You Get What You Give

Today was a very good run.  I set my personal record and reached a goal of running an 8 minute mile (Although, admittedly it was on the high end)!! I also ran into a giant snake on the running path, a bit scary but not enough to deter me!

  2. Congrats on breaking into the 8 minute barrier. I’ve also got the new radicals on my mp3 player.

    I slacked off today and didn’t do my ride. My legs are still feeling wobbly from my 20 mile ride on Saturday.

    Keep up the great work.
