Keep on Running

Last birthday I was hit with the realization that I was getting older than I used to be (duh!).
And after a very bad hangover the following morning, I decided I was going to try to be healthier.
With that started my recent running infatuation. Luckily my wife not only was supportive of it, but has been my running buddy all along, and in those dates that I'm lacking the discipline to get up and run in the morning she has managed to kick me out of bed (and vice versa).
After running my first 10K a month ago and struggling through most of it (what Nike idiot decided to do a 6:30 pm race in the middle of a Texas summer??). We slacked off a bit, but this past week we signed up for my second 10K race, the IBM Uptown Classic (http://www.uptownclassic.com/cms/).
Today I ran my 4 mile segment, and I hope to run 5.5 next weekend. While the running part sucks most of the time, the feeling of achievement and satisfaction right after it is awesome.
I am loving running in fall weather too, since it's sunny and still cooler at 9 am it's perfect for training for an hour.
Will continue blogging about running as my training goes on, but in the meantime, it's time to enjoy the Austin Farmer's Market as a treat for my 4 mile run
