“A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even more rewarding. But in the end, no matter what the outcome, he will know he has been alive.” - Walt Disney

Running with Royalty

Well, I was up at 4:45...and nothing else was on...so I watched it.  Yup, I watched William & Kate's wedding while I ran on the treadmill this morning.  I wouldn't normally be running on a Friday morning, but I threw off my schedule earlier in the week and am still playing catch-up.

Anyway, it was fun to see, and it was a nice change from watching the news while running.  However, I'll be glad when all the hooplah is over and it's not all the media is talking about!

Two items of note:
  • Princess Beatrice's hat made me think of that scene in Princess Diaries 2 where she tells the hairdresser she looks like a moose and he tells her "Yes, but a very cute moose! Make all the boy moose go waaaaaaaaaaaaa!"
  • I mouthed the words to "My Country 'Tis of Thee" while they played "God Save the Queen"? I couldn't sing 'cause I was running, but I represented in my own little way...
Anybody else get up to see it?

Today's stats:
  • 10 min. warm-up walk
  • 35 min run; 2.72 mi; 12:52 avg. pace
