Labor of Love

10 miles on deck for tomorrow's long run.  My goal is only 3 walk/GU/water breaks.  Its going to be hot, so I'm going to try to get out even earlier than normal.

I issued a challange to my non-runner friends to run a half marathon with me on October 15th.  So far only one person has said that they would do it.  My thoughts are along the lines of if I bring only one person into running "how great shall be my joy".

Right?  Isn't that the ultimate goal for all of us runners? To share our love of the sport and get our friends and loved ones and the fat people of the world out running?

I'll be doing 12 miles on October 16... in prep for my marathon in November! Eek!

I've decided to use the walk/run Jeff Galloway method though, with 4 minute run and 1 minute walk intervals. It's how I've been training and I love it so far!

You can acheive your goal!!! I know it!

I'm so with you October 15th mentally. . . physically is another story. I want to be there. That's the first step, right?

wait, is that why you got me to run the 1/2 with you, because I'm fat? Josh paid you to, didn't he?
