This Thing.

Boy, I tell you sometimes I don't always get this thing.  Yesterday I woke up, and read the blogs in my reader, and normally blog after, but it felt like it would be a chore, so I was like screw it, I am going back to bed.  Even today, I don't really feel like doing this, but I am up nearly 2 hours before I have to go into work, so I guess I will do it. 

I do want to explain some things about me.  This goes back a long time ago, but I am insecure in ways.  I was never good at asking girls out in my day, because I hate, and fear rejection more than anything.  It may seem I am a blunt asshole, but really I protect myself from rejection. 

People always misunderstand people.  It is human nature.  We tend to put higher and better attributes on people, because we want to see the good in the World, and hope for good stuff.  People are not perfect.  Our thoughts are never always pure.  All of us.  If you are looking for perfection, and a perfect life, and perfect everything you won't find it.  Accept life for the good stuff, and accept life for the shit that is bound to come your way.

I did have a successful training weekend I think.  I got my 20+ on Saturday, and let me tell you it was hard.  20 milers are always hard anyway, but we had to deal with a 5.5-6 mile stretch against 20+ MPH winds with 30+ MPH gusts.  I mean really, like a 20  miler isn't hard enough.  I had 6 miles in when we started, but we were running toward my house, so I didn't have to go all the way back to the bike  shop.  I could finish home.  I calculated the distance, and it happened Jerry and Cathy could get 16.  They got 16.5, and I got 20+ when I ran home.  Cath had to finish her route downtown, but we could all run together.  I thought it might be a lonely run early, because Cath and Jerry put a gap on me, but Cathy had to tie her shoe, and we ran together the rest of the way. 

Like I said the wind was brutal.  When we stopped for drinks, we couldn't stand too long, because we were getting really cold.  I don't remember getting so cold so quick before.  It really was tough conditions.  Even when I made my turn for home a gust of wind hit me, and nearly knocked the wind out of me.  It was really a crazy 20 mile run.  The end of the day you are glad you got it done, and you know that is a run that will help you in the future. 

Jerry, and I followed with a 6 miler yesterday, and we started off ouch ouch ouch ouch, but things loosened up, and got it in. 

That is about it I guess.  :)

That is it for today!!!    :)

Thanks for reading!!!   :)

Hope Everyone has a Great and Awesome Day!!!   :)

xo's!!!   :)

Love You All!!!   :)

p.s.  one thing I learned yesterday about my run is the ouch ouch ouch to the things loosened up.  On Wednesday if I am feeling a bit beat up, I can do a longer warm up to loosen up, and I don't have to go all out 5K speed.  I can ease back.  That is  my plan anyway.  :)

Love You All  xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
