    I made the mistake of trying to run a race with a bad hamstring. I had strained it on Tuesday night's run. I tried going for a run on Thursday, but only went a 1/4 mile before running back home. Friday night and Saturday morning it felt like it was better and that I should be able to finish, just slower than I had hoped.

    Warming up for the race, I didn't feel like I would be able to go very fast at all, but once the race started, I felt better. It even felt like the leg was getting better as the race progressed. However, even though it didn't feel like I was going too fast, I was running around 6:20 per mile. However, I felt a twinge a bit after a mile, so tried to ease up a bit. Shortly after 1.5 miles, it gave out on me, so I had to walk and jog the rest of the way. So, my final time was 32:50. However, that was good enough for 4th in the 40-49 age division, so I got a ribbon. If I had been able to keep up the pace I had been running, I would have won my division. Last year's top four in the division all would have been faster than this year's division winner.

    Afterwards, I stopped by my mom's on the way home. She was burning some windfall branches and stuff, so I helped pick up sticks in the field for about 90 minutes. It almost seemed to help the leg to do that, but it was pretty sore later. Seems a bit better now, but I shall take a week off at least from running.

    Sorry to hear about your hammie MSP that is a tough injury to shake off. I've had a bit of a problem with mine as well. Based on your time I'm presuming you were in a 5k?

    As for myself I also ran in a 5k, 11th overall and 3rd in my age group. It was a rather small race to benifit a local high school track and field program. My overall time was 19:55 which was slower then I was hoping for but the course had some icy spots and that darn hammie was bothering me. After the race I drove home, napped and went to work.

    It was a 4 mile race, totally flat. There was also a half-marathon that split off from the 4 mile course at about 2 miles. My goal going in was 26 minutes, but if I was feeling good, along with the flat course, maybe close to 25 minutes. With the hamstring bothering me, I would have been happy to run under 28, but I felt good and was on pace for 25:20 for the first 1.5. I'm certain I would have have run well under 26 if not for the injury.

    Sort of slept in (until about 6:30am). Graded quite a bit. Watched the last part of Ohio State/Michigan. Went to church, then tried to go to Olive Garden (bad idea on a Saturday night around 6pm) for dinner but settled on Fatburger (quite tasty) before going to a community theater production of The Man Who Came to Dinner. Lost an hour due to DST.

    In the early morning, I helped as a cameraman on a shoot for a short video about my university's medical school (I'm also heading my own video for the project, but this was just to help another). Then I went to a few casinos with my dad so I could gamble for the first time. After a lot of losing, I ended up breaking even and getting an extra $60 on top of it at a simple slot machine, which was pretty cool. Then I slept a while as midterms and such took a toll on my schedule the past week, worked on some newspaper stuff, watched SNL and Mr. Show and that was it.

    If I remember correctly, I listened to a guy give a 3 hour sales pitch on a water filtering system that should get the iron out of our water. We have really hard water living in a house with well water. After he left, my wife and I caught a matinee showing of "Rango" and then stopped at an old favorite restaurant we liked and had some dinner. Then we came home early because we had to get to bed earlier do to the time change, and both of us having to be to work early Sunday morning.

    Take a peek at Multipure products on line. I've had one of their systems for 17 years now. I don't have the water situation you do, but they may have a solution for you:

    I would, but we already bought into his sales pitch, and got the water unit installed. They are also replacing our 1998 water heater, which was supposed to have been put in yesterday. It has been put back until Thursday. So far the water feels, smells, and tastes better.
