Please Donate!!!!

I have been running the Jingle Bell Run 5k for the Arthritis Foundation for that past few years.

Well this year I will not be in town to run it since I will be in Las Vegas running my 5th marathon of the year!

Since the Arthritis Foundation is important to me I’ve decided to dedicate the last 5k of my marathon (a marathon is 26.2 miles or 42.2 kilometers!!) to the cause. I’d like to raise $750 and I am half way there with less than a week to go!!!

So I ask you to please click on the picture below and donate to the Arthritis Foundation!



Is this good news?

BBC: Running ‘can slow ageing process’

Well for me it is!! I run regularly and I run slow…so does that mean I age even slower? I can hope, can’t I?

I’m sure a few of you hope I die early…but I plan to live forever!!

I really can’t say that I’m going to miss doing this but I know that I probably will. I have been running a minimum of a mile every day for the past year. Today is my last mile…1.01 miles in 8:37…and I am glad to be done and my body deserves a little rest. Now I know that a mile a day isn’t that big of a deal but after the first 6 months it becomes a bit of a drag. I am glad to say that I did it.

Back to the loop…1.01 miles in 8:42

The group was all there…more than 2 dozen of us!! I didn’t get up early and run with anyone so I was happy with just doing the hour run. By the time I hit 5 miles though I was not feeling very well…digestive issues…I had to walk a lot more than I thought I would but the alternative was to mess my pants and I’m a bit old for that!! I got 6.03 miles in just over an hour (1:00:40)

Since we are heading home today and the flight will not get us in until after midnight I had to hit the gym again…while the club is great I really don’t like to run on the treadmill! 1.08 miles in 10:00

Since the wife was doing the spa thing today I thought that it might hit the trails again today and get my run in. I didn’t see any peacocks or hens this morning but once I was done running I did feed the ducks! Ran for 9:57 and completed 1.09 miles

I didn’t want to spend all of this time in Punta Cana and not run outside! So thankfully the resort has a nice little trail around a few ponds that is dedicated to running/walking. I was able to see a peahen and her babies…would they be a brood? The humidity was a bit high but no worse than what we have back home. Got 1.01 miles in 8:54

Back in the gym today…I’ll be doing some weights too but for now it is just the mile. 1.00 mile in 9:35
