Run With Me

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.
