- Had to entertain myself at work while my computer loaded ANOTHER update. #AdultingSucks #bored #sketch #drawing#Run Streak Day 1608. ONLY 3 days until the 50 miler this Saturday. Trying to stay calm and relaxed. Took some time to chill and smells the flowers on my run this morning. Not much more I can do, other than not do something stupid. Wish me luck on that one. 😁#Run Streak Day 1607. The taper monster is on full attack. Spent all day reexamining the course for my 50 miler this weekend AND researching another 50 miler that I might do in October. I am in panic about my support crew being able to get to their designated area and the fact that it will be in the 90s that day. I only ran a mile today and don't know what to do with this extra energy. How do people live like this, all rested and not sore?#Run Streak Day 1606. It's Bling Bling Monday! Ran the LoCo challenge this weekend. 8k on Saturday and Half Marathon on Sunday. The coolest part is definitely the LoCo Challenge spinner medal. 6 more days until my 50 miler! 🤘🏼😄🤘🏼

Week Eight = The one where I go off the rails.
This week was my first week back into some serious training. Gym time and some decent miles each day really got my energy levels back up and I have my sites firmly focused on this weekend’s Marine Corps Historic Half. However, I do get sidetracked a bit and provide an unconvincing argument about why I should be the next Wolverine for future X-Men movies. It is an amazing display of how exercise can really get you hyped up in the morning, to an almost manic state. So please, listen as I lose my mind and have delusions of grandeur as I drive my way through traffic towards my big boy job where people have to put up with me in real time.
For those of you who are new, I do record these installments during my commute to work. So I apologize for all the background noise and distractions you will hear. Turn signals. Honking horns. My inability to pronounce words correctly. I leave most warts and all untouched.
As always, I want to give credit to the music in this podcast:
