Hmm...

Something truly strange, or not so much?

If a tree falls in the forest and there is nobody around to hear it...

Hmm...

Explain this?

Running Log

Ran for the first time in a new pair of kicks today.  NB MR1906SC to be specific.  This is the first new pair of running shoes I've purchased since the original pair when I started running again back in March of last year.  That old pair is starting to look a bit sad, but anyway.

I was a bit concerned on how the new shoes would work out, but it was awesome!  Lots more energy return, more grip, and easier to stay off my heels.

5 miles, 9:30 average pace over that distance, which is a new PR for 5 miles, and I felt awesome!

Best vending machine ever?

Nice

Was it named Patrick?

Think this will work as my attitude for today...

Running log

I slacked off a lot in December.  Especially the last two weeks, as there was a lot of traveling and a lot of partying.  Nonetheless, on Thursday, I ran 3.1 miles [5k] and did it with a 9:22 average mile pace, which was a PR.  Today, 4 miles, 9:33 average mile pace.   Today wasn't my fastest 4 mile run, but it was maybe 5 seconds off the PR mile pace.  And I totally didn't push myself on today's run.  I was just out there going "whatever", and hit the Garmin at the end of the run to see what it added up to, not really caring about the pace.

One of the most memorable parts of the last two runs was a couple of walkers today.  As I ran past them, one of them remarked to the other one about the craziness of runners.  I took that personally, as it affirmed I'm part of that crazy tribe  :-)

It tried, but I'm still kicking and am actually pretty happy

Seriously...

Updated take on an old idea...

Indeed

Well...

Hah!

Done this at work on more than one occasion...

If I was that dude on the right, I'd start running away immediately
