I started running a couple months ago, and Lem convinced me to run CityTeam’s Run 4 Recovery 5k/10k with him, so I signed up! The 3-week Philippines trip kind of threw a wrench into my running schedule, and I hadn’t been running regularly ever since, but I did manage to get several practice runs in before the event.
I was only planning on running the 5k, but the way the route was constructed, we ran 5k out, then turned around and ran back to the starting point, so since I was going to have to turn around and come back anyway, I just ran it. So I ended up running the 10k in around and hour and 10 minutes–the longest I’ve ever run at one time. Here’s my run stats and map on MapMyRun.com.
We are just so happy to be running!
Thanks Lem for getting me into the event. Lots of fun! Painful fun, but fun.

I’m happy to say that after a year of off and on work with the excellent team at the non-profit, CityTeam Ministries, we’ve launched a long-overdue redesign of the CityTeam website!
CityTeam Ministries was my first web design job out of college, so I was happy to work with them again. You can see a brief history of their website designs on my post I wrote when I left CityTeam back in 2005.
Congratulations to CityTeam and the marketing team on the launch of their new website!
Lem let me tag along to help him cover the San Jose Sharks/Tyson Food/Second Harvest Food Bank event. These guys teamed up to donate thousands of pounds of chicken to various local charities. I got there kind of late, when everything was pretty much wrapped up, but Lem did get my a bunch of autographs of the players that were there. Woohoo!
Lem failed to get JR, Lemieux, and some others, but hey, I’m eternally grateful!
The last time I got to meet some Sharks, back in 2005.
