3 days to liftoff!

Man, did I have fun with that last post. That was funny. I also posted it on the Runner's World Discussion Forum and got some hilarious responses. Some people thought I was serious and wanted to make the trip to Houston to jack-slap me. Others knew right away it was a joke. Anyway, it was fun.

I had a couple of good runs the last 2 days, 3 on Tuesday and 4 yesterday. No hard breathing, AT ALL!!! Hard to not giddy-up when you're feeling this good. I thought my schedule called for 3 tonight but Hal only gave me 2 easy miles for 3 days out. Man, talk about going crazy. You know how long it's been since I only ran 2 MILES? Still, I look forward to and relish EVERY mile I get to run. It's been such a blessing to my life and has become such a big part of my life.

Pasta tonight with the Striders at Romano's after my li'l two miler. Should be a blast. My family has been awesome and patient with me this week. I've kind of ignored them around supper time, sticking religeously to my own plan. And I've been early to bed every night. I have been getting up to make my son a good lunch this week. By the way, he joined a neighborhood boxing club and is very excited about it. I was happy when he played football this year but that was a short season. He really needs something to keep him active year-round. Turns out the group runs quite a bit too. I think he said they start every workout with an easy 2-miler so that's awesome. They meet 3 times per week and I'm hoping that on the off days, we can get to run some together. This should work out great for the rest of January and on into February before I start ramping up again for Pig training.

Life is good! I'd like to blog more but Steve's put a limit on the length of my posts. 3 days to liftoff!!!
