I decided to run in the evening today since the weather was so bad this morning. I felt very "clunky" while running though. I don't think my body is used to running in the evening.

I'm still contemplating the BCS Marathon on the 8th. I seem to have lost some of my desire and drive to do it and now my running isn't feeling great...I guess I'll decide at the last minute.

My Running Route

2 Corinthians 4:16-18

16 So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. 17 For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, 18 as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL ..... !!!

Callie is home for a few days so I got to run with her for the first six miles. She has made a lot of progress in the last couple of months and is now training to run the Cowtown Full Marathon.

Today was 6 miles at a somewhat easy pase and then 2 pushing it a little.

We were going to run a 5K tomorrow but I believe we have backed out not wanting to spend the money on a non-certified, short course, cheap t-shirt, and crummy prize race.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

I dedided to bail on the 5K today as no one, except Callie, wanted to go to the race. I wasn't really very excited because last year the race was short, the T-shirts they gave away were crummy and the metals were very cheap. Callie and I decided to just run at home.

I went out and ran 8.75 miles on my own and then 3 miles with Callie.

I ignored the hills and just ran on pace trying to drop my pace each mile. I did a pretty good job, even if I say so myself.

Then .75 miles by myself @ 8:16 pace, 147 HR.

Then 3 miles with Callie. Callie"s running is improving very quickly!

7:43/143, 7:48/149, 7:29/153

Total Miles 11.75

Temp 35-50, 28% Humidity, 26 Degree Dew Point  -  Perfect running weather.
