Yes….. The 10K went well. Saturday Megan and I ran the “Rock’N Roll” 10K in Prospect Park with 6000 other people and our supporters Kate, Sarah, Billy, Eliane, and Zeus (Billy’s dog). I’ve never run in a race this big before and it was a challenge. Just too many people I kept having to jump up on to the grass to pass people and stay on pace. I wish I would have been a little faster I finished the race in 54 minutes. I included a map below to show you the course. It’s not quite two laps of the park but its pretty close. The guy that won the race ran the 6.27 miles in 28 minutes which I find to be completely insane. I saw him pass the crowed at a devilish speed. It was a good race Megan and I both felt good about it.

I included at the end of this post a better pic of the newly painted spare room. Please enjoy.

This weekend was truly exhausting. Kate and I repainted the spare room in the apartment. It was a blood read before painted by the pervious tenants. It looks like they must have stole a can of paint from a homeless man then just throw it at the wall with their eye closed. Even the picture below shows what an incredibly bad job they did. We used Benjamin Moore Aura which is amazing. If you ever have to paint a room please use this paint. It almost did the job in a single coat. Very impressed. The room is a clean light grey now and it makes a world of difference. Come on by and check it out. I’ll take a better shot with the wide angle this weekend when it’s nice and sunny.

We also participated in a 5K in the Bronx this weekend. It was to help me prepare for my 10K on the 22nd (this Saturday). I wasn’t repaired for the off road running that was this 5K. All up hill all on gravel. I have to say I much prefer the asphalt loop around the park. No chance of my old skateboard ankles going out.
