1. Today I ran for the first time since my Half Marathon. 3.25 easy miles on the treadmill.
Felt pretty good, no pain in the legs, a little bit at the ball of my foot. I am thinking I may need different shoes. I don't live in a town of runners. There's no running store here, just stores like Dicks and Sport Authority where all they want is sell you a pair of shoes, the higher the price the better for them. I must find a store where they can really tell me what shoes would be good for me. That is my mission for the weekend.
2. My basketball team is driving me crazy. I got 9 boys aged 6-7. The truth is: we suck. I started coaching when I was 18 so long time ago and I can count on one hand the number of teams I had that sucked. I am not going to lie, I don't like it. The problem is that those little fellas don't care that they suck. Well maybe 2 of them do care, Will cuz he has my DNA and another one who is really a football player. The rest well they don't care. I need to lower my expectations and remember they need to have fun and they are only 6-7 yrs old.
3. I have decided to wait until I get the results of my scan before I pay for the Disney Half Marathon. If the tumor has grown I will need to take care of it. I will know Tuesday. If I cannot do that one, I still have plan B, the Rock n Roll LA Half Marathon. I want to see if I find one in May, that would give me enough time to train between now and then but May can be really hot here (I HATE the heat).
And I am still not over Shirtless Guy/Magnum PI look-a-like ruining some of MY race pictures!!
