Softball & Running

Thursday and Friday are softball nites. I play doubleheaders at Snedigar Sportsplex. Then on Friday nite I play a single game with our church coed team. I didn't want to go two nites without running, so I decided to run after the games tonight. As you can see on google earth, right next to the softball fields is a new subdivision. The picture is old, most of the homes are built and the lake looks great.

I ran on tired legs and was doing 12:30 miles with walk breaks after about 1.5 miles. It wasn't pretty, but it was good practice to run tired. I do a lot of that when I run the half marathons.

For the baseball fans, if you look on the map, north of the softball fields you can see an old stadium. It was once the spring home of the California Angels and the Milwaukee Brewers. Now it's the home of weeds and pigeons.

The next run is Saturday morning with the Tumbleweed Running Club. I think we're doing 8 solid miles.

It's amazing just how quickly the landscape changes in this town. All of the GPS systems still show my street as being out in the middle of the desert.

Nice job with the run. Have fun tomorrow!

Good job on the dedication to get in your run. You need to run List into the ground on Saturday.

Here's two truths:

1. Lisa is not running with us this week. she's on a short vacation.

2. I don't think I'm capable of out running TriJava at this time.
