Final 120 Days

Stop Pre

Ran to and from the gym yesterday and took the shortest route due to an early airport departure.

Steve Prefontaine was the catalyst for the American “jogging movement” in the 1970’s.

He was literally unbeatable and held every American running record (indoors and outdoors) from 1,000 meters to the 5,000).

An opposing team created t-shirts that said, “Stop Pre”.

It didn’t work.

He was a rebel who also happened to be a runner. That’s a story for a Google search in your spare time.

RIP Steve: May 30, 1975 (car accident). He was 24.

First rain run

Hallmark valentines Cards
Love yourself. Love the temple that houses everything keeping you alive. Valentine’s Day is tomorrow.

First rain run.

Out the door at 5:15am (20 minutes ago). Cheryl remarked, “This is my first rain run.”

To which i thought, “Cool, and, it’s cold and dark too.”

So many reasons to skip.

But none of them are “because it would improve our health”.

Two-a-days

Fall hiking in Glacier
Hiking through Glacier National Park is easier if you are active before you arrive.

Two-a-days.

What?

In practice, some people do two workouts, or two rehearsals, of two simulations a day. 

Some do this to outdistance their competition. Some do it out of necessity. And some do it because they’re simply playing the hand they are dealt.

At 5:15am i’m out the door for a run with my wife. This is too early for our son, a high school senior.

He and i are out the door at 6:15am.

During Summer, we will creatively solve for a single run together.

The long way is the short cut

Walt Disney World toll plaza entrance
Study like you mean it.

The long way is the short cut.

August 6, 2018 we began running as a Family. One mailbox a day for a week.

We added an additional mailbox most weeks, but in some weeks, we didn’t add a mailbox.

Mailboxes here average 100 meters apart.

One mile would be 16 mailboxes. 

We began week 24 this morning.

Just shy of half a year and we have finally made it to one mile without stopping.

The long way is the short cut.

And yeah, study like you mean it – it reveals insights like “the long way is the short cut”.

Such a crazy dream in Spring 1999

Publix grocery check out
Yesterday at Publix.

Such a crazy dream in Spring 1999.

Run one mailbox a day for a week. Each subsequent week, add one more mailbox to the daily distance.

 Never dreamt 10 years later i’d be representing Team USA at the 2009 Masters Track and Field World Championships in Finland.

 Ps. We ran 12 mailboxes this morning. Where will we be as a Family 10 years from August 2018 (when we began 0ne mailbox a day)?
