This is what I am training for

Not really, but if I was 20 again I might think about it.  I cant imagine how much stress you could get rid of after a day of soccer/football/MMA fighting.  If you could go back in time to  younger age with the knowledge and experience you have now, what wold you do differently?  I know I have made so many mistakes personally, professionally, and otherwise that I would love to change.  But if I did, what would the end result be now? Would I have my awesome wife and kids?  Probably not. Would I have the peace of mind and semi-contentness that I currently have?  Who knows.  I guess you could debate these things all day long and never get anywhere.  Oh the video link…here it is.

What else do I have to discuss today?  It is my second furlough day so while I get to kick it at home and get caught up on my PS3 gameplay on the new 55 inch LED/LCD tv, I don’t get paid.  I would rather be getting paid while playing video games.

I have had a few new good beers recently.  Drum roll please…

On the running front, I have been doing a lot of though regarding going to run the Denver marathon.  At this point I don’t think that the marathon is in my grasp, I just have not been able to get into the training like I should.  I know that I could go there and finish the race, but one thing I know is that you must respect the marathon and its challenge or it will bite you in the ass.  Never underestimate the marathon.  I know there are people out there who are able to run one a month, or even one a day as they cross the Country but I am not one of those freaks of nature. A back up might be the Grand Canyon marathon or half with eyes on the Sedona marathon.

Part of the resin I have not been able to hit my training is because of my SI joint flaring up once the miles started to increase along with an increase in intensity.  Due to this I was not able to do all of the races I told Jamba Juice I would do,however I have been going out and talking to people in various settings which I think would benefit the brand more than if I just ran a few races said hello and went home.  I notified the JJ people and their response was my contract calls for races to be run and I need to do what I can to achieve the # of specified races.  I get that, but they made no mention of the other efforts I have made to get the word out about their products and distribution of the coupons.  I feel like they need to step back and take a look at the bigger picture, but they wont.  In the long run that is their loss.  I will still hit a few small local races and get the info out, but I doubt it will be with the vigor I would have had.

I still love the Sof Sole socks they hooked me up with along with the insoles, quality products.  Check them out if you are in the market for some great multi-sport socks or insoles.
