I made $100 today

--- thanks to my colleague who paced me around the track and got me across the finishing line, after 2.4km, at a time of 12 minutes 30 seconds.

I should add that my colleague is in his mid-twenties, runs at this pace as a matter of course, and is quite cute and adorable, if any of you ladies are looking to date a fighting-fit male teacher. (He seems to be single.) He was going to do the run "for fun", having clocked in his official time earlier this week, but when he heard the time that I was loosely aiming for (13 minutes, in order to secure the $100 incentive reward from this Healthy Lifestyle programme), he decided, "I'll pace you." And did. And nearly killed me in the process, but after the pain and the huffing-puffing and the twisting protests from stomach muscles that aren't used to being tautened in this way --- he got me there.

Now to think of a suitable thank-you gift to get for him.

Oh well. I guess chocolate cake will have to do, and ladies --- hands off, it seems he's taken!
