Sekrit Projekt Trial Run

I'll be making my attempt at a trial run today for my Sekrit Projekt. Who knows how it will work, but I'll give it a shot. It's not the original idea I had a few weeks back, but I'm taking a spin on it and hopefully it'll work out better. Right now, it's kind of a lame idea, thus the "sekritive" nature of the project. Part of it is tied into a resolution I have for the new year (not the one below) and the resolution isn't so lame (in fact I've seen some more "professional" reviewers/bloggers taking it up. Oddly, it isn't due to the "economy," it's due to my OCD nature of being a completist. Anyway, we'll see.

As for my not-so-sekrit-projekt, I'm making an early resolution for the new year. Running. Yes, that self-abusing sport of running. I did pretty good with my first race (2nd place for my age group plus a trophy) and my second race was a bit of a wash (but I walked with a four year old, so it really wasn't all that bad). My personal goal is to run the race in 30 minutes or less. That's five minutes faster than my best race (of old age, not of all time - that's in the 21 minute range from high school - but let's not count that, shall we?). I have an eight-week training schedule mapped out, scheduled time off you-know-where, and hopefully enough motivation to do well. The race I'm training for is the first in a series, in fact a local "Grand Prix" sponsored by various local businesses. Maybe if I'm fast enough, I'll reward myself with some uber-cool shoes I saw this weekend.

UPDATE - The Trial Run was okay. Had plenty of time remaining to actually eat lunch. I figure if I do it once a week, I'll be okay. Also did a bit of research for the project, so we'll see how it turns out. But I'm still not out of the Alpha testing stage yet.
