Day 569-593 Summarization (in Cajun Man Voice)


Hey there, running fiends. Hope you're having a nice sweaty run right now (you know, WHILE you read this amazing blog.) I have had some crazy running experinces this summer. There has been quite a variety of adventures, including everything from running in the woods of Montana and dodging moose to running the Mall in D.C. and dodging rain deluges to dodging gamblers on the summertime strip in Vegas to running rocky trails at 12,500 feet in Rocky Mountain National Park and dodging Elk to running amongst the tall corn of Iowa and dodging...well, you know. Its been nice to break the monotony of Colorado suburbia runs.

The knee is feeling better. I've kicked the PT to the curb half way through (still doing exercises!) And I'm searching for that next motivational running goal to keep me going. Motivation sounds like a good theme for a while. There are some days in this streak thing where it feels like a Herculean effort just to look in the general direction of my running shoes. Thankfully 'teh wifey' usually intercedes in those moments and gives me the cheery, loving, "You can do it honey!" which usually helps tremendously. If that doesn't work she moves in the direction of "don't make me beat you" (just kidding, its all positivity, I promise, no I would never mention those things, PLEASE NO NOT AGAIN!)

What helps you get out the door? I might steal some ideas...

Kudos to you for keeping on with the streak with the traveling and this heat!

Makes me almost want to attempt one myself, except mine would last less than a week, not an AWESOME 593 days!!
