Round 4

I was hoping to make this year my return to a healthy relationship with running. No longer content with just swimming, I wouldn’t mind getting out in the the fresh air and beating the pavement with my own two feet. Not that I want to return to mega-mileage races, I wouldn’t mind making it a natural part of my life.

All though I eek’ed in 100 miles (counting dog walks) in Round 1, I haven’t made it even halfway in either Round 2 or 3. Today starts the 4th round of Run-a-go-go, Rachael‘s fabulous idea (and Scout‘s blog-tastic community building and Adam‘s funky programming skillz). Wanna go 100 miles between today and December 31st?

Runnin' Rhino - Threadless, Best T-shirts Ever
In perfect timing, Threadless.com printed a lil’ bit of inspiration today. Sadly, it’s sold out in a Men’s M, so it’s gonna have to be a large for me. It’ll match the new ‘do. Even sadlier, I didn’t get outside today.

How come you can never get the runs when you want ‘em?

    That shirt is the cutest! I started running about 3 months ago and I was so surprised with myself and what I could do. I was running 20 miles a week! Now that the cold is here though I haven’t gotten out much, however I have been using the elliptical but the workout is not the same.

    I hope you are able to get out and do some running :)

    We just got the Unicorn one in homage to Iowa Flopper’s place of birth.

    I’m not gonna running anytime soon, but I promise to ride my bicycle to all the yarn stores… Oh, and I guess to work.
