Brooke’s summer vacation is over. Back to school, back to school.
Spotted on side of bar in rural south Arkansas.
Thursday two miler.
There’s a moment in starting a new running regimen where you feel the leg strength improvement in the form of a fresh-legged run. Today was that day. I took the last two days off and rested. It paid off to the tune of one of my most enjoyable runs in recent memory. The unseasonal 70 degree weather helped immensely.
A great week so far, and the forecast for the weekend looks just as nice.
Happy 27th birthday to Brooke Hanna.

I won’t embarrass you by writing an online love letter.
Party time. Beer, beer, beer.
Missed my goal by five seconds but had a wonderful (sweaty) night.
Brooke beat me.
Team black about to win this 5K.
The 5K is tonight. The last time I did this particular 5K was in 2009 and I did it with no shirt. I’ll spare my fellow runners this time around and go fully clothed.
I’m gunning for 35 minutes tonight. A nice pace for me at my current weight.
1:30 am visit to overnight vet. Not a super emergency, just a precaution. He’s a trooper.
The last time I ran two miles was six months and 20 pounds ago. The 5K we’re signed up for is four days away, and I’m slowly building up to it.
Mile 1: 11:30
Mile 2: 12:01
