5k plans update: We decided not to run the 5k portion of the Illinois Marathon/Half-marathon/5k because the entry fee is rather high. There are many other local options though, so I feel confident that we'll find something appealing. Talking with Meg about it yesterday I realized that I have no idea how to train for a 5k. I'm consulting Runner's World and some online training schedules. It's also meant to be fun, so I doubt there will be much hardcore effort on this one. Plus, I prefer distance over speed, and speed is the whole point of a 5k.
For those of you on the long list of people hassling me about uploading recent pictures of Elliot, I offer you this teaser. My son is a total goofball and I love him.
