Life catches up

Life has finally caught up with me, and I’ve had trouble finding time to blog. (it was a choice – running or blogging, and running won out. Sorry).

In any case, there have been quite a few decent runs in the last week. Nothing like the Running Chick (who continues to be one of my heros; check out her survey of blogging runners if nothing else), but it’s been good.

8/2 – Had to catch a plane to San Antonio around noon, but managed to wrap up last minute items at the office and sneak in 3 miles or so before heading to the airport. I was proud of that, and even showered so I didn’t stink up the plane.

8/3 – Knocked out about 4 miles from the hotel, all in a straight line. Running in Texas is different than running in New England, to say the least. I was on the road just as the sun crested the horizon; on the way back running into the sun, I thought I could actually feel the photons pushing against me. I could definately feel the heat start to reflect around me.

8/7-8 – Worked my butt off on the swingset in the back yard. I’ll post a photo later, but I’m counting moving approximately a ton of lumber as working out.

8/10 – Ran with Christian for the first time in a while. Heard a funny line on Law and Order that night.

So, yes, I have been slacking a bit, and beer and mexican food in San Antonio did bad things for my waistline. But I’ve felt better on the road. Another run with Chris tommorrow, and hopefully some time on the bike on Friday and Saturday.

Hope everyone else is enjoying summer as much as I am.
