Decided to start a blog. Not sure why. I've always thought I'm not interesting enough for people follow me. But perhaps by starting this, it will drive me to become interesting. I believe I do interesting things so if you are reading this then it is ultimately your decision if you want to follow or not. At least my mother will follow. I think.
I ran today at Sweetwater SP mainly because I just wanted to get in the woods. Also to do some recon for my next race. The SweetH2O 50k. I'm pretty familiar with the trails there, but there is a short section that I have not been on called Top Of The World. Anyway, it was a great run. Nobody was out there. It was overcast and eventually started to rain. Then thunder. Then lighting. It was surreal. I love running in the rain especially in the forest. I'm not sure why. I think because it reminds me of backpacking and of growing up playing in the rain. It is also empowering to know that very few would be out in it.
Anyway, I was still a little sore from the Publix Georgia Half Marathon last Sunday. It was a PR effort at 1:20 flat and I came in 18th out of 10,700 or so. I'm happy.
Until next time...
