It's almost December and my self-assigned month-long vacation from running. I may have given myself a head start this week though. I've been out of town in Tampa again since Sunday night, and it's been a bit busy at work. Still, 3 consecutive 6:00 am wakeup calls have not resulted in any runs yet, but I'm definitely going to give it another fair shot tomorrow morning!
In the meantime, I haven't felt terribly guilty about not running, but I have sort of missed it. I've also missed not having much to write about! Plus I'd hate to think I packed all my running stuff and will fly home tomorrow night w/o using any of it. Maybe something good will happen tomorrow morning!
Hey, has anyone read this post from Donald about next year's Mardi Gras marathon (and half marathon) on Feb 5th? I know I've already passed on Austin, which is on Feb 19th, but the first major run after Katrina does sound like it will have some historical significance and could be an interesting event for those running it. Apart from the usual charity donations, I personally haven't done much else, and this might be one small opportunity for a "show of support". Practically speaking, I don't know how much of an impact this can have, but perhaps every little bit helps? Anyone else considering this run, or already signed up?
