Wow, I really AM boring

Check out the videos I posted a few days ago in my virtual (fake) race report. I got a video camera for Christmas, but because I truly am boring, I haven’t had anything fun to film. Anyone who knows me and my wife has asked (after they watch them) “wow, did your wife actually film you doing that?” The answer of course is not a chance in hell. In fact, when I even mentioned that I was going to do a video I got such a huge eye roll that MY head hurt. I’m surprised she didn’t sprain her neck. Fortunately, I was able to use various rungs on my ladder as a tripod.

Last night I slept pretty crappy. But, on the bright side, I had a dream where I was running a race (probs 5K) and I won! I rarely remember my dreams, but usually when I do remember them they are really benign. For example, the last dream I remember I was driving down the interstate. No, I didn’t pull up on a broken down bus full of cheerleaders, I didn’t drive off a bridge or run into any zombies….I just drove. Does anyone else have THAT boring of dreams?

But, even though I slept crappy I still got my run in this morning. GYAMA. I ran 6 miles, 4 of which were at tempo of 7:08. The funny thing about these longer tempo runs is that they are pretty consistently faster than my 10K PR. I finished the 6 miles in 45:30 - which included 1/2 mile warm up and 1.5 miles cool down. Looks like it is time to find another 10K, ASAP.

Tomorrow I'm finally going to post my Race Report for the Pat Tillman memorial 4.2 run that I walked with my wife. Less of a race, more of an experience. Not too often does a guy turn down $3mil+ to go to the army.

Driving a bus... I have nothing.

If you are dreaming about racing, I'm assuming you're dreaming that you are winning. I usually just dream about running fast...away from wild dogs and rabbits.

Oh Adam,
I am sure deep down that your wife does appreciate your humor:) Very funny...big time eye rolling and not a chance in hell!! I really do find you amusing:)

You can come to Minnesota and race with me on Saturday...I have another 10K!! Take care Adam!

That's a cool run/walk!

I rarely remember my dreams too! I've had the "bear chasing you dream" more than once. It's always incredibly scary.

Appearantly this dream means I'm avoiding a big issue in my life. I think it's related to camping. But who knows? Haha.

Sounds like a pretty cool dream! I have been sleeping like a log for a while- I miss having dreams!

It never ever gets better with the camera. There is almost nothing good to videotape except...well... My wife says i'm not allowed to tape the good stuff anymore... something about the internets being really big and stuff... but anyway. Anyway, I have probably 100 hours of crap sitting on a hardrive somewhere that I'll never edit into anything... so good luck with the camera!

Hmmm. Must be that extra .2 on the 10K that kicks your butt?

By the way - there's an entire swatch of Riverside/North San Diego County that has turned into little Napa/little Vegas. I'm sure our forefathers thought all that land was nothing but worthless desert when they gave it to the Indians....

I can always count on a good laugh when I read your blog. You are so funny, and NOT boring. Although, you DO have some really dull dreams:)

I dreamt I won an Olympic medal in the 100 last night.

Perhaps we live in an alternate-and-reverse universe, which would make you extremely interesting and me very boring.

Nah.

I guess it all depends on what kind of videos you are wanting to make...
