I feel like I have made a good start! As of yesterday afternoon I have run about 16 km for $265 pledged. I am more than 6% done. This endeavour is not going to be a problem at all. In fact, I am so recklessly overconfident that I am awarding myself a break until Sunday. Also, my legs hurt. Apparently running for the bus occasionally did not constitute training for my training.
I have added an accounting page to make it easier to figure out whose kilometres I am working on. I am presently nearly halfway through those imposed on me by Ni4ky. I notice his brother James B is also sending me off to pound the pavement. His strategic choice of 21 km made me smile. I may even make it a 21.1 km run to satisfy the spirit of his pledge. I think by the time I am that far down the list I might be able to do it all in one shot. We’ll see.
Yesterday Icebreaker opened a new store in Kitsilano. They had a 50% off sale where they served beer. I had “more than one.” I bought some new undies and then went for a run. Merino undies and beer: I don’t think the world knows a more powerful placebo. Last time I had new merino undies I went swimming in them down at wreck beach.
I wonder if Arwen’s Apparel might start a mens-line with their bamboo or ChitoSanté fabric? That would make for some gnarly running pants!
I think you should have new shoes soon…. May I have the pleasure of sponsering you for two new shoes?
I’m sure that the undies are very comfy for you, but I’m allergic to wool and so wool undies sounds awful XD
