Running with Hibbs
So today I got out with my best friend Steve Hibbs. Steve is the one who got me running so many years ago. I was a burned out soccer player looking for something and Steve told me about how much he like cross country running. So after some talk I went out and the rest is history. It was one of the best things I have done in my life. Life changing really when you think about it.
Steve met me over at my parents house since he lives in the area and with my folks watching the kids that works good. Steve also brought over Charlie his 8 1/2 month old son so my parents could see him. Plus it is always fun getting the two boys togeather even if it was just for a short while.
We desided to go for like a 7 mile run. It was crazy to be running while it was lightly snowing in April. For the last time I am sick of this weather !! The run was great per normal with Steve. Being best friends we can always talk up a storm. Tonight the topic was about why it would be so great if pro players did not always take the most $$ and stay with there life long teams. The pace always gets faster as we get yaping. So every so often we have to calm down so we do not kill ourselves. Funny how as we get older this has happen. Back in the old days we would not say anything and just hammer ourselves into the ground.
I did a few running drills after the run. I need to do more of that. All in all I felt good. So far it has been a good week.
I have attached a picture from the U2/ Pearl Jam show Steve and I saw in Hawaii in December. Front row baby !!!
