Day 1 Training for Tulsa

And so training begins again, only this time I have a decent amount of time to get in shape for the Tulsa Half taking place in November, my 7th state.

Or wait… maybe I’m supposed to be getting ready for the Hamster Endurance Run in August… oh well… moving on…

I’m not sure I mentioned it before, but because of that crazy stint I pulled off with the SLC Half, RNR Seattle Half, and just recently Missoula (3 half-marathons in 90 days), I managed to qualify for Half Fanatics.  I am now Half Fanatic #15164!  For my friends across the pond and elsewhere that aren’t familiar with it, it’s a national running club here in the States which affords certain race “perks.”  For example, in Tulsa, we will have access to the VIP tent.  And yes, James qualified for Marathon Maniacs as well.  We both have joined the Asylums!


Anyway, as I was saying, today was the first day of training for Tulsa… or Hamster… whatever. My feet are feeling much better (thanks Rob!), almost completely healed and normal again. Regardless, I kind of had a lazy run.  Okay, not kind of, more like really really.  But it’s all good.  I haven’t been able to train properly since the PF started, so it was good to get out and just get ‘er done.


I opted to go ’round and ’round at the soccer fields.  It was flat.  And I was feeling lazy.  And could the sky get any more beautiful?


So I completed 5 lazy miles going ’round and ’round.  It got a bit warm with no shade, but I’m thinking I shouldn’t really complain about that as, last I heard, the rest of the country is melting.


And hey!  I spotted the bird… little Robin Redbreast!


But if Mr. Redbreast doesn’t get it done for you, then have a duck:


Lastly, Sheba would like to say hi, because she’s like that:


Wishing you a blessed week!

      Hahaha, thanks Lynne! The Fanatics is really a big social thing, so it’s all just great fun! Although I totally expect that red carpet to be laid out, hehe!! (kidding!) 😀 Lots of hugs and cuddles given to the cat-child for you. 🙂

      Hahaha! SHE seems to think she’s old enough!! 😀 Whenever I open my door, she is right there on my lap saying hi, it’s too funny. And when I bring groceries home, she likes getting in and foraging around the bags before I carry them in to see if there’s anything good. And yes, thank you, it was a nice comfortable run! 😀

      Kansas was actually supposed to be this year, but we’ve put it off because I wanted SLC instead. It’ll be possibly in the next two years or so, in Olathe… because I just have to have that Wizard of Oz bling!! 😀
