Another 5K Race Down

I completed the Laurier Loop 5K race yesterday as part of the Homecoming activities for Wilfrid Laurier University. It was to raise money for the MDRC, a research centre for movement disorders.

I completed the 5K (two 2.5 K loops) in a personal best time of 26min 20 seconds (chip time) and a pace of 5:20 min per km. I’m happy about the finish (beat my goal time by almost 2 minutes!) and I’m happy about the personal best and my pace and finishing without injury, but I was almost 30seconds away from a 3rd place medal in my age category! Still… plenty of time to improve and I’m not too far away from a 3rd place time. Perhaps I will find time to train while running after all, instead of just enjoying myself :)

A Look at Windows Live Writer

Just a quick test of the Windows Live Writer software, as I was trying to remove Windows Photo Gallery. The Live Writer blog application is quite an unusual look at blogging. Interesting. It allows me to post entries in a WYSIWYG editor, a far cry from the default Blogger post entry, and more robust than Scribefire, the plug-in for Firefox.
