Prime running weather here in Atlanta.

And yet, there my Brooks sit, sad and lonely by the door, begging to be taken out.

II think every committed runner prays in her own way while she’s moving. It might not be the mysteries of the rosary or the lord’s prayer. It may be a line from a book or a scrap of dialogue from a movie. It may be a song or the memory of a lover’s touch or a child’s smile. Something in the act of running, the heat and rhythm and dance of your stride, connects you to the spirit. It’s the same for a 2:08 marathoner as for a 5:08 one. If you go too long without that connection, you grow strange to yourself.

i know i know, not totally kosher to be quoting him. but i love this passage. it just rings so true.

Got to use an Alter G treadmill at PT today!

So the Alter G is this super cool device that lets you walk and eventually run at a percentage of your body weight. They basically zip you in, creating a seal, and then blow it up with air so it buoys you up to the desired percentage of body weight. Example: today I walked at around 75% BW! So cool and made me feel like I’m living in the FUTURE.

Otherwise PT is super boring for an athlete, I feel like I’m doing baby exercises! I know that I have to start slow with a stress fracture but it’s hard as a semi-serious athlete to be doing exercises that don’t give me that workout high.

More Miles. More Fun!
