I finally got around to trying that whole running thing. A short and sweet 2 mile trail run/walk in the base of Pisgah. The running wasn’t so bad. I need to work on remembering to breathe but my legs felt fine during and after. It was more walking and shuffling then anything else but I don’t believe I had been running more than a mile in probably close to two years. Tomorrow night I plan on running with the lovely pup pictured above. See how that goes & then if all goes well run/walk the Race for the Cure on Saturday. A few months ago I was all gong-hoe about the race. I had running scheduled into the beginning of September for training for cyclocross. But then…
What happened? Oh yes, I changed jobs and quazi moved. Running & even riding up till a couple weeks ago was the last thought on my mind. I went two weeks with out touching my bike. I became a crank-fest. Ok I became a biatch. I’m doing much better though or atleast I would like to think so. Trying to be normal reliable Arleigh. I think most of that is due to the fact that I’ve been riding pretty consistently. Hopefully I’ll get back on the bike Friday for a juant around Beatty or Catawba & then again on Sunday.
A race is in the works for next Saturday so keep your eye on the screen over the next day or two to see what’s going on. Don’t be surprised to get an email from me in your inbox seeing if you would like to go.
The rest of October is taken. Then it will be November. Damn.
