I volunteered to take pictures of the OKC Landrunner's marathon training run this morning. The only problem is that last night I had the thought that I don't have to do a long run in the morning so why don't I drink some wine! I haven't been able to drink much on Saturday nights lately so this was a welcome occurrence. So after a couple glasses of wine and a late night watching movies, getting up at 6 A.M. was kinda difficult. Once I got out there, though, I had a great time. I was somewhat worried that some runners would not take kindly to having their pictures taken while they were running 12 miles. Actually most of them had a ball! I got arms in the air, I got thumbs up, and one or two whoo hoo's! Runner's are definitely a different breed. I am not a photographer and I had some trouble with the lighting but I got some good pictures so I hope everyone's happy. I rreeeaaally wanted to be running with them, my leg felt fine and once I got the cobwebs out of my head I felt like I could have run with them. Oh well, I am going to run with my friend from work tomorrow so I can wait. I have some self control, see!
Since I didn't run I decided to go to my gym which is at the University of Central Oklahoma. I love going there, it makes me feel like a college kid. Since I never got to do the in-resident college life I enjoy acting like a college kid every now and then. I try to use words like "totally" and "like" a lot while I'm there. I think it helps me fit in. I always wear a hat so no one can tell I'm loosing my hair. They have an indoor running track there which I thought I would like but have actually grown to loath. How can anyone run that many laps and not become the uni-bomber! It drives me insane. Even with an Ipod I get bored and loose focus on running. Anyway, today I did something that looks like an elliptical glider but acts like a Stairmaster. I have no idea what it's called but it really worked my quads which was good. Then I grabbed a quiet corner and did some Pilate moves. I can like totally do Pilate's on my own, like totally rad! So I was like you know this workout guy, and everyone else was like Oh my God look at him, and I was like, yea, and you know totally sweating.
Maybe I'll hit a kegger and streak the quad tonight. You know, like anything goes.... totally.
Thanks for listening
