Running…for no apparent reason…apparently

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 1:48 am

Back before the “accident” I had been sort of training to run a few local races. As a matter of fact , less than *two days* before the accident I had asked someone I work with for a list of local races to sign up for. I used to run in the Beat The Bridge, Henry Weinhards, and a coupla other races all the time and usually didn’t do to bad, I guess. I have no idea what motivates someone to run. My dad used to tell me when I was in track in HS “you’ll end up hurting your knees” and “I don’t understand why you like to run”. Dunno, don’t have an answer for you – I just do. People who don’t run don’t understand I guess would be my answer. Well I’m starting again – finally – and I’m planning to run in a few local races in December. I didn’t really put this here because I felt that anyone would find it particularly interesting, but more that if I put it here then I’m more likely to do it. Kind of a ‘no backing out now’ thing. Silly reason probably. I try to find motivation where I can. Here are some links if anyone else is interested: ontherun and nwrunner

I’m finally going to send in my Mountaineers app next week. Got my backpack and I’m ready to meet Smokey The Bear. Hope he’s friendly…. 😉 Oh yeah, guess I better let Trav know so he can send in his app too….
