I was looking for a training guide to the Gate River Run.
I did the math knowing it was about 9 miles.
Went to Hal Higdon’s site.
Choose training 15k and low and behold he mentions the Gate River Run from the start!
OK, so I am really enjoying running and had a great run yesterday.
Here is another good site to get you started.
If you arent a runner, coolrunning.com has couch to 5k in 9 weeks.
OK, I keep hearing about this technique, but I am not yet a believer. Any of the 3 times I have tried it, if I walk for a minute everything seems tight when I start back.
However, I have heard one amazing success story today that raises my interest.
I ran yesterday from Key West to Fleming Key which is the last Key. 4.5 miles, 43 minutes.
Fleming Key is a military base so it is restricted. I ran from Key
West to Fleming Key all the way to the Special Warfare Undersea
This is the place were it all started 9 months ago. Last April 18th I ran my first ‘long’ run, 5 miles while on vacation in Key Largo.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
I am beside myself with excitement!!! I am moved.
I came home from the Pinewood Derby and found that yet another generous soul had donated to my race and put me over my goal of $5,000.00!!!
Oh happy day!!
After work I ran down to the library and got out Art Buchwald’s last book.
Thought it was an appropriate book that he wrote about dying on the day he died.
I just finished reading it. It ends with the eulogies prewritten. Very interesting.
OK book, very light. He is almost cavalier about death, light hearted. My perspective may be off because I found this right on. Despite his obvious agnosticism he holds death in a clear realm.
I have experienced quite a bit of death throughout life and it is a common thing to me. I likely under appreciated his book because of this (although I did enjoy getting a taste of his humor). I do appreciate that for many people reading this is the right introduction to death. It is pallatable.
It has always bewildered me how many people, even grown, havent been to a funeral, shun exposure to death, hide their kids from it. It is a verboten topic in America. If this is you, read his book.
