All told, not including a 6 mile "test" run last week that about killed me off, I didn't run for NINE days straight. Streak runner I ain't.
So, since I would normally be in taper mode for a PR attempt half marathon next weekend, I'm having a bit of trouble figuring out my own run schedule. The net result is that I'm doing a bit of a reverse taper - building UP my mileage the closer my race comes instead of reducing it. Within the same vein, I can only imagine that next I'll be forcing myself to eat more holiday cookies and will try to listen to even more holiday music than I'm already bombarded with in every single store.
I will admit that it feels really really good to get out there and run again. The 4:25am wake up calls I could do without (getting up at 4:20 makes me feel like a stoner - damn hippies) but the lack of sleep is worth it to do something that I really enjoy.
Two funny foto Fridays this week. First, an ancient picture in internet terms (read: like a week and a half) but still great none the less. This guy was actually running the Flying Pig marathon last year, but it recently went viral. TexRunner was the original photog and caught up with him for a great interview. Check it out here: http://trexrunner.com/2012/11/27/i-found-him/
His story is actually a good one - and obviously he has a great sense of humor. Check it out!
Oh YEAH!? Well, I'm....uh...hmm....crap. Ok, you rule.
Finally, we've all received random text messages. The best one I have ever received was a chick telling someone that her husband was out of town and that the recipient should come over. Scandalous! Anywhoo, the BEST has to be when it is a slightly erotic picture message... like this. Anyone else have any good accidental text stories? Happy Friday!
Actually, anyone who sends me a text gets this as their first response
