First Post

I figured I might as well get a blog going,,at least I will have something to look back on and laugh about someday. I am going to head out to Smithville in the morning to get in 3 or 4 hours on the trails, hopefully at least 1 hr before sunrise. I am planning on running the Kettle Moraine 1oo June 1st in Wisconsin. I need to do a lot of work on my night running before then. I am getting back into the swing of things ater pacing Rick for 40 miles at Rocky Racoon 100 Feb 3rd then Psycho on Feb 10th. I was kind of dissapointed in my Psycho results, I was 30 minutes quicker than last year but I quit on the last lap. I was cramping sooo bad and I just didn't have anything left to push faster. The next race I am going to give it more at the end and move up a few spots those last few miles. Just putting in the miles, 50 so far this week, hopefully about 30 more this weekend. It's supposed to rain a bunch so it'll be nice and muddy!! I am still trying to decide what race to do next,.,.either brew2brew or Rockin K.....if Rockin K wasn't easter weekend It would be an easy choice. Maybe both? I printed out last years mileage chart to help layout my work for this 100. Hopefully I can get in more miles w/ harder effort. The pic I posted is from Labor Day weekend 05. I found an old waterproof disposable camera and got it developed last week. I cannot believe how freakin gross I looked. Why didn't someone tell me I was such a lard ass?? It is amazing how much different you can look in a picture as opposed to how you see yourself. I can remember how it felt waking up every day and feeling like crap dragging my fatt arse outta bed. This picture has really motivated me again. I have a copy of it on my desk at work now. Now I just have cut back on the weights a little and try to get a little leaner. I will never be small, I am just not built that way, plus I obviously love to eat !!

Smokers need to have their own elevator. I would rather ride in an elevator with someone who has sharted.

I'm not sure that I like SHarts better than cigarette smoke though.
