Calming myself down after the little scare that we had on Sunday with my teammate, JJ…I think all of us were a little scared after that incident. I mean we can now re-evaluate our A-type personality that we, runners, have. What? We have A-type personalities? How can this be, I mean I don’t think we wake up early just to run long miles and so on…I mean do we? What? Where was I? The discipline to being a runner is extreme and we bring it to the extreme. Waking up at 6am or even earlier to run…run 26.2 miles…run 20 milers…have a training program and sticking with it…religiously? Come on…we are not that bad right?
Umm…sorry to break it to you folks…but I am included in this mess and I am just saying it, talking about it and reading it…thought, really now, I don’t practice what I preach though.
We need to take it easy, we need to take a few days rest here and there…appreciate life a little more and pick up another hobby maybe…
Oh and on the side note…don’t you love this picture! I mean this is what I was doing the entire race of the Bronx Half…it was rather fun. I look like I am hogging the water stops! Really now, do you think I can drink this much water…seriously. I should show this to those who did the Chicago marathon 2 years ago and tell them that I did this during the horrible hot weather marathon. UH! Crazy! I love it!
Day off for me…yes, I take days off!!!!
