Not so Hot

I could feel the chill in the air this morning. It was in the low 70's and felt great. My plan was to get 5 miles in and enjoy the morning weather. I did the neighborhood route and then cut over to Desert Breeze lake. 5.02 miles in 1:01:49 for a pace of 12.18 per mile. I felt great and I ran about 90% of the time. Running in the daylight is nice too. For the past 4 months, most of my running has been after dark.

Last night I practice the kata one with my son followed by 30 minutes spinning on our stationary bike. Amy said I needed to give my legs a break. That was my break. Today is the 70th consecutive day of exercise.

Komen Race for the Cure: Anyone here in Phoenix planning to do this race on October 14th can sign up with the ASU Gold team and get some cool extras. Here's the deal. If you sign up online and with the ASU Gold team you get an extra tee. It is a gold tee with ASU on it just for this race. I haven't seen it, but we are all going to wear it on race day so that we stick out a bit. That's in addition to the race tee. Plus, you can carpool down to the race with us from the east valley. This is being done thru my kid's venture crew. We are all going to meet at our church race morning, get our bib #'s, shirts and carpool down. So, if you want to do this you need to sign up online and let me know. You must pick up your stuff race morning at the church. You can elect to drive down by yourself, but it's gonna be crowded. To do this, you need to sign up today or tomorrow. I don't know why.

The Biggest Loser Fantasy League: Tonight is the second show. Everyone has picked their first three (except J-wim?). Good luck, everyone.

Yes, I am in for Race for the Cure! When I get signed up, I'll let you know. Cool deal!

Pat - I am all signed up. I almost registered last week on my own...glad I waited so I could team up!

Also...cross-posted on my blog and Lisa's regarding this weekend:

Lisa and Pat - I am hesitantly.....nervously.....anxiously agreeing to try a long run with you both on Saturday.....only catch is that it would have to be SUPER early. My son has a football game that I would need to get home and get ready for (we look like we're on a week's vacation when we leave for a single football game, LOL!). So how early are you guys willing to venture out......and Lisa - did you have a route in mind?

You can email me....

Bill and Lezlye for me, sorry to be pokey!

Nice job with the run. It was definitely nice to walk outside this morning to cooler temps. I'm planning on a morning run tomorrow to enjoy the cool air.

Pokey said...

HEY!!!! J-WIM....nothing wrong with being *POKEY*!!!!! :P Sheesh....LOL!

Pat - I got signed up with ASU Gold...always willing to do something in honor of my alma mater!

I'm def up for carpooling - the traffic is a ZOO. We'll talk more after it gets closer.

Just a warning: I am coming back from Rocky Point the day before and still may be under the influence of sand, sun and margaritas! :)
