Bronx Half

"The most important day in any running program is rest. Rest days give your muscles time to recover so you can run again. Your muscles build in strength as you rest." HAL HIGDON

Woke up extra early to do 5 extra miles beforehand, so I left my apartment a little after 6am. I was amazed about the amount of runners waiting for the subway...and the subway did not come...so more runners accumulated. The subway finally came and I was stuck on a stinky subway...uh it smelled like a homeless person's foot...I hate that, I decided to battle it out, but I really should have switched cars. We finally arrived to the Bronx and I met up with AJ or NJ and LL or Laminator. We went to baggage as I saw other flyers: VT, GW and others...I got out of my clothes, dropped off my bad and was on my way. I wanted to do some kind of extra miles (I really don't know why, but one of my friends was doing it, so it sounded like a good idea). Anyways, I went out and did 2 and a half miles which would be on the safe side, where the start was just about to begin when I came around. I was going on the side and was looking for the RED corral where James would be. I was walking along and the national anthem was playing...all of a sudden I hear B! It was James and she was not afraid of calling out my name when the national anthem was playing and everyone was silent. The anouncements go on and I stroll around trying to take other flyer pictures. It was a good day, as I could take pictures with my camera as I paced James.

It felt good to pace though and be serious at the same time...although I had my camera, so I wasn't so serious, I sort of felt bad due to the amount of fun I was having taking pictures along the way.

She was rolling though, very consistant, growing as a runner where she knows her pace, feeling comfortable and really, she was leading me! It was good!

We finished up strong as she was joyful of her PR! Really, you did it all on your own James, I was just there to watch and see how you were doing...little encouragement here and there, but really it was all you. (Just the water situations...nada else!)

Oh...I thought James and this other gal were going to kill me when I was drinking out of my cup at one time (although I had like 3 cups of water) and I tried to drink gatorade...the wind picked up and the gatorade was blowing everywhere...even on James and the gal in back. of me...oh, they were not happy...I appologized!!!

In all...it was a beautiful day with nice weather and really couldn't ask for more.

On the way home by subway, the group of flyerd (JJ, JH, James, me. Laminator, GW, NJ) we all got the same subway car...JJ in the middle of the subway right felt faint and then all of a sudden went down...he was dehydrated and sick...(Found out that there were many flyers out there who did the race and had the "flyer flu"..they should not have been out there at all...they are sick, their bodies were recovering!!! And especially when you had the flu!! Your body is so tired and muscles ache after the flu!).

Runners are sick people...we all share the same addiction, we make bad decisions and only hurt our body even more. We opt out on injury and make our bodies worse. We go all out...all or nothing, where we can't do nothing...

Which comes to the question...when is enough...enough? I don't know...

I think I need to do 20 miles now...
