Friday the 13th - Rain Out

It's another one of those beautiful days in Oklahoma, the frogs are happy, the turtles are happy, the grass and all the weeds and flowers are in exstacy, but us runners that won't run when Mother Nature is angry and throwing lightning bolts all the place are a bit disappointed.

On a good note, the right side of my brain has me totally psyched up to run long this morning, now I'm not so sure I can go back to bed for another couple of hours....good grief I've been up since 3:15, oh what a nut I can be as a runner.

When they say that road racing/running can be hazardous to your health, they mention the cars and dogs and things, but they fail to add to that warning that some of your brain cells may fall out along the way from all the jiggling....no Nikki I'm not referring to you here. I'm just saying that we do some wild and strange things to beat the heat...oh and to beat the road traffic too I suppose.

Well, I'm going to try to head off to dreamland again, maybe a dream of finishing a 5k in under 25 minutes, a 10k in less than 50 minutes, a marathon under 4 hours, oh yes dream on mighty warrior......
