Brian Aselton Road Race

It was a beautiful day to run a short race commemorating a young police officer that was killed in the line of duty. It was 50' at race time and there was a record number of runners this year due to the warm weather. I started off strong with a 7:24 first mile split, then the second mile I was at 15:25 and I fininshed the race at 24:10. There were three hills at the end that kicked my butt. I think I have to insert some hill workouts for myself, they could only help.

I am on a new healthy eating kick ( except I just finished a small cup of chocolate almond chip ice cream, oops!). I went to my doctor on Friday and my cholesterol is up to 245!!!!!!!!! Instead of coffee with cream and sugar, I am drinking green tea, honey and skim milk. I am changing my eating habits one baby step at a time. I can't give up the chocolate goodies right yet. Better yet I have to find some not so fat chocolate treat that will satisfy my cravings.

Have a good week!

Yay! Those mile splits are awesome! I don't think there is EVER anything wrong with just trying to be healthier. Good luck getting that number down!!

i have to give up high fat foods as well b/c I have IBS. after continuing to eat cookies for two days after being told this by a nutritionist i found chocolate yogurt from Trader's Joes. I swear it's good!! (and fat free)

Nice job on the race and good luck with the healthy eating. Not an easy thing to do and I hope I will not have to resort to cutting out coffee and chocolate anytime soon. Stay strong! Chocolate is good!
