My new and improved running journal. We'll see where this goes from here. And yes, I hate running. But "I don't wanna" is really not that good of an excuse anymore. I took a two year hiatus, and now it's time to get up and do something.

Running update [SPOOOOON!!!]
It wasn't as bad as I was expecting it to be. It was actually pretty decent.
3 miles scheduled. Ran those 3, then tacked on a pair of extra ones for June. 1: 9:21.41 2: 10:19.00 3: 10:25.14 At this point I ran about a quarter mile and walked another quarter mile cooling down, then decided that since I was already a half mile into the loop, I might as well prepare a good dose of shame for June, so I started running some more.
3.5 - 4: 5:23.75 5: 14:39.43 (I was a little tired here) 6: 11:33.12 (a bit of a rally for the final mile).
Hm... I have an X AND a Y chromosome. How much less specific can I get?
Not much. I started blogging leading up to my first attempted marathon in 2005 and haven't stopped. Since then the topic of the running blog has strayed around the idea of running and chronicled my journey through training for my second attempted and first completed marathon in 2006. In 2007 I opted to be a dad rather than a marathoner, and now I am typing a profile into blogger. That pretty much catches you up with what you need to be caught up on.
