A semi-daily chronicle of my life as a musician, a family man, and a citizen of Oregon.

Cinco De Mayo Run

A few weeks ago I ran my first ever 5K at the Cinco De Mayo Run in Portland.  Jen and I both decided to do the race - me in the 5K and Jen in the 10K.  I started out toward the back of the crowd because I didn't really see anyone around that I thought I looked fitter than, but it turned out I should have been closer to the middle.

For the most part the run was pretty uneventful other than to say that it was fun and it was a great feeling to be greeted by the kids when I finished. My niece Jasmine was also there to cheer us on.

The other great thing about running in a race when you live in Portland Oregon?  Guilt-free beer at 10:30 in the morning.
