RUN: Night around Wickham Park, Melbourne, FL

Tonight, I ran the roads around Wickham Park. I ran in sweatpants and a sweatshirt, the older Asics shoes, and with music (This American Life "Middle of the Night").

I ran slow but managed not to stop. I made a bad step with my left foot while running on the grassy side of Croton. It was cold but not too bad. I had trouble catching my breath at first; as the run went along, my breathing caught up.

The route is supposed to be 4 miles, but I figured that I ran somewhere around 25 minutes, and I totally didn't run 6-minute miles... weird. I'll have to measure and post the route another time (I'm skimping on routes and photos in order to just get entries up).
This week has been National Engineering Week. I've had activities during lunchtime every day of this week (three of them being Toastmasters related). Today, I traveled down to Palm Bay for a presentation about Engineering at Disney. It was pretty fantastic. If I find my notes, I'll try to post more about it (I've got plenty of other things to catch up on).

Work has been a lot more consistent this week. I've been taking a "Bode Miller" approach to life and am "sacrificing some heart" for "more time on the podium". Also, all of the free leftover food was a big comfort.
Anyways, tomorrow, I'm off to Orlando to help build ramps for the Center for Independent Living in Central Florida -- Rampage 2010! This is for my "Give a Day, Get a Disney Day" hat & pin set -- then Sunday is a Disney Day! I'm glad it's the weekend.
