One of the biggest races of the year has just passed me by. How did that happen? Well check this out. "No race day registration" Being as smart as I am, I decided that I would registered on race day now. With job demands and a son with never ending projects, I thought that decision was "right on." If something came up at the last minute, as of lately, I would save a few bucks. Well, I guess I'm not as smart as I thought. At some races, there is no same day registration. Wow! I didn't know that. I thought that they all had them.
Live and learn after fifty! Until next, stay safe.

Just ran a half marathon today in Clermont, Fl. I've been there before for a 26 miler. I know what running there is all about. Was I prepared for this test of endurance, apparently not, I died at least three times. This particular run is in a state park. At least ten miles of it was on rain soaked trails. You had to be mindful of potholes. And to top it off, it started to rain six miles out. I knew all week long that I wasn't quiet ready. I didn't train properly. My plan was to run the 10k. However, a funny thing happened at the registration table. When asked which run I'm signing up for, I blurted out "The half". Why did I do that. I'll tell you why, a testosterone surge. Three miles in and I soon realized that I had made a big mistake. I just wasn't feeling it. Nevertheless, I forged on. Just kept telling myself, "When the going gets tough, the tough get going!" Third place in my age group. My guess is that some other runners died four times. Remember to tailor your training to compliment your next race.
Your first choice is usually the best choice! Until next time, stay safe.

" If you run, you are a runner. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run."
Running is everything! Until next time, stay safe.

Are you the one who researches everything. You will not buy a product unless it has five stars in a review column. If you're that person, enough already! Just because it doesn't work for them, doesn't mean that it's not what you need. Do your research in the store, and at road races. Ask questions about the product. Don't rely solely on what you read. I almost fell victim to the Research Blues. I over researched because of the product's price. It seemed a bit high. Nevertheless, I just ran in a great pair of running shoes.
The Pinto and Corvair needed it. All else, not so much. Until next time, stay safe.

A little rest and relaxation is just what the doctor ordered.
