New Race, Random Question, & Super Heroes all up in yo grill!

Random thought – I wonder if the parents of Miles Davis were runners and that’s why they named him that.

Anyway, it’s been a good couple weeks of running. This past weekend I got in a long run with WRRC. We ran to one Dallas running landmark to another and back (White Rock Lake & Katy Trail).

Kind of a pointy laying down dog.

The next day I ran a solo run around one of the ‘burbs. It went well, except for the one stretch with all the bobcat droppings all over the sidewalk…I was looking over my shoulder the whole way!!! “Good kitty. Nice kitty.”

Kind of a

Kind of a cartoon caveman with an giant head.

Unfortunately I had to miss yoga this weekend, but it was for a good reason…the boy’s birthday present! We took him to see Marvel Live!

The Hulk was there too. And he SMASHED!!!!!

Despite the loud explosions, the boy had fun. And he was doubly thrilled cause his Godmother sent him a Pirate Ship Kite that’s gonna be like bigger than he is once put together!

It's going to be big.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that this coming weekend I’m running in a race! It’s the Hot Chocolate 15k in Dallas.

Can't wait to get this medal!

I think I’ve only raced one other 15k, so I’m not really sure how to pace this distance. But I’ll do what I can. Go big or go home, right? Booyah!


How bout you? Ever run a Hot Chocolate Race? Ever flown a kite bigger than you? Have you ever gotten smashed?

I Got to Run!!!

It had been over three weeks since I took a running tumble and jacked up my knee.  But I finally felt like it was time to give a run a go-go.  This was Saturday.  We had some nice weather and I wanted to take advantage.  I did a lengthy warm up to make sure everything was loose.  Then I hit the streets.

I went to my go-to little 5k route around the town.  I took it nice and easy, listening to my body.  The knee felt a little stiff, but no major pain.  It felt good to run again.

It was super windy, but I didn’t complain, I was just happy to be outside and moving!  In fact, afterwards we took advantage of the weather and wind and took the kite on a walk.

On Sunday, I decided to play it safe and not join my buds for a trail run, but I did join them at Lululemon for some yoga.  Different instructor, and she challenged us.  I was sweating and shaking all over the place, but like she said, “Shaking is weakness leaving the body.”  I’ll go with that.

How bout you?  How did it feel your first time back after an injury?  Last time you flew a kite?  Any weakness leave your body recently?
