And I'm Back in the Game

Yo yo yiggity yo. I am back and although I am guessing I wasn't missed I am super excited.

Since you last heard from me I was super off running. I still kind of am. I mean I love how I feel when I am done running but the actual drag my ass of the couch, stuff my feet into the running shoes and hit the pavement shit that I was pretty off. But now I have been eating shit and hardly exercising for a few weeks and Sunday when I felt like ass after running 2.5 miles, even if it was in 24:42 minutes (yes ma'am... that is under 10 minute miles), I decided I need to get my butt back into gear. That last thing I need is to turn into a beached whale with no friends.

So its been decided. I am going to join my old running group and run through this wonderful Chicago winter in their Winter Warriors training session. If I had over a thousand dollars to spend at my disposal I would run the half marathon in the Bermuda Triangle with the group at the end of training session... but since I make almost negative dollars a week I will just train and pretend to run a half in the end. If anything this will just keep me in better shape then I am in my current beached state.

Wish me luck. I will promise to run every single training run, come wind or snow or sleet or hail. I will get back into shape. And I will try not to carbo load just for shits and giggles. I will also work on core exercises so that maybe I will get some relief from my achin' back. Yes it is still hurting. No I am not doing anything about it. So that's that. Please feel free to write mean hurtful comments if I miss any runs. I mean you won't be able to because I am going to run all of them... but in just in case.

Hey, that's great news! I wish I could say I was joining, consider me there in spirit, and maybe if you don't tell anyone, I'll come out there and meet you for a long run or two.
