Picked up my number for Pat’s Run on Saturday!
So psyched! Been wanting to do this race for years! Im a huge fan of Pat Tillman the man.
Yes his story about giving up millions to serve is nice and all but when you learn about Pat Tillman THE MAN you become a fan of his and realize that act is just part of a bigger picture of who he was.
Make no mistake what he did was amazing. No doubt. But I guess what i’m trying to say he was amazing before that to.
Anyway today is the 10th anniversary of his death. Please have in your thoughts and prayers not just Pat but all our service members who have died defending our nation. Thank you.
This was a hard one yesterday.
I hadn’t run on the street in quite sometimes and I felt it with every step. Treadmill running just jack you up. Only good thing about yesterday’s struggle…Well two thing…First was I ran at my 10 minute pace so I wasn’t that bad. And the run was for #strongereveryday the Nike+ App challenge. Every mile that was ran yesterday with Nike Apps that had #strongereveryday in the notes they donated a dollar per mile. I did 3 miles for each o fthe bombing victims of last year’s Boston Marathon. and 264 was for all the wounded.
This weekend I do my first races of the year.
Hey if you like to donate to the Pat Tillman foundation. Here is a fundraising page you can hit. Anything you give is appreciated.
The right pace is the pace YOU feel comfortable at. Dont worry about your friends. Worse thing that can happen is you get frustrated and become down on yourself.
Run at the pace you feel comfortable at. As you progress in running you will find that your speed will slowly increase on it own. Then when you are ready you can do things to help you get faster like Fartleks and speed work. But right now just run at your pace.
Main thing is to finish.
