I think I'd better start running. No really. I may have to take a couple of training runs to get ready for 100 miles. I've heard that is good advice. I'm thinking about trying it out.
So in actuality I've skipped a couple runs lately. Either that or rationalized that chasing five and seven year olds around a soccer field for a couple of hours = about four miles of speed work. :)
Things have to change. Now is crunch time. It is time to put in the work, log some serious miles, and see how this highly tuned -err sleek, aerodynamic -uhhh run away 18 wheeler of a running machine is going to hold up.
My thought coming in to work this morning was that I think it would be a great idea if the CEO picked out a day (Monday me thinks?) to stand at the door and greet people as they come in. You know a "Thanks for coming to work today, you're going to do a great job, thanks for all the hard work you're going to put in." type of thing. I was thinking I might have to do it myself seeing as I'm not sure the CEO will find time...
But then again, why not right now? So. Consider yourself welcomed. As you are heading out for your run today, just visualize me standing there with a warm hand of friendship (not sweaty, just warm), saying ":Thanks for lacing 'em up today! You are going to have a great run! Thanks for putting in the effort!" OK would it be a better visual image if you pretended I look like Ryan Hall?
