Turning the leaf before it falls off the tree :)

Ok, after a great time of conversation with my Pastor-Mentor-Friend last night and a time of reflection on my last four yeas of life Ihave come to the (re) conclusion that I am not superman.

Although I find my self fit and relatively trim 190 and 5″11 and at 53 years old I can still keep up with most half my age.

I find myself fatigued and tired most nights, I don’t sleep worth a bean (food reference ) and over the last year it is showing up in that “I always look hungover” kind of look . As I was poking around the web I stumbled on this POST and it initially struck me as a silly kind of read, and a provocative title to be sure.  Well another Pastor friend posted THIS link and it just added fuel to my fire.

Just three years ago I was able to tell Jann on a Saturday morning that I was going for a run and I would be back in a bit, it alway took four hours, I would be like Forrest Gump and run and run….  I would take off on Miliken and Foothill and go two hours in any direction knowing if I went out two hours…. I would have to return in two hours, kind of a runners mind game but it worked.

Over the years I racked up the following stats

  • Miles walked 3708
  • Miles Run 6080
  • Total Miles 9788
  • Stairs Climbed 70,202 ( apx 35 miles)
  • Training Summary: Total Distance:9826.09 mi.
  • FAST FACTS about EARTH: * circumference: 24,901.5 miles * diameter: Nearly 8,000 miles I am over 1/3 of the way around 🙂

Well in thinking about where I am today and where I was just three years ago, I have decided to jump back in the running obsession. One of the good things over these last few years is, I have walked 2 miles a day and not missed even one day due to illness or laziness 🙂 I am forced to walk because my train lets me off  a mile from work and I refuse all offers of rides from co-workers, ( that is another story ) anyway,  I have a choice to make, drugs 🙂 or running, I will give running a try again and see where I am this time next year.

I know you are wondering why I posted this and what does it matter to you……  🙂 it keeps me from having to bomb and say six months from now…. no….I just got lazy and could not keep it up
