God bless the small inaugural races

Today I won second place in my age group during the inaugural running of the Douglasville Junior League Botanical Boogie 5k with a time of over 26 minutes and less than 27 (I forgot to stop my watch immediately after throwing myself across the finish line, but I'm certain it was 26 something.)

Never mind that there may not have been more than two people in my age group, I have a metal and that's settles it. I had my eye on the first place winner of my age group who was about 20 yards in front of me for the entire last mile and a half. I just couldn't catch her, as much as I thought I should have been able to.

Darn these sinus, allergy and heat issues. I could have been a contender.

could this be it?

I accepted an offer on my condo today. It's not a done deal until after the contingencies clear - inspection, appraisal, financing... I'm on pins and needles. Nothing I should have to worry about, but don't want to get my hopes up. You never know these days.

The deadline on the contingencies is the day before the wedding. If you have any good vibes to spare, please send them my way. I have a feeling I've got some majorly sleep deprived days ahead of me.

1 for 1

1 = number of times I have ever bought a case of beer in my life
1 = number of times a case of beer that I bought was recalled
