Tomorrow is the kick off of the 2008 running season and the road to the marathon. Supposed to be cold and rainy, but, hey it’s gonna be fun. Earth hour is here so I’m off
I’m registered for the Shuffle and I am starting a track team at the base to help with the training… hopefully some funds.
Today I start the training for the 08 season, and am thinking of three competitions:
1) Shamrock Shuffle -short race to help me get my speed up and give me a short term goal
2) Air Force Marathon -out at Wright/Patterson AF Base in Ohio. It should be a good bench for Chicago in October….
3) Chicago Marathon -last time maybe, but trying to prove that once was not a fluke and my time can be better.
Figures that I would choose to run a marathon on the record hottest day. Still, with faith and a some prayer and a lot of water and a truckload of pain, I did it. Finnished. May even do it again…
I am excited and also freaked. Got my packet and everyone at the expo were great. I believe I can. I don’t believe in luck, but prayers are welcome.
I got thirty three and no more. Good thing I’m broke, cause I need to keep lean and hungry and stick to the hard line. And now my ipod broke so once the battery is dead, it’s dead…gonna dig out my walkman and a Guns’n’Roses album.
I discovered the need for good footwear. My joints are feeling the run more than anything. Expensive, but I have started hitting people up for sponsorship. Ten bucks gets you a spot on me (except where the numbers are) and I will even design the patch. Cool eh?
skipped a day cause my legs hurt so bad, but then ran six miles yesterday. stopped for a sec and broke my rhythm and it was all over now, baby blue.
Still, good to be going…
