The End

I've reached the end of my running funk this week.  9 weeks post Rocky, I think enough excuses have been made.  I've recovered fairly well, endured a few illnesses, and put on a few pounds.  I wouldn't mind the pounds if they were from muscle gain, but alas, not running does not do much for developing muscle.

So some good old fashioned flab has reared it's ugly head.  The battle is on.  I've run twice this week which is pitiful.  Being tired won't count as a reason to skip a run or a workout anymore. 

I registered for an inaugural 100 miler this week.  The Pumpkin Holler Hunnerd.  Should be a great time with some great people.

Six months to get back to where I need to be for this race.  I hope to be stronger than I was for Rocky. 


  1. WOO HOO!! I was on the course today, working out a few details. It's gonna be a beautiful run, which you'll enjoy the first lap, it'll be dark the second lap, and you won't care what it looks like on the third lap. See ya there!!

  2. They say every end is also a new beginning, good luck at moving forward towards Pumpkin Holler and a return trip to Rocky. Maybe next year will be the year I try something short like the 50 mile distance at Rocky.
