On a Roll in 2010

So you know how we all roll into the new year every year and we talk about all the things we want to do different or better. Well I for one always like to do that. I remember my old high school coach Mr. Kleyman saying that even the best races you can always find something you could do better as well as even the worst races you can find something you did pretty good at. I have tried to live my life in all ways that way.

For 2010 in my running world I decided I need to put forth a honest effort and try to be better at sticking with things no matter how hard they get. With my daily runs that meant getting out no matter what, even if that meant running on the dreaded treadmill this winter. I told myself I would have a 3 mile minimum for distance. I figured if I felt like I needed a real easy day 3 should do the trick. I also know I need to do workouts once more. Man I have been so bad with this for far to long.

I am happy to report that so far everything has been working out pretty good. I have run everyday this year so far and even better I have been feeling pretty good doing it. I have had a few days where I just did not feel it but got out there or in two different cases even ran on the treadmill. I know it sounds silly at this point since the year is only 12 days old but I am pretty happy about it. I even am a bit excited to be putting a race schedule together. I hope everyone else is having a good start to there new year as well. See you at the trails/roads/ metrodome/ or even treadmill !!

Thanks man. Yea so far so good in 2010. So what did you think about that psycho wyco course ?

the event is very well run. the course is a ten-mile loop with 2000 feet up/down. it is historically very sloppy. much of it is on horse trails and at that time of year they are often pretty beat up. if they get snow, and then it warms up on race day - they will have serious mud.
