So far so good
Well its march 25Th and the weather still sucks here in Michigan. I caught some kind of bug after running 22 miles two weeks ago but seem to be back to my old self now. I have been able to put in 67 miles since Friday and look forward to a good week.The MNP race is a little over two weeks away and I have not ran a race this year,you better bet against the fat man, I think not! I'm looking at starting slow and adding another sub 24 hour to my 100 mile list of finishes. I have also been checking out other web sites and blogs and can't believe how many people are offering coaching services and running advice. I think its cool that the sport is excelling and moving ahead and that in the near future some of the young studs might just make alittle money. I myself am not very coach able and like to run how I feel ,and I log my miles on a calender.I love the social aspect of the races and the people I have met in the last four years. I thank the good lord fore giving me the opportunity to return to running after hanging my running shoes up for ten years. I look back at those early years and don't think think I would change a thing. Running has always come easy to me and I know I can run 100 mile races well ,on 50 miles a week but the real challenge in my life right now is finishing school. I think that this is the race that has been the hardest for me to finish and I can see the finish line and think I WILL FINALLY MAKE IT!
