Literally. Run with me.
I'm supposed to be running Twin Cities 10 mile race on October 6th, and so far, my training has been minimal. While trying to live a minimalist lifestyle at home (and failing), such an attitude cannot be transferred to my workout regimen (or lack thereof).
I used to like to run. I guess I still do, but I'm having a hard time getting into it consistently.
THE TIME IS NOW. Well, maybe not right now. But soon. Tomorrow. The time is tomorrow!
I look like a runner, and people from my past remember me as a runner (among other things), but now that is not me. Not today anyway.
I'm not "too fast" for you. If anything, I'm too slow. If you're a speed demon, ask me to meet you at the track, or to tag along for a few miles during your long run. If you're regular speed, ask me to join you on any of your runs. I know I do much better when running/training with someone. Many of us do.
I've got to get back into this, ASAP. I know I won't run this 10 mile race as fast as I have in years past, but I also have been blessed with a fairly decent amount of athleticism, and I think I can get at least to the point of finishing 10 miles without dying, if I get my ass in gear over the next 3.5 weeks.
That said, are you running soon? Can I join you? Call, text, email, facebook me, etc.... I could really use some support with this.
