Final BayshoreThoughts.....

Well friends, it's been almost a week since the Bayshore and some Star Wars-esque thoughts.

Saturday after the race, while sitting around the hotel room, with many witnesses, words that came out of my mouth.

"i'm going to try for Boston"....

Wha...what....wait a moment. What words were uttered?

So in front of Steve, Annette, Animal and Fun Guv....those words popped outta my mouth.

Well, why not??? It's really my last chance before getting another 5 minutes after hitting the 40 milestone.

Of course, Sunday night the History channel had an awesome Star Wars special, which tied historical mythology to the Star Wars movies. Great stuff and yes, we did record it for Animal. I was of course reminded.....

There is no try...you either do or do not.

Maybe not the exact quote but close enough. So, i am going to BQ. i have a start of a tough training plan in the sidebar, any thoughts from anybody????

Speaking of sidebar.....

With the Bayshore over, i have moved the Bayshore links to the running blogger, or blogging runner area.

i also have added a link, a blog written by an Attorney with a client, maybe more, living not-so-comfortably in Cuba...anyway, it's a powerful site, and with Gitmos attrocities with regards to basic humanity, i'm highly recommending taking a glance at.... fer'instance a story about a 20 yr Canadian who was brought there 5 yrs ago, yep, since he was 15.

Bayshore stuff...

final thought...as great as i feel after the Bayshore. There was one moment i wish i could have redone. While standing with Nitmos prior to the race.... A woman walked by and i noticed Miranda on her bib. Now, this may not have been the same Miranda i have been reading about, but it could have been...

Bummer, of a missed opportunity eh???

i need to avoid those.

Anyway, let's move on the next Big Run and get back to my meaningless babble.

Thanks for reading

Most excellent. Someone I know must try to qualify for Boston, as it most definitely won't be me. I'd have to turn into Lindsey Wagner.

I think you are ready for a Pfitz plan...

Marathon training plan advice is like....opinions. Everyone has one.

Best to see what works for you....how do you feel each week...are you experiencing incremental gains over a couple week period, etc.

What works for others may not work for you. I'll email you my process just for informational purposes.

Oh crap! I was kind of regretting not making plans to try and meet up with you guys for few minutes before or after the race. It may very well have been me. I was wearing blue and green Nike shorts and a lighter blue sleeveless top. Next time!

Funny on how all your geek friends can quote Star Wars...or the Simpsons. "Ah, alcohol. The cause and the solution to all of life's little problems." -H. Simpson
