I've been running lately. A lot. More than I ever have and harder than I ever have. I'm wavering between thinking this is terrible and being excited about the potential to break PRs like it ain't no thang. That would be cool, although unlikely. You can follow my training here. The best thing that's happened running-wise is that I went on a 17 mile run that wasn't slow and actually felt ok. That's never happened before. Here's what else I've doing:
1) Went to Lake Tahoe. Had hardest slow three mile run ever.
My college friends, Anthony, and some other people decided to get a house over President's weekend in South Lake Tahoe. I'd never been before, and it's just a tiny bit beautiful. Even though I'd run two hard workouts back to back the day before and boozed up a storm that night, I wanted to run. I probably have an exercise addiction problem and I couldn't deal with not trying to run in such a pretty place.
|yes, I am using that word ironically.|
2) The best cover of Time Magazine I've ever seen:
I never thought Time Magazine had it in them to compare a tiny rapper from the 90s to a new leader of one of the most wacko governments in the world, but they went there. With hilarious results.
A couple more of these zingers, and I'm a subscriber.
3) I spent my Saturday Night playing Bingo with Heather, Sarah, and Pam.
I expected the year to be about 2050 before I was spending my weekend nights at Bingo. But the night defied all of my expectations and was shockingly fun. Pam invited us to come to a Bingo Fundraiser at her daughter's high school. And people there don't play around. The gym was packed! And the people were serious players! Look at their intense stares!
Sadly, none of us won. But don't worry, Pam, Heather, and Sarah were still able to muster a smile and we were able to stop ourselves from grabbing the winning bingo sheet from an old lady.
We'll be back for you, Bingo, and next time with a vengeance....
