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.

  • Isn't it funny how we'll look out the window at the moon, and then we notice it's not the moon but a streetlight? Also what's funny is how we do this every night.
