Saturday night I ran/walked the Torchlight 5k in downtown Seattle, as part of Seattle's tribute to pirates and pirattitude, the Seafair Festival. It was a little humbling to realize that my fitness level does not yet include "whipping out a 3 mile run," but it was fun nonetheless, thanks to my friend Marie. She's trying to work up to running, and I'm trying to get back into it, so we were a perfect match. We did step it up for the final mile to pass the gimpy grandpa (good for him for running though), and finished under 37 minutes. Thanks Marie, next race we'll be running the whole thing!
