Tonight was a running night. I have to say that running is not as BLAH as it used to be. I even find myself enjoying it at times. The iPod nano certainly helps the situation. Tonight I ran in the cold and rain to the soundtrack of Hustle and Flow. Lots of good rap about bitches, tricks, and busting caps. Great motivation. haha. The reason I am running as I mentioned in a previous post is that I got talked into doing the 3M Half Marathon
in late January. I am not doing the whole run, but rather a relay with my boss. I am sure we are going to post a horrendous time since neither of us are fast runners. But it should be fun just to give it a go.
Does this look like the face of a runner?
After much thought, I have decided on two goals for myself in 2007. I wanted to make sure that the goals were realistic and achievable. I travel a lot for work so sometimes I am just not able to get out on the bike. Here are the goals:
1) Ride at least 4000 miles in 2007.
2) Be in good enough condition to enter a race by Fall.
Tomorrow I am off to Conroe, TX to meet with a very large producer of ceramic tiles to talk about how our chemicals can make their tiles better by blah blah blah. Conroe is about a 3 hour drive from my house, so at least I can avoid air travel for the first week of the year. :)
