- Sally sat in the hot, humid, muddy field at Long Bay Beach Park in December 2009 when I took on and conquered my first full marathon at Reggae Marathon. I had given her a target time of just over 4 hours. Wow, did I ever blow that! I crossed the finish line in 5 hours and 25 minutes. For over an hour while I was battling the heat and my own mental demons, I also thought about her sitting their worrying! The tears I shed at the finish were for lots of reasons that day not the least being for her support!
- Sally puts up with stinky running gear! There I said it! I sweat. A lot. It's common for me to loose 5 lbs of body weight on a normal run. We live in an apartment. It's a good size but... where do we put the stinky running gear. Again, a saint.
- Sally put up with 3 years of my foot injuries. Mostly caused by me of course not respecting my age and trying too many new things too fast. The break from running last September when I broke the bones in my right foot was a much needed break (Whew...I think I ran that word into the ground). It gave me time to re-calibrate.
So I'm back running comfortably. I do track workouts once a week to improve my speed. I run varied loops around home most early mornings. And I mix it up with some strength training. Wow! Can this really be me? Who is this new RunninGuy?
Until next time...
