We did it!! [In reply to] Can't Post

I haven't been great about tracking miles, but I can tell you 3.1 I did for sure this weekend. My 9 year old elleth and I ran a 5K Color Run on Sunday. (Her first ever, my first in 18 years.)

I was thinking that we might have to walk half of the distance, as I'm more like a hobbit than an elf these days, and she's never run more than 2 miles, but we walked less than 100 yards. (She couldn't manage drinking the cup of water from the water station and running at the same time, so we took the opportunity to slow to a brisk walk for a while. The rest of the time, we kept a nice jogging pace and had a blast getting covered in color.

Now that I know I can do it, I'm thinking of upping my distance for the day-to-day runs and maybe another 5K is in the future.

(Not sure if I should post a pic, since all of them have her in them too.)

Tauriel: So let me get this straight sir, this Elwen girl is back on something called TORn, and rather than just tell her to stop stalking you, you'd like me to show up in a movie I have no business being in as a ploy to distract her, and nevermind the wrath of countless Tolkien fans who will be calling for my destruction?

Legolas: That about sums it up. Besides, some people might like you. Oh, and to be on the safe side, can we pretend to be a couple too?
