Running Legs

Really not a lot to say. Pretty committed to the run. Got in a 6 runs and a 10 mile ride over the last 10 days or so. Planning on another run this afternoon after soccer practice. I did a 6.2 mile run week before last to see if I could. The Run for the Son 10k is saturday and I feel somewhat confident. Looking for to a different challenge. Running with some friends that are much faster than I am. 

Very proud to say that my wife is again doing the 5k, daughter is doing the 5k and my son is doing the fun run. Should be a very fun family morning.

Also, Byers Bike Bash is May 16th and I may scale my ride back to 46 or even 25 miles instead of the 100k route. Depends on how much time on the bike I can get over the next 2 weeks.

Another strange, fun, weird event I might take part in is Fatty's 100 Miles to NoWhere. Trying to coordinate some friends to participate or at least ride with some of it with me. Cold be pretty fun to do a 2 mile loop 50 times around the neighborhood. Check out the link, very cool cancer-fighting-fund raising event.

3 Nice runs today, monday-wednesday.

3 miles on an indoor track.
4 miles around the university.
3 more miles at the track.

I took yesterday off and had planned on running today but did yardwork at lunch instead. Had 50 mph winds yesterday and wildfires going all around us. Very scary for a lot folks. 3 deaths reported so far.

Also of note today, it is the 30th anniversary of the 1979 Tornado that leveled good portions of town. My wife, as an infant, was raced away from her house by her father with her mother and sister as the tornado approached and eventually destroyed their house. Great information here.

Run for the Son 10k is in 22 days and Byers Bike Bash is a little over a month away.
