The Monthly Rag

Maybe this should be called the daily poop...But that would imply posts would go up on a daily basis and that shit just aint gonna happen.

Running to the future

May wonders never cease! In what appeared to be another futile stab at finding another running partner, I think I finally met him!

An old friend of mine and I recently reconnected through businesss. As it turns out, he runs marathons and he is also running the Pasadena 1/2 Marathon this fall. Last night, we met up at the Rose Bowl. Admittedly, I was a little taken back when he said he likes to interval train, meaning, run 6 minutes, walk 3. What? Doesn't anyone just jog until they collaspe or throw up anymore? He said interval training helps his body to recover so that he can run for endurance. Whatever dude, just jog with me and don't make me stop!

We jogged the entire 3 miles without stopping at a 10 mile/minute pace. It felt good. We were able to talk and we reached a very decent stride somewhere in the middle.

He thinks I can run a 1/2 marathon by February. I think he's on crack, but at the pace I've been training, I do see myself doing a 10K somewhere in the near future.

however, there are plenty of other positions into which you can force me. if you know what i mean.
