getting close to the payoff and original motivation for setting up this weblog… how y’all feelin’?
i have to admit, i’m feeling pretty good, i got 14 miles done on saturday, albeit in kind of a weird way: up at 06:00 for an 8-miler, then i took steph and thor to the airport. came home, watched The Avengers and ate a bagel, then got back out there for 6 miles up in the hills. i was tired, but i wasn’t in pain, even managed to run to catch a bus downtown after lunch.
in fact, i’m feeling SO good i just signed up for the Run The Town challenge with jon: we’re gonna knock out the 5K race before we do the oakland half. probably have some bagels as a light snack in between…
we also both signed up for the 2014 The North Face™ Endurance Challenge presented by GORE-TEX™ half marathon. and i think i’ll try to sign up for the RunDisney™ Inaugural Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon.
i’ve found that if i don’t keep committing myself to these ridiculous events in advance, i don’t seem to maintain any semblance of consistency in exercising, so i’ll probably add another event or two somewhere between now and those races.
in related news: it appears that i like The Avengers.
