Well, sure. But, to me – everyday is a running day. Unless of course, it’s a rest day. Still, its great. Join us as we take strides as a nation towards healthier, fitter lives.
I wonder, now that the Brooklyn Half Marathon has been run and is all over, what shall this blog become? What shall I talk about? Will my running become mundane and boring to talk about here? Will my quest for speed put even the fastest of runners, to sleep?
I am still thinking about the half marathon. It was a wonderful day full of love and laughter and support. My friends became friends with each other. The connections were immediate and will be long lasting. Running does that. Even my sister, the golfer/tennis player had a blast and said we were all just so “cool”. Runners are like that. Runners are cool. Runners are like that.
I just fear my posts to become something boring and typical. Sure, I need to talk about my running. My stats. My mile splits. I need to do that here. Document it. Make it real and lasting.
I am planning on some cool guest posts here. Stay tuned for that.
I took the day after the Half Marathon off from running. I awoke hurting all over. And I mean all over. My ribs, my shoulder blades, my thighs, my biceps, yeah WTF? Like I lifted weights or something. So, I did what every runner does after a race. I walked. Ok, well that is what this runner does. I walked 3 miles. Sure, I tried to run but my legs screamed FUCK YOU and then my cell phone rang so I was saved. By the bell, I guess.
4 miles 41.22
Consistent but not as fast as I’d like it to be. Again, I am not complaining. Nor will I ever complain. Well, perhaps if my blood blister makes another appearance. Or perhaps if I run out of body glide or vitamin water or stuff to say here. Then maybe a complaint or three.
Tomorrow will be kinda cool. Unless, there are thunder storms. Otherwise, I will be meeting up with Chris to ride over to Central Park for a group run hosted by Deena Kastor. It’s National Running Day, after all. If anybody is in the NYC area, come by and say hello and run!
