Two significant events today...

It's been a while since I've had a day when I could just putter about. And putter I did, with two big accomplishments:

1) I burned a home movie to DVD. The analog ==> digital conversion project has finally begun. It'll probably last all fall, but that's ok, because it sure is fun to see video I haven't looked at in 10-20 years...

...and 2) I ran 5K. It was just on the treadmill, because it's too freakin' hot and humid to do anything outside. But I'm thinking about running a 5K at the end of September* and I wanted to see if I could do it. I'm pretty new to running -- I've only recently discovered the secret to running without pain and injury (one of these days I'll do a post about the benefits of barefoot running!) -- so I've never run that far before.

For the record and the curious, a 5K = 3.1 miles, and it took me less than 45 minutes.

*If anyone has a pacing device/HRM/Garmin thing that I could borrow for the run, I'd be ever so grateful! I mostly use the treadmill, so I haven't invested in that sort of tech. Yet...
