I drove up to Jeremy Ranch later than usual cuz of watching the NY marathon this morning. Replaying Shalane Flanagan's run through Central Park kept me motivated the whole way. I don't think anything makes us happier than watching a person achieve a lifetime goal.
Sad about the church shooting in Texas. I believe we have a mass shooting or killing in this country almost every week and, if I'm not mistaken, we are the only country where that is the case. I don't see any solution in the short term. We are who we are.
So I ran the JRR road in some really iffy weather. Lots of mud, rain, wind, a little bit of snow and a little bit of sunshine. I needed to be dressed differently every mile. Decent training lately makes me think I need to have some sort of goal. I'm thinking I might got to Bend in February and run the USATF cross country championships. The masters race is an 8k on a really challenging course. I might be fairly competative in the 50-54 AG.
Just thinking. The real goal these days is to stay healthy and fit.
