Pretty much slacked off in the training department this weekend. On the upside, Amy and I had a pretty relaxing weekend together! On Saturday night we were at a house warming party for one of Amy’s friends. Amy’s friend and her husband are from Alaska and there were some other Alaskans there, they were discussing how you seem run into others from Alaska all over the place even though the state has a relatively small population. I told them about a guy who I went to Western Kentucky University with, who is a triplet from Ketchikan, Alaska. One of the girls from Alaska asked “Was his name Brad?”, he had been her high school swim coach in Valdez. Sometimes the world is pretty small!
I’m going to make this week a run focused week. I feel like I’ve done a good job easing my way back into running but now it’s time to get in some distance! Most of the runs will probably be treadmill runs but I would like to get in at least one decent outdoor run. Feeling the need to do a running race sometime soon, maybe one of the ARR 5Ks, that always helps with the motivation!
Also, my friends Len and Bill and I got registered to volunteer for IMAZ coming up in November. This will guarantee us a spot for 2012 (sub 12 hours will be the goal)!
Someday this man will lose a limb!
