As I’m sure that you’ve grown tired of hearing, I decided to take my training to the next level and
It’s really interesting what you see while running for 1:42 hours in the wee hours of the morning:
- First, I found out where all of the dude runners are!!! I saw 4 or 5 of them. One didn’t even have a shirt on. As another shirtless guy, that made me happy. Not tingle in the pants happy, but more of a “cool, I’m not the only one who has no shame” kind of happy.
- To the ladies credit, there were a bunch of them out as well. They generally ran in packs and only 50% responded to a shirtless, sweaty, panting, runner’s waive and “morning!” battle cry. I think one of them pointed mace at me.
- Finally, I also saw all sorts of wildlife. I mean, there were the normal dogs (someone was running with a wiener dog that just seemed wrong. . . .AND HILARIOUS), but also saw a peacock, and for the first time EVER I saw a snake. It was curled up in a circle right beside the sidewalk. It caught my eye as I ran right by it and I might have yelped like a little girl. So, I did the only manly thing I could think of: Got 20 feet away from it, grabbed a handful of gravel and threw it at it. Fortunately, it was dead. Of course, being a guy I had to find a stick and poke it to make sure. Guys like to do that.

What is the furthest you’ve ran mid week? 13 miles is my furthest thus far!
