I did my first run in a long time today.  It was much easier than the first run of 2010, when I was starting off running for the first time since I played high school soccer.

I have four weeks until the Oakland Running Festival, when I am running in the Twilight 5K.  I wish I had started earlier than this to prepare so that I could be shooting for a particular time.  At this point, I’m just shooting for completing it and feeling great about it.  This race in particular means a lot to me – it’s all about Oakland, and it’s run around Lake Merritt, which is my favorite Oakland spot.
