A bunch of sentences that start with "I"

Monday, October 22, 2012

I wanted to get back to 160 #s before I left for Rio but the trip starts tomorrow and I weighed in at 174 today.

I ran a half marathon yesterday and beat my best previous time by twelve minutes.
I felt good about not taking advantage of the pizza and baked macaroni lunch that was included in the fee.
I canceled that out at the end of the day by eating four peanut butter sandwiches between diner and bedtime.
I am telling myself that I must have needed them or I would not have succumbed.

I tracked down my high-school X-country coach whom I have not seen in 40 years. He still lives in my hometown so we're taking him to lunch tomorrow before I pick up my brother and head for the airport. It should be an interesting reunion.

I weigh less than I did the last time I ran for him.

I don't know what my internet access will be like for the next couple weeks, but I'll try keep up even if I don't post.

I feel like I'm the last person on earth without a cell phone or tablet.

    Dude! You can't weigh yourself the day after a half marathon. No telling how much water your muscles retained after the run. Salts, who knows. I don't think any weigh in the day after an endurance race is accurate.

Have a great time in Rio!

p.s. I held out on the cell phone for a long time, but now I can't imagine life without one. And they really can help in an emergency.

    The HM is a great success, and its positive momentum outweighs all the negatives for the day : )

I'm not sure about the tablet, but you may really be the last one without cell phone...
But it may be a good thing.

Enjoy your journey!
