I’m not crying

You’re crying.

I’m watching the pensive scene from Deathly Hallows 2.


I’m not crying. You’re crying.

Pre Run Post

Checked the weather – no rain in the forecast. I’ve had a cup of coffee, so I am awake. I’ve read my horoscopes and they have indicated no danger so it’s safe to step outside. Yup, going for a run. You all behave while I’m out there pounding the pavement and dirt.

After the run I am slated to make breakfast for Tine. Yes, yes. I know. I’m spoiling her. It’s the only way I can ensure that she spoils me in return. It’s mutual spoilage.

Okay, that didn’t sound right. But trust me, our relationship works.

Change of Season, Change of Scenery

I changed up my Blog’s theme and color. More fall-like. Hope it is easy on your eyes.

Just Your Average Run

Followed, of course, by a walk. To the stats!

Running, Running, Runn….SNOW!!!!!!

Yup. That’s right. It was a fine, mist of a snow fall this morning as I ran. Here are the stats, and map.

Best Laid Plans

My alarm went off at 4:30 AM because I had the intention of going for a run this morning. However, my body made it clear that wasn’t going to happen. And the worse part of this whole situation is that it’s raining! I love running in the rain. Anyway, now the plan is to run after I get home. I’ve got my fingers crossed that it’ll still be raining.

Today’s Run, Plus a New Phone!

My phone messed up again today. I was about 4 tenths of a mile from home when it put Runtasic on pause. You can see the gap on the map. I actually ran all the way back to the house. Anyway, my phone has been acting up a lot. The screen locks up for minutes at a time, drops Blue Tooth connection on a regular basis, and generally runs like crap. So I went to T-Mobile and got myself a new phone. Turns out all those runs in the rain, not to mention my perfuse sweating, cause water damage to my old phone. So I decided on the iPhone Xs, which is water resistant. 


A couple of new records today: The fastest 10 K (1:12:50)and the most calories burned (1603). I didn’t try to establish any new records. I didn’t even pay attention to the pace. I just chose a route and ran comfortably. My heart rate did hit 210, but that was at the steepest part of the trail at the 5.88-mile mark. And it was just a quick spike, nothing extensive.

The Day After

I want to thank everyone for the Happy Birthday wishes I received. It was nice. Tina took me to the Buffalo House, and we had Broasted Chicken which was terrific. We managed to get a table despite it being full, and there being a party of 22 and a party of 6 waiting when we got there.
