Running update!!

Ok, I’ve been running lately.  Something about the oppressive heat and stinging wind and drenching sweat really brings out the masochist in me, I suppose.

Anyway, there is a 1 mile circuit around my neighborhood that I’ve been running without the aid of technological doo-dads.  I have no idea what pace I’m keeping, but I am managing to do it non-stop, which is no small victory considering it’s been several years since I’ve run any significant amount.

The recent small victories have inspired me to attempt to scale a larger victory and take a long run this weekend.  I’ve got my eye on a 2.5 to 3 miler on Sunday morning (not sure of the exact distance).  If I get up early enough I’ll tackle it.  If I don’t, I may have to wait until later in the day.  Time will tell.


As for the marathon in January, logistics are working against me on that one.  I’m almost certainly not going to be able to manage the space-time trick of being somewhere 3 hours before I get there.  Even with a chip.


However, Austin’s marathon is February 14.

There is a beach to bay RELAY marathon in May 2010.

On January 9 the World’s Longest Causeway 10k run will be held, but I think I’m in South America for that one.

The Dallas Marathon is in December 2009.

And finally the San Antonio Marathon is in November 2009.


Maybe I can train up for the Dallas marathon…  or maybe Austin.  But Austin is hilly.  Yuck.


I don’t know.  Maybe a better plan is to just run now and decide what, if any, stupid human trick I’ll bother to do later.

Hey, isn’t there a Run the Woodlands next week?


Oh, yea, we cut off military cooperation with Honduras today, too.  ‘Cause, you know, it’s better to have a president who is trying to rewrite the constitution with a rigged election than a congress and supreme court that’s actually trying to protect the country from being remade in Venezuela’s and Cuba’s image.  Bravo.  Bra.  Vo.
