Not too much to ramble on about today, so how about a few quick hits…..drum roll, please…..
• The long weekend run. The 15 miles went really well. With forced determination and steely masochism, I did my run after work Saturday evening. She Who Knows Fashion was a trooper, agreeing to tackle the beast with me after working all day herself. It was our first sunset run. The romance was accentuated by sub thirty degree temperatures and a chilly breeze. I wore shorts. I ran that last mile like Meatloaf’s wet dream.
Saturday’s Long Run – 15.00 miles – 10:13 Pace
• 8 Days – No Beer – 8 Minutes – No Wine
• Did you know that Presidential Elections coincide with Leap Years? Did you know Tom Cruise was in Young Guns?
• I am not sure if it is a total marketing ploy or not, but apparently, the Rock and Roll Marathon, San Diego (my marathon) is close to selling out. At least that is what the fan page on Facebook told me. And if it’s on Facebook, it has to be true. So we (Myself and SWKF) registered. I was trying to wait until April 13th, because I would have saved almost $30 bucks, but oh well. They baited me. And I spent an additional $36 for a tech shirt. I am such a sucker. Hopefully it will be better than the Ugly White Shirt. I will already be groveling for Phish tickets this summer; can you imagine me, pacing the streets of San Diego, one finger in the air, begging for a Miracle Bib?
• Some friends from my former life came back together and played a show a couple weeks ago. 15 years later, they can still rock it. You Tube “Tribal Disco Noise” to see some old school mayhem. Lots of memories and good times, indeed. A couple of their tunes are on my “running playlist.” Check it out!
• I like two days of rest. I don’t like running 5 days in a row. 51 miles in 6 days.
• Johnny Depp gives me the creeps.
• Opening Day is less than a week away!
• 4-5-4-7-11 sounds just right this week.
