November Already?

Posted Nov 09 2009 10:02pm

Well, here it is.  November already.  AND I am so slow to catch up this blog.  I wonder why that is.

It was a fantastic October.  I am finally able to get out and run again.  The Plantar Fasciitis (of my right ankle) set me back for quite a bit of time.  But, it is better and better.  Running is no longer painful.

These are my October statistics:

October Exercise Activities 11092009

I am running the Las Vegas Rock n Roll Half-Marathon (Inaugral).

I am using a combination of schedules to get to where I need to be.  It is an intermediate Schedule with the Galloway Method.  I run for 6 1/2 to 7 minutes then I walk for a minute to a minute and a half.  I find it much more refreshing then the way I used to run.  I’m putting in about 25 miles per week.  I am also up to an eleven mile long run.

I know that I can run the Half and succeed at it now.  Next week? 12 miles.  Week after another 12.  Week after that – 10 to 11.  Week after that?  Las Vegas!

I am not a fast runner.  I can do the job, but I can’t seem to do it fast.  I was thinking about having more fun while getting the job done.  One way I can do that for me (and maybe motivate others) is for me to join the ranks of the Running Elvi!


I’ve thought about it for a while. As I thought about committing for this, I started to get some supplies.  A costume, an Elvis wig, Sunglasses…  I was slowly getting what I needed.  I needed to know if I could run as Elvis.  The timing was right for this, though.  I had a 10 mile long run scheduled for Halloween day.

I know that I can wear the costume for the half-marathon now.  I may hone the costume and the appertenances prior to the race.

Veteran’s Day

I am a veteran of the US Army.  I served in the Vietnam Era between 197 and 74.  I beleive in the military and the way these people maintain our freedoms and defend our rights!

Honoring my fellows, I’d like to present, “Ragged old Flag.”

Now For Some FUN!

Did you know that I do a comedy segment for a podcast every week? It is based on puns (I’m somewhat known for my puns…) and topical, weird news.

I have a couple for you if you are interested!
