Mark Be Nimble


Today we had the annual Church wide garage sale. That means my Sweetheart and I worked all yesterday and today setting up, moving, selling, talking, you name it we did it! We are tired! There happened to be a very nice bike in the sale. I couldn't resist taking the bike for a spin. I was really moving, weaving and darting through the parking lot. I could of passed for Flash Gordon, or so I thought. Suddenly a car moves!!! I have to slam on the hand brakes, oops, hit the front one...head over heels goes the Pastor! Very embarrassing, as the entire sale comes to a stop and looks my way. But up like a shot I jumped, after I untangled myself, acting like I was no worse for the wear....some bleeding but nothing I didn't experience as a kid. Now I want a bike!
Came home, rested, looked at your blogs, got motivated, thanks Kara, and went out for a 4 miler. First mile warm up then three in the aerobic range with a 9:45 best.
This is the best mileage week I've had since the marathon, 25.73. I look forward to running into the forest Monday. My new secret place awaits! Peace!

Tengo Hambre!

    Man I got hungry while I was running today! I guess I forgot to take in enough calories! It cost me the last couple of miles some disco...
