Fatted The Run

I had no business trying to run 6 miles today. When Tiger Woods says something like "I fatted the ball into the water", that's how I felt, like I fatted out a run today. Barely.

Running has taken such a back seat that my stamina is nowhere near what it used to be. In the past 5 weeks, I've been to Detroit, Pittsburgh, Louisville, Houston, Austin, Nashville, and Pittsburgh again. Short in and out trips, but still. I've only eeked out a run every weekend or so, and I haven't been keeping up with your blogs. I'm sorry.

I'll get back eventually. There's something waiting at the end of the year that I can't miss, won't miss.


Finally!

Well that letter will put some purpose in your sneakers. Time to write up a plan, young feller.
You're gonna love New York.

Ditto Jeanne and David. You've waited a long time to run NY and you won't be disappointed.

I'm running, like, super fast 12 minute miles right now if you are looking for a training partner.

Glad to see you back Rich. I had the same feeling today at the 25k and I have been strugling for weeks but slowly I'm getting the feel back and you will too

I don't understand the Wood's quote; my fault: my english is bad because I'm italian. N.Y. is waiting for you, be ready for it.

Anne said...

I don't get the quote either, and I am a native English speaker! Well, I may not speak Tiger but I do know Rich and it's good that you check in with us from time to time. We miss you.
