When Maddy, Adam and I were running the other night, Maddy noted that with Twitter, we seem to blog less. It seems that we are keeping up with each other much more continuously - and don't see the need to the frequent blog entries.
Then I realized that there are a number of folks who don't Twitter.
In addition, some interesting stuff can be lost in the 240 character limit.
So here is to blogging!!!
On the running front - I got 3 runs in this week. The first run was with Maddy and Adam. After the first 3 mile lap, I wimped out of doing a second lap and we settled in for some smoothies and good company.
The last two runs were early in the morning. Getting up early (once again) is a tough adjustment for my late night self, but necessary. It isn't so much the heat in the late day...I can handle the temps at 7 pm. But it is the late day, unpredictable thunderstorms that can literally put a damper on the running. Rather than risk missing a run, it is better to get up early.
During my morning runs, I get to see an entirely different set of runners on my Lockwood route. I got a chance to hook up with a local neighborhood runner named Joan. Joan runs with her dog every day for about 6 miles. When we see each other we stop and chat. She is 56 and running strong but doesn't run in any races. She is out there because she loves it and wouldn't have it any other way.
Friday is my rest day before running both Sat and Sun.
