Ahh YES, SUCCESS!! 10 miles, piece of cake!

Man, I was scared, driving to the Sunday 10 miler. But HAD to go, it would have killed me to have not gone!.....This time, I DIDN'T ask Sabrina how far we had run at mile 1.8 (previous weeks when I coulda sworn we were well into mile 4)....I think I did finally ask at about 6.4, don't remember...

Training IS coming together! I run with the dogs in the forest on Tuesday and Thursday, go to the gym (run and do machines) on Wednesday and Friday, run the forest (or Woodlands 5k when it's going on) on Saturday mornings, and the long run on Sunday....Let's not forget riding MOTOCROSS 2-3 times a week, too...haven't been in 1.5 weeks :(:(

I'm about to sign up for the San Antonio Half Marathon and will likely forward this link to my BEST running buddy in the world, SONYA! We've run together since 1998....Hell, I'll strike up a brand new Sonya topic! Coolest chic anywhere! I'd wager that we've easily run over 100 races together and likely run together in excess of 400 times. We've talked about a lot of stuff...she's funny as hell talking about her family and idiots she has to deal with...

And I might have a new running buddy, Sabrina....we'll see...Sunday, I went into some pretty lengthy running chat about humidity that's rusting expensive stuff in my lab, environmental controls for my CNC machine tools, "ghosting" the hard drives on said CNC machines, peak oil and our voracious and greedy appetite for OIL! And exciting new alternatives! Hell, I may never see Sabrina again!!

The previous paragraph will totally ring with Sonya!! She's probably laughing and rolling her eyes. Sonya can totally place and envision what I just wrote. Hey man, it's who I am. She'll probably come on here 'talking trash'! :):):)

PACK A LUNCH, SONYA!! I'm gonna GO LIKE HELL in San Antonio!! :):)

Been there - might be back there soon. Totally relate to the "we've only gone 1.8 miles - it sure feels like 4 miles" scenario!
