Thursday I logged my 100th mile since January on Nike+. The website makes a big deal out of it, sending you a “certificate” that you can print out….that was fun, though printing it out seems like a silly idea.
In related news I’ve come to a decision on the 2009 Disney Marathon. After much reflection on motivation and time available I’ve decided that this will not be a good year for a marathon. Primarily due to the fact that I have “knee issues” so in order to run significant weekly miles I have to do A LOT of strength training for my legs & stretching. to add 45min. of that on top of the time for running leaves me pretty hard-pressed & I’ve decided it’s not worth a 5am wake-up call at this point in my life. Plus i think i was just trying to be ‘cool’. Oh well, such is life. I’d like to do one eventually. Perhaps sometime in the vague, “when the kids are older”.
In un-related news: Speaking of ‘cool’. A friend from college visited yesterday (that was lots of fun, thanks Jen!) and I walked in on the tail-end of a conversation she and ryan were having. She said, “…i think he was comfortable because ya’ll are cool and normal”. Ryan & I both got a nice chuckle out of that one. A double-whammy. Cool AND Normal! ….pretty sure we’re not either of those, but we’re apparently good at the facade.
speaking of running, I intended to head out for a jog 20min. ago….
