Today, June 1, 2011, is National Running Day! You may run alone, but on National Running Day, we celebrate together! On this day, runners everywhere share their passion for a lifestyle that is one of the best, and simplest, ways to stay fit—and so much more. You can head out solo to clear your mind, gab with your regular running peeps, or turn an unsuspecting friend into a running fiend. This day is for us!
Spread the word....tell us why you love to run!
I have to admit, it was too hot for me to handle this morning! I ran the 15K at Whire Rock Lake this morning and perished at about 5 miles into the race. I managed to hang on, after puking at 5 miles, to finish in 1:17....not my best showing by far! 95 degree heat coupled with minimal shade and way too fast first 3 miles was my undoing. This is one of the times when the doctor needs to take her own advice!
Congrats to all the winners who handled the heat much better than I did! My running peep, Heather Wallace, took second in our age group with a 1:13 and looked strong as she passed me walking at 5.5 miles! Lot's of Lake Grapevine Runners and Walkers were out and the club made a good showing in the age group ranks including a first place overall woman's winner!
RunOn! was a great host and Stampede beer (infused with B vitamins) tasted wonderful after the run! Nothing better than a few beers after a less than successful race! And a good excuse to drink a few beers before 9:30 in the morning!
I survived for another day! And the technical shirts and hats were a great give away!
Run Happy! Keep Cool....the summer has just begun!
You have got to check out this story! A 101 year old man decides he wants to run a marathon. He decides to start with a half-marathon which takes him 5 hours because he stops for a beer.
What an inspiration (just kidding), but hey...the guy is still running at 101 years old! Maybe he knows something we don't. PS. He smokes too....check it out...It's at least good for a chuckle!
