I have been hovering around the forums at coolrunning.com the last several days. This has been spawned by my brother’s desire to run in the Indy Mini Marathon on May 6th 2006. I have been training with him and ran my first 5 miles straight today. I ran it in 50 minutes and 20 seconds. That was my longest run. Previously I had only run 4 miles. I will be building up to 10 miles in the weeks leading up to race day. On race day I will run a full 13.1 miles.
Well, everyone else is doing it, why not? You will see how my interests change from week to week. I figure it will somehow be theraputic to see what my wife sees. She knows how often I get interested in something and then just drop it like a hot potato. Since I can never remember from week to week what my interests were the week before, I figure writing it down will give me a chance to see how flighty I am.
