A post just to get one in....

Ok I have not been great about blogging but I am kinda bored with it. I am getting my weight training in and my running in but it is slow and honestly I am not that proud of it. Yeah its miles under me and thats great. I ran a 5K on thanksgiving. I chased that turkey. I didnt kill it and I finished in 27:51. Abs and legs 2 X week. "Functional/stability" day. Shoulders/back too. I am getting stronger. I am running in the Las Vegas Rockn Roll 1/2 marathon. Again not my A race so I just want to have some fun and enjoy a good run. This year the route changed. All out and back on the strip. Im excited for that. The group I run with will be doing the race and my Dad and sister will be coming out. Should be great.

I would like to send a shout out to my friends running the CIM. They have been training for a few months to PR. All will be very fast and several hoping for BQ. Karl....dude...your a machine. You will kill it and your leg will be fine. Give it hell.

“Do you wish to rise? Begin by descending. You plan a tower that will pierce the clouds? Lay first the foundation of humility.”
Saint Augustine quotes

Rise and Rebirth have been swimming in my head lately. This resistance training is laying a good foundation for next tri season. Saint Augustine happens to be my patron saint. Just liked this quote by a guy I happen to like.

Offseason is just weird like that - not a lot of exciting things going on. Sounds like all is well.

Have fun running the Las Vegas half! Say hello to the runners from your group that I met in Anaheim.

It is a fast course Ron so if you "feel it" and get into a groove, then go for it! We'll be thinking about you. I'll call you on the way home.
