Another 3.2 run on the track with the same orthotic and shoe combo as yesterday. I think I have a good combo that will serve me well. I'll take a rest day tomorrow and then mull over what my plan will be for the rest of December before prepping for the half in March. I can't wait to run outside again. I wanted a very controlled environment over the last few days but it sure will be nice to get out there again.
As a retired Marine aviator, running has been a part of my life for... well, pretty much my whole life. In the Corps, I ran because I had to stay in shape as part of the job. Now, I run because I want to. I signed up for my first half marathon just before I got out of the service as a way to make sure that I kept pt'ing, even though I no longer "had" to. But I soon discovered that I really enjoyed distance running. I started this blog on a whim to see if it would be fun to keep a running (sorry) dialog on the training and events I participate in, as well as share other interests.
