5ks abounded last week.
I had a weird confluence of work blog and maggie blog that resulted in inviting Ben Davis from Ben Does Life to come have a chat with us about book publishing.
Always weird to see someone you know in a bloggy way in the real life way.
He was definitely really normal and friendly, and talked with us openly about his experience of writing a book. Fodder from that conversation should show up in the Blurb blog next month.
And the whole reason he was in San Francisco was for his Do Life tour, so I took a couple of work lady friends down to run his 5K that evening. (Me at the top right, then Jeannette and Megan next to me, and Marissa in front of Megan.)
I ran with one of my coworkers, who kicked my ass a bit, setting a pace that was just slightly beyond my comfort zone. And I know that it wasn’t really a race, and the point was really just to get out there and “Do Life!” But good golly. Me and Jeannette? We came in second! Which is likely to be the first and only instance of that kind of glory for me, so let me just wallow in it a little.
