So my 5k event was yesterday. The instructor wanted us to set a time-based goal to try and aim for, and I chose 50-55 minutes. On a good day I can cover about 2.5 miles in 40 minutes, and there was no way in hell I was going to start off in a sprint in the beginning. That being said, I was one of the last 4 girls in the class to make it to the stop sign on the north entrance* on the first lap. No shots of coffee waited for us there like I secretly hoped (cause I was still half awake); instead there were markers to sign our initials on index cards to give to him. By the time I finish my first lap, one of the guys in the class is already done! 26 minutes!
I did not do as well as that. Instead, pacing myself and jogging more towards the end, I finished in 53 minutes. :) Very proud of myself for that, as I know there was no way in hell I could have done it at this time last year. I was so exhausted though I slept like the dead last night.

Spring Break starts Monday, and I fully intend on spending more time on art. I might read ahead on Paradise Lost, by my brain is in desperate need of a break. I think I might get some organization done too.

And at the risk of sounding like an idiot, what the hell is Homestuck?! Is it a webcomic or show or something? I've been seeing jokes about it on Tumblr and Deviantart but I have no idea what it is.

* I really don't see what was so bad other than how far out it was; the land was pretty stable compared to the steep turn on the service road we take on our daily workouts.
