Columbus Day

Day 1013 - October 10, 2011

the plan was a 10 mile trail run today. On my way to the trails, I decided to add some roads and would park a mile or so from the trail head and bump my mileage up to 12. I ended up parking farther away than I thought, and as I was running to the trails got the idea to extend the run out to 14.92 miles - you know, in honor of the more infamous Chris. Yes, I'm pretty sure that moves me up a few notches on the dork scale.

Anyway, the run ended up being exactly 14.92 miles and I finished in just under 2:13.

To make this even more ridiculous, I noticed on my Garmin that I had started the run at 10:10 am on October 10th.

I think I need to go back to work, I've got too much time on my hands this weekend.

Dancing with Snakes

Day 1012 - October 9, 2011

Did the snake dance today - you know the one where you realize you are about to step on a copperhead and somehow throw yourself to the side, manage to stay upright, and keep running. I think it was dead, but I didn't go back to check it out. Dog bites are bad enough- don't need to add venomous snakes to the list.

Sick and still running

Day 1011 - October 8, 2011

Kept the streak going today despite a nasty cold - the run was actually the best I felt all day.
