My neighbor and I attempted to run yesterday. Our mistake was going at 11:00. Ah, yeah, NO. Way too hot. There are fountains all over town and I seriously considered climbing into one, or at the very least sticking my head under the water. While
running complaining I kept
thinking about Tim O’Brien. He’s a guy I
went to HS with who runs… a lot. Like NY
Marathon lot. Anyway the same thought
kept running through my head. OMG how
does Tim O’Brien do this? He must be
insane. Of course I have no idea if he
runs in the middle of the day (which I will now avoid until September) but
still. That is what I was thinking. Tim O’Brien = Insanity at least in relation
I don’t know that I will ever get to the point where I really enjoy running or even kind of like it. I do like how I feel when I feel “good” while running. Right now I am still working up from the “I want to die stage” while running. Maybe in another week or so I’ll feel a bit better. I also like feeling fit and I want to lose a little weight. So the running is here to stay. I do however miss the weight lifting and my joints are starting to complain. I know that seems contradictory but lifting weights prevents my shoulders and back from aching but this is another one of those things that I have trouble doing on my own. Al, I miss you but just think of the challenge you’ll have getting me back into shape when I come back to the US in 2013.
