>Look What I Can Do!>Post Your Small, or Big, Victory For The Day!
Did my favorite run around the lake today - about 4.5 miles - beautiful day. Starting to get back into it now....
Congrats on the HM to greylock - way to go!
2013 goals - one goal: finish my first marathon - 10/13/13
yep that's what it's all about, breaking new boundaries however small or large, breaking through those mental barriers as well!

Menace to Sobriety
At 6:00 AM tripped and fell on the road this morning and bloodied a knee at mile 4. Got up and ran 4 more.
Hardcore! I love it!
No running victory today as it was a cross training day but I did get out of bed at 4:15 AM to head to the gym even though I didn't want to.
Nice, man. Plus, you were out and running at 5:30. Not too shabby.

The pain that hurts the worse is the imagined pain. One of the most difficult arts of racing is learning to ignore the imagined pain and just live with the present pain (which is always bearable.) - Jeff
Awesome Burnt Toast!
I've got a couple of victories to post.
Thursday, and all you speedy types try not to chuckle too hard, I did my first ever 1 mile interval during a training run under 10:00! Granted it was 9:59 but I'll take it.
Just in today from my longest run ever...13.30 miles!
Now the big question for the day...beer or wine later?

"Running long and hard is an ideal antidepressant, since it's hard to run and feel sorry for yourself at the same time. Also, there are those hours of clearheadedness that follow a long run." -Monte Davis
