Volunteer or Run the PADS Run/Walk 5K - September 12

I helped guide traffic last year at one corner. Will I run this year or help? Either way, I'm involved. Any area runner will know where PADS HQ is. It is where the zero marker is at the Prairie Path.

Just show up between 6 – 6:30 am on Saturday morning September 12 at the PADS HQ at the Zero Mile marker of the Prairie Path at Liberty and Childs. If you volunteer, a volunteer shirt will be provided.

When a man steps out to workout after a long layoff, he cannot help be insecure. After all, he weighs more, and that added weight is not muscle or handy capillaries. No, no. It is pure fat, as if purity were the issue here. Solid fat? Hardly. That's a contradiction. Nothing solid about it. Just fat. It is heavy to cfarry, it heats up the body, and, the most important thing -- it does not help.

That's me, and more. An especially challenging week needed flushing out, and I have time today. No rain, not yet.

I tossed on my togs.

With my stiff neck, I wondered if I would last. My goal was a humble 15:00. I ran a little more.

My splits? I dare mention them. How did I speed up that much? I need to pace better.

Tomorrow Begins Tomorrow

When else could tomorrow begin?

I have a couple mid-week days off this week, and intend to put them to good use.

Allistair Cookie presents Chariots of Fur (Parody of Chariots of Fire)

Given I have not run enough to even post as of late, I looked for inspiration in a classic source. Which runners are legendary? Grover and Cookie Monster.
