Deena Kastor or anything like that, but I did a new personal best.

My friend G jumped in with me at the 4 mile mark and ran the last 2 miles with me to encourage me. What a friend!

The best part was during the 5th mile, when we saw a girl holding a poster on which she had scrawled, "Run, Bitch, Run!!" Everyone doubled over with laughter as they ran past it. I wish I'd gotten a photo.

I had a group of friends who cheered me on at the finish line. I was so fast that they almost missed me; I arrived about 5 minutes before they'd even started looking for me. I beat my previous personal best by almost a minute per mile!

Among the prizes in my free goodie bag were this temporary tattoo, which I wore with pride until it fell off yesterday.

THIRTYSOMETHING (!!) year old Asian American New Yorker, lawyer, amateur musician, curious girl taking a bite out of the Big Apple. Don't mess with me - I'm short and I look demure, but I carry a big purse. And I've just embarked on the journey of married life in Manhattan.
