respecting the distance

Posted in #godforbid, Marathon on June 28, 2014 by sambycat

so, i have heard here and in many other places that one should “respect the distance”. i fear the distance. the distance sees me, it smells my fear AND IT LAUGHS OUT LOUD. obviously, with training, one starts to build confidence. the smell of flop sweat becomes less pungent, the distance senses the change.

 

it is my goal to respect the distance. for now i’m just gonna eyeball it from across the street, nod and say “SUP?”…. and keep on run…er…wogging.

 

I’ve completed week 3 of the #FITUP/Galloway full training program. today was a 3 mile wog. changed up my walk/run ratio to the dazzling 40s/1:10s. pace was ~15”/mi this morning with the temps being in the upper 80s, very humid. but felt ok. although, generally, my feet have been kinda sore. more like the outside edges. my shoes are reasonable low mileage, so i don’t think its that. i think its my increased weight on my increasing mileage! but hopefully i’ll be making a dent in that soon.

 

i’d asked on Facebook WTH people think about after mile 15 – not sure how i’ll be feeling about the distance then!!

 

tomorrow i plan to bike and do a set of myrtles. for my girdles.

have you seen the “Free Billy” campaign over at “Free the Disney Goat”? It’s silly but fun. There is a video and some audio telling the story of our favorite caprine friend from big thunder mountain telling us what he’d like to do if he only had 3 days….

 

i *think* he may have met his goal, but it’s still kind of fun and he does have a twitter feed. i kind of feel he needs to hit the bibbidi bobbidi boutique, myself.

for the record, i find the “viral” attempt at marketing a touch more fun and believable then the recent dragon stuff.  JM.02

it’s almost our one year wedding anniversary, which, according to emily post et. al, is the paper anniversary. trace instructed me NOT to gift him with toilet paper. well, cross that one of my list….

so we are celebrating a wee bit early, with a nice lunch yesterday and a turn around the kimbell art museum, a movie, lazing around today and an exchange of gifts –

from me to he –

from he to me –

AND the tinkerbell piece is numbered 1/295! so here is to 294 years, my sweet! and thank you – thank you for loving me, putting up with and tolerating me at times and here’s to continuing to build towards a great, big, beautiful tomorrow!
