I need to start charging people to join my fan club. I do a lot of my running in my development since its a 1/2 mile loop. When its late at night I don’t want to run outside the neighborhood because its poorly lit and there’s a mile long stretch that just goes through an unpopulated area. So a few people I guess have noticed my new routine and tonight I had one group of people who always hang out at this house down the street giving me splits every time I came by. One woman tried to run with me for a moment…I think she may have been drunk. Either way it was funny. Then some guy a few houses down decided to run with me and get me to run faster. I think he thought he was funny…but I was too tired at that point (already was a couple miles into the run) to humor him for more than a moment. I’ll have to look into my endorsement opportunities since I’m becoming a household name!
Rocked it out when I got home tonight. Ran a little a little over 3.1 miles since that’s the what my neighborhood loop forces me into. It was a bit of a harder night tonight so tommorrow I’ll just do something light. Aiming for 4 miles this weekend…that’s going to be rough.
So about a month ago I started running. I blame my friend Carolyn for causing my motivation into this endeavour. Anyone who knows me knows that running has always been my kryptonite. It definitely was a factor in my departure from USAFA. I was always in better shape when I was running though…as much as I hated it. I really don’t have time for much of the exercise I really like, such as road biking. I just don’t have the time to put in the 2 or more hours during the week I’d need to bike. 30 – 60 minutes to run? Cake.
