Weekend Sporting Highlights:

  • Notre Dame defeated Stanford 31-7 for their fifth straight victory of the season. All my girls were at the game. Man, that would’ve been fun. Go Irish!
  • The Sydney Roosters won the Rugby League Final over the New Zealand Warriors 30-8. I watched the second half and it was awesome. Good on ’em.
  • I ran the 5K in 41:50, lopping a full four minutes off my previous time. I know that’s a horrendously slow pace for some of you runner types, but I’m just so happy that I was able to keep moving for that long without keeling over. In fact, I felt really, really great tonight. My lower back strain is getting better, and I didn’t have to stop and stretch it til I hit the two-mile mark. Then I stretched it once more before the final sprint. I won’t be running any marathons anytime soon, but I think I’ve gotten over my hatred of the sport. I can do this!

For any Aussies reading along, have a great Labour Day tomorrow. Unfortunately a day off work doesn’t mean much to us self-employed types. 🙂

  1. congrats on your 5k. it’s not how fast you run, but the fact that you run at all. :o) i have to remind myself of that all the time! my sisters are all super speedy, and i’m a total slow poke.

  2. Congratulations! I’ll echo Kristen’s thought about time. As long as you keep feeling good, you’re the winner!

  3. D’oh, we don’t get the holiday today down here. You NSW bastards 🙂
