Nobody cares if you're not a good dancer. Just get up and dance. The same holds true for racing. Whether first or last, we all cross that same finish line. Just get out there and run.

Marathon Training Week 15's Long Run and Giveaway Winner

Let's break down today's run in bullet point form. Why, you ask, to you I say why the heck not. 

  • I had a TON of fun during this run today! I sang a little, had a few dancey moments, you know my usual.
  • I had a ton of cyclists and people in golf carts scare the begabbers (to use B's term) out of me.
  • Apparently, I suck at taking pictures of myself while running. See below for evidence.

  •  I saw some thoroughly amusing graffitti. Peachtree City is about as gangsta as June Cleaver.

  • The weather was awesome because it was hot but it didn't feel like I was in some sort of torture sauna. 
  • I was on my own again, but I was actually ok with that. I managed to push myself when I needed a little push, and keep it going.
  • I didn't take my normal route exactly. I started at a completely different spot and did the first six of the run, on part of the paths I don't normally run, I did the three mile route I knew twice, and then crossed the road to the marked 6 mile loop around the lake. It kept the run interesting and fun.
Now, for the announcement, the winner of my very first giveaway. I used to pick the winner.

The winner is #9, none other than Fruit Fly herself. Shoot me an e-mail at runchunky [at] gmail [dot] com.

Stay tuned, I have a few other giveaways coming up. I also have a guest blogger tomorrow, so there's lots of fun stuff coming up.

Ha! LMAO at PTC "Grafitti!" WOO WOO? Really? That is too funny. :) Very nice long run! Im looking forward to working up to some longer miles on my plan. I always run by myself so I have the self motivating thing down pretty well. Looks like you are well on your way to kicking that full's butt!

lol PTC grafitti! My sister lives in PTC and you are right it is as about as gangsta as June Cleaver. I know there are just random gangs of kids on golf carts terrorizing the trails! lol
