This Saturday I am running in the Beach to Bay relay marathon in Corpus Christi, TX.  Am I ready for it?  Hell no.  But I am part of a team that is relying on me and I gotta do what I gotta do.  And right about now, that mostly consists of not dying.

I have been doing some running in preperation for this weekend.  What I’ve noticed is that I don’t do well when I run on a track.  I do much better when I am on a treadmill or running from point A to point B.  For some reason, I can’t run in a circle.  Or at least I can’t do it with any consistency.  Another thing is that I find myself running better in the heat.  I have ran at night, but it just gets too cool and that slight breeze that you would think would be welcome actually bothers me.  I can’t explain it.  I know it doesn’t make sense.  Any of you experience anything like that?

I’m a little bummed out that I had ordered a handheld HD camera on Amazon with the hopes of having it this weekend.  So far, it hasn’t arrived.  The worst part is that I ordered it in early April.  I knew they were backordered, but I had hopes anyway.  So that leaves me with my trusty old Sony Cybershot.  I’ll be posting pics of the event later.

Feel free to wish me luck.  I will need plenty of it.

  • This looks like a fun event! You’ll at least have some nice scenery running that area of the coast. Good luck!! :)

  • Run, Dave, run!

  • You’re one up on me, man. I’ll run at the gym, but that map seems to indicate a great deal of distance. I’d most definitely die. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that you have better luck than I would. :)

  • Jan:

    Sounds fun! Good luck!

    I love the nice cool breeze in the evenings. It’s a welcome change since I normally run on my lunch hour at noon.

Today's Deep Thought

  • My parents used to abandon me a lot as a child. In the morning, they'd take me to my school and then abandon me there, until school got out. Then at night, after they tucked me in bed, they'd abandon me and go to sleep in their own bedroom. Sometimes they'd let me sleep with them in their room, but if I started playing my guitar they'd take me back to my bedroom and abandon me again. Once, they abandoned me for a whole week, at my grandparents' house.
