Since my legs are pretty sore from the muddy 50K 2 days ago, I decided to walk the (final) Boeing 5K of the year. I didn’t know if I would have anyone to walk with (yes, there are walkers, but most walk slower than I walk), so I brought Book 2 of the Game of Thrones series – A Clash of Kings.
I was able to read about 30 pages. Seems as if my average reading speed is about 10 pages per mile (though I think I read about 15 pages per mile at my last 12 hour “race”). I think I ended up annoying the other participants, though, since I finished in about 43 minutes.
