I was excited when I heard that VM World had a 5K this morning, I wasn't excited when I found out they wanted $110 to run it.  I decided it would be a funner run to just run the same 12 miles I've done for the last week, which actually follows about 1/2 of the 5K route I found out this morning.  No runners were there yet just the setup people but at least I felt like I was running a race in slow motion.

I had considered going 15 today, but this cold is kickin' my trash so I just ran the usual 12 mile out and back.  I wonder if running with a cold is as good as training as a long run without nutrition cause is sure feels the same.

It's been a long time since I was on the first page of the mileage board.

$110 for a 5K... that is just unbelievable.
