Hey. I am gonna blog, but before I blog I am gonna take a bit of space here to give a hugely massive shout out to brother Pete and Sister Kristin. I have been down here in Charlottesville Va. for a little over 6 weeks now and these 2 have been absolutely amazing to me. I have not been treated this well and coddled like this since I was a little baby. It blows my mind how rad these two have been. I could go on and on about their awesomeness, but that make for a pretty boring blog, so I’ll just say Love ya P&K, sorry I keep eating all your food! I have seriously overheard this conversation 7-8times whilst here;
And then I did folks, I did get my shit together! That was a long time ago and since then I’ve gotten lean and mean. I’ve got my mojo back! I’m fit and super pumped to roll in Boston. Crazy how that works eh? Hard work, who knew?
To run a fast marathon ya can’t be dicking around. Marathons are hard man, and you have to leave no stone unturned in preparing properly. Once that last specific marathon grind starts, pretty much everything else stops. Sure, balance in life is super important, but the 8-10 weeks before a big race, there is no time for distractions. I have yet to maintain any sort of relationship with a lady through a whole marathon build-up. Ladies are finicky and they expect attention and such, not gonna happen. It’s probably not healthy or normal, but I’ve made my decision, girls come and go, I wanna run fast!
So now we gotta taper, kinda. We do a two week taper, the first week isn’t so bad. I still get to put in 100miles this week and do a couple little stinger workouts. But the last week before the race? Eff that week, that week sucks.
Blogs also really suffer during the last few weeks before the race. I don’t do anything, so I have nothing to talk about…hmm…maybe a story from my past? Well, after 88blogs I have used up all my good stories…hmm…Ok, well that isn’t gonna work.
How about we have a discussion. Let’s talk about gay marriage, that seems to be a popular thing in the news. Just kidding, I’m not gonna talk about that. This is one of those topics where you are either preaching to the choir or speaking to deaf ears. It’s frustrating.
Okay, well I’m gonna go to the gym and sit in the Sauna, I love sauna, so relaxing. Just wish there was less sweaty old man balls in the sauna, kinda takes away from the appeal.
Alright folks, have a great one. Peace.
