A few months ago my girlfriend signed up for the Bellin Run. She also signed my daughter Keiana and I up as well. Keiana is in track, she does the 100m and 200m runs and several relays and I've had her running a mile day since last summer. Me? I was 100% confident I could find my way out of it. So my preparation for the Bellin Run consisted of Buffalo Wild Wings and working out for 30 minutes back on May 1st.

Saturday morning comes around and the girlfriend has to work extra late because of a system upgrade that was fussy and didn't get home until after 2 AM. And she had her kids. So she had an excuse. My next hope was it was going to rain.

It didn't rain.

My next hope was that we (Keiana and I) arrived to late!!

Wrong. Apparently you just cross the start line whenever you want. Wonderful.

We started off with a nice jog and finished the first mile at 10 minutes. I was okay with this. I just wanted to finish the whole thing under 90 minutes. The little thing I bought in the middle of the night to hold my phone simply was a pain in the ass. After that first mile, I went to walking, Keiana kept onward jogging.

I finally got my phone stable and then a little girl, maybe five years old passes me up and then starts walking. So I thought what the hell, I started joggin and waved at her, lets go, come on. She ran with me for a little bit and each time she slowed down I tried getting her to keep going. She finally had enough of me and sat in the grass! I went back to a walk shortly after.

I ended up walking nearly the rest of it, passing people left and right, which was pretty funny to me.

According to my Endomondo, I did the 10k in 1:22:09, but Bellin Run says over 2 hours. They just flat started people at 8:00 AM if you didn't go through with your corral.

Looks like I finished 6,069th out of 9,359 finishers.

I felt pretty good the next morning so I moved our 16 foot pool, our trampoline and most the three sections of lawn. I was dead around 5pm. This morning was a blast to walk down stairs and back up them and I can barely stand up off my chair today!

My quads are toast and my buttocks is sore too!

Lesson learned here, never let your girlfriend sign you up for shit!!

Good for you Kevin. You need a little Shaun T Insanity Max. Laugh

One of the things I love about running is older runners will look out for younger runners and try to encourage them. It happened my sons first 5K race. He had no training. I didn't know what to tell him other than to take his time and save a little for the end. Different people talked to him and he finished the whole thing still jogging/trotting.

The only 5K I competed in was more walk than run. I later found I threw my ribs out a couple of weeks earlier while training. I haven't run since.

Zero2Cool (21-Jan) : If you need to look at it via SLOMO for more than 2 minutes, your rules are too difficult.

TheKanataThrilla (21-Jan) : They review PI calls in the CFL. In slow motion many calls look like PI. The fact is there were at least 3 refs looking at the play and they all botched it.
Zero2Cool (21-Jan) : Only LaFleur knows how many coaches are left. He might decide no QB coach
beast (21-Jan) : Making PI calls reviewable might just lead to more PI calls... also I wonder what Sean Peyton (maybe on that committee thinks about noncalls being reviewable
beast (21-Jan) : It all depends on how they set it up... at bare minimum ST coordinator and all the assistants. Rest might be optional/base on setup
