Hey here's a news flash, for those of you who may just be joining us or for those not paying attention -- I'm not fast. No really, its true. Some peeps who were checking out the site for the first time were making kidding comments about running a mile in 11:42. (Apparently they didn't see where I ran one in 13:42 or higher while I had a back injury, then I really would have heard it :) I'm sure to most reasonable people that is slow. Guess what, it is what it is. If I waddle, then I waddle. If I plod, then I plod. If I make Mario Lopez look like Usain Bolt, fine. I'm still running. I would clearly be disqualified from the professional race-walk competitions for running, so to me it counts. It may take me multiple days to finish the marathon, but I plan on finishing. If you can walk a mile faster than I run one, great, go do it, good for you! I never claimed to be training for the Olympics, or even for this..(though it does get good news coverage)
I'm just running. Every day. For a while. Ok /end rant. Picked up a cold yesterday, and a sore back today to complete the mix, so I'm probably in a generally agitated state. My apologies.
