For the last couple of weeks I have not been sleeping very well.  I have no trouble falling asleep, it's the staying asleep that is causing me problems.  Last night, I woke up around 2 am and my mind just started racing, and I could not get it to shut down and go back to sleep.

Some people can function on minimal amounts of sleep, but I am not one of them.  I go to bed early because I get up early and I know that I need my rest.  I still got up and went to swim this morning at 5:30, but the workout energy I had afterwards is now starting to wear off.  My head hurts and my eyelids are heavy.

So, let's talk about something good that happened this weekend...

I ran in the second annual Moore War 5K, sponsored by my high school's alumni association.  I ran in the first one last year as I was gearing up for a fall full of running, and my time wasn't bad, 28:04, which was my fastest 5k up til then.  I was hoping to be able to better my time this year, and I did.  Just over 6 months after my knee surgery I finished up at 27:11.  Needless to say I am very excited about how well I did.  It's been a tough year, with the surgery and having to start from scratch with my running again, and I think all my hard work has paid off.

Up next, the Brookhaven Run on Saturday and my own version of Cupcake Wars at my house this weekend.  I sure could use some sleep first!
