And at my half-marathon last Saturday, I was kinda "the bug". In fact, it seems like most of the past few months I've been more "insect", than a high speed pane of glass. But all things considered, I'm in good health and fair conditioning, and looking forward to a long summer of marathon training.
My primary goal this year - and it will remain so until injury or life circumstances change my course - is to run a 3:00 marathon in the fall. My intent is run it at the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon in November. But the suddenly non-stop flow of babies around here has another due about that time. Yes ... grandchild #3. I've morphed into an old man seemingly overnight. So we'll have to wait & see how the ol' Stork-Schedule falls.
So I'll try to put recent sub-standard races behind me and only look forward. I heard a really cool tag line in an ad for female fitness equipment the other day ... "Do you throw in the towel, or use it to wipe off the sweat?" Um ... I think you're supposed to choose the latter, right? Admittedly, the older I get, the tougher it is to maintain the level I want to run at ... but I will enjoy every step of the process! Here we go!
... be great today!
