Friday Leftovers (Oct. 16)

I'm kinda tapped out this week from writing, both for here and my paying sites.


So here's my I'm-tapped-out-from-writing version of my Friday Leftovers.

Word Association

This week's list:

1. Your trick :: my treat
2. Bell :: Tinker
3. Five :: Fighting
4. You're crazy! :: Oh my
5. Disgust :: gross
6. Tempest :: Bledsoe
7. Bummer :: Too bad
8. Brim :: filled
9. Hose :: water
10. Lollipop :: Guild

Alright, number 4 is in reference to Guns N' Roses' "You're Crazy" at least the acoustic version, which is my preferred version... And with number 10, can you tell what movie we watched recently at the LB house?

No Letdown

I came back from the relay race on Saturday and took two days off from running. But on Tuesday I ran three miles and Thursday I ran another three. It felt great to get back to running, to get on the treadmill once more and continue running.

I'm going to try and squeeze in another run today, maybe a four-miler, before Sunday's 13-mile run. One of the things I thought might happen after the relay was to have a letdown, to kind of feel like there wasn't much to run for, to prepare for but it's quite the opposite. I am more focused now than I was before the race. I guess I kind of feel like if I can conquer this, I can do a 10K, half-marathon and even a full marathon and be okay.

So, no letdown here.

Camp Pendleton Mud Run

A year ago, I was preparing for the race of my life. I was preparing for the Camp Pendleton Mud Run, the fourth of four held a year ago.

It's crazy to think how far I've come since then. While I haven't run a marathon yet - that will happen in February - I am a much better runner now than I was a year ago.

The fourth and final Camp Pendleton Mud Run will be held Saturday, and while I did not sign up for it, I'd love love love to run it. But that enthusiasm will have to wait until 2010.

Anyway, anyone look for any last-minute Mud Run tips can check out my previous Mud Run posts.

Haha...I thought Bledsoe, after Tempest, as well. I guess that's what happens when you were a Cosby kid.

Your weight loss and progress as a runner are inspiring!

I hear the mud runs are fantastic. I have not ran yet, but you are still takes me awhile to warm up to things.
