"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood...who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly." Theodore Roosevelt 1910

Orlando Corporate 5K

This was my 7th year as our company's team captain for the Corporate 5K and the 2012 group was awesome.  We had a record 30 people participate, almost half the office, and picked up a 2nd in Male, a 2nd in Female and a 4th in Mixed in our industry class, Accounting.  Almost 14,000 people ran, making for a very jammed race course.  The event was in downtown Orlando and was only 4 blocks from our office.  I turned in a mediocre 26:59, having started way back and spending nearly 2 miles breaking free of the crowds.  Our 2 standouts were Chris Louthan with a 19:55 and Christina Vega with a 25:06.  Several others, Brett Finley and Nicholas Lucas finished under 22:00.

Easter sunrise @ Lucky's Lake


This Easter morning was the 2nd Annual Easter Service/Swim/Pancake breakfast at Lucky's Lake. Last year 175 people showed up; this year was over 200! Perfect weather and a perfect time was had by all. I tried out the new Seminole County Triathletes kit for the swim.  I did 2 of the one kilometer crossings to start the season right. Pancakes were great too!
