Running Group

Yesterday, I went to a get together at one our group member house, to honor our group leader, also one of the fastest guys in the area. I had a nice time it was good to see people that I haven't seen in a while. This is my Wednesday night track work out group that I have not been to since August. So I was happy to have been invited.

The house was filled with some of CT's top runners, I probably was the slowest runner there but it was ok and I've come to accept it. They are a great group of people and I admire and respect them.

A card was passed around. My comment to the group leader "I keep going because you once told me no matter what never give up'' I hope he remembered saying that to me about 3 years ago at one of our XC runs.

Elliott had a all day wrestling tournament on Saturday, and surprisingly he did very well he won 3 matches and then was tied for first in his division. Overall he got the silver medal in his division.

My runs the last two days went well. I felt Saturday was one of the best days weather wise to run . I only wished I had gotten my lazy butt out the door sooner.

Sunday was equally nice. My run went well and I felt strong. I don't want to speak too soon. But I've pick up my training pace a little. Of course it still is not where I would like it to be, but I'm happy with what I'm seeing and feeling lately.

Sounds like a fun party! Congrats to Elliott. I used to score wrestling when I taught. It's a tough sport and you have to admire those guys for getting out there and putting it all on the mat. Happy holidays!!
