I was doing my little lunch time run here at work today and my mind was wandering... O.K., that is what it pretty much does all the time. You know it when you see me. You look into my eyes and I am just staring like a deer into headlights. Yup, not a lot going on up there most of the time. But a few thoughts came into mind.
One, it is time to start ramping it up. No not a ramp to get up into bed. Ya, I am short but not that short. I'm talking running here. I keep telling myself that my measly 50 miles a week is o.k. But really for me I need high milage for 100's. No, many do just fine and actually really well on much lower. So, by the first week in February I will shoot for close to 100 miles a week.
What kind of milage are you shooting for the first week in February?
It was a little cooler for my run at work today. No, not International Falls, Minnesota cold, no way. But it was brisk. Beautiful day and I could see Mt. Hood. Pretty cool. But I was thinking about those pictures I saw of the guys doing the Western Washington Fat Ass NOT WEARING HATS. Dang, my little bald shaved head can tell you when it hits 40 degrees. I guess they grow them tough up in Washington.
Second I was thinking about what interesting things that I have seen on the trail. Really nothing that exciting. I mean I know of two runners that have seen NAKED WOMEN out there. Yup, they were hiking, not just skinny dipping in a high country lake or anything. And if I remember right one of them was on Wildwood!
What interesting thing have you seen on the trail?

Another thought passed quickly through the grey matter... I was wondering what my favorite food was. Why did this thought come to mind you say? Well, it was lunch time and I thought I really have to start eating better again. Mine... I guess I should say Pizza. Sorry, that is a boring answer. But the peculiar thing about that answer is I HATE CHEESE!!! Always have. Can't stand it on a sandwich. Don't even think about putting on a hamburger for me. And you can't make me eat that hot spinach dip with cheese and garlic. Ain't happening. The smell of cheese just nauseates me. Aghhhhhh.
What is your favorite food?
And lastly, will I finsh DFL again this year at MLK fat ass 50kish? Probably. I don't give a crap. Afterall, I just hope all the CHEESY lasagna is GONE by the time drag my sorry ass over to L.B.'s house. I don't mind pretzels after all, it goes well with a Guinness.

Have fun this MLK weekend...
