Well, the truth is I still haven't really had a good run since my nightmare race on New Year's eve. I was going to post all about how horrible it was, but I will just say that it was in deed horrible, that I ended the race in tears and that I haven't started training yet. I have been going to the gym faithfully and doing the elliptical, bike and treadmill...but not a focused training run. I'm still in a runner's depression. That said, I think that I really need to go and see this film on Thursday. I'm sure it can help me get out of my rut. And my poor Christmas present (Garmin 305) is collecting dust. Is it common to get discouraged and avoid running all the while developing anxiety about an up coming race that you aren't training for? So I am officially putting my bad running experience under the rug, dusting off my running shoes, putting on a happy face and deciding to stop feeling sorry for myself.
So here is a little video clip that I made a few years ago. The footage isn't clear and it might even be hard to see, but it is of the Spudman. I thought that those of you who are doing the Spudman this year might like it. My friend Andy actually won his age category this year. He is an amazing athlete.
Anyway, enjoy this silly Spudman video.
I am going for a real run tonight. If I don't I owe you all $1000.00.
I swear. ~Shake hands! (Now hold me to it!)
