I have a lot of STUFF… with another birthday looming I don’t really want much more stuff. I want experiences, I want to run Lake2Ocean, I want to take a day trip to Savannah with my wife. I wanna go photograph Coheed and Cambria again. Stuff doesn’t have the appeal it once did. Don’t get me wrong there are things I will need to aid me on the adventures I want to take but that isn’t the same as buying yet another action figure I’ll never open.
So I have only been running for 3 years and my furthest race has been a half marathon. That being said my determination is larger than my brain..
I have a half in November
Then a 50K in December
I also got invited to attempt a 100k in January
I’m going to do them all,will I succeed I’m not sure. What I am sure of is that I will get out there and bust my ass if I have to tap out I will. Yeah I’m writing this on the one year anniversary of getting a heart stent. So yeah never let anyone tell you not to try something
worst case scenario, you fail, learn from it and try again.
So I have been waiting weeks to get my hands on these new Hoka trail shoes. I took em out for a quick trail run this morning. I have to say they are some of the most comfortable Hoka’s I’ve ever worn. The 3mm drop is perfect for me, the shoe is responsive and cushioned at the same time. The lugs aren’t huge but they are more than adequate. The shoe is pretty light and feels fast on your feet. It does seem to soak up every bit of water it touches… But hey that’s life in Florida. All in all a solid shoe I currently would give it an 8 out of 10.
Trail running is my love. It brings challenges and focus that are very different from road running. I did a swampstomp Sunday. Here is a pick of me running through “interesting” conditions.
I will be quitting my job as a trainer. The company I worked for (Around the clock fitness) has ripped me off of literally thousands of dollars. My complaints have fallen on deaf ears. I hate to leave my clients, they work so hard towards their goals but I cannot work at a place that puts zero focus on honesty. I learned a lot there in a small time about what I don;t want to be like and how not to treat people. and with that said I’m out.
Passed the test officially.
I take my personal trainer certification test. I have studied I have worked in the field. I know what I need to accomplish yet I still have doubt even after acing multiple practice exams. This isn’t something new to me self doubt is a constant…wish me luck.
