We ran hard and fast We where on trail, long and hot It was only six miles!?!?????!?! Advertisements Continue reading A Runner’s Runs Run for No Runner.
Let me tell you a few of my favorite things about trail running. The trees, the lightning bugs, the supprise ferral dogs, hogs and river otters. The feeling I did something hard and unnecessary. The soladaraty. But mostly…….mostly…….I enjoy the fact that I never run into drunk woman in their 20’s. Continue reading “When the Dog Bites, When the Bee Stings, When I’m Feeling Sad……”
I knew I didn’t have to work this morning. Barely drank so much as a beer last night. Got my family off to work and summer camp, and then went back to bed. I should have gone for a run. I did… at almost 10am, while 84 degrees out. Not proud of my 2,2 miles in 24 minutes… but it about killed me. Time to … Continue reading HEAT Training for Mountain Camel
This Mountain Camel eat more spider webs on today’s AM run then Doctor Octopus. Wish I was Doc Octopus, I could have used his extra arms to move my pudggy ass a bit faster. Instead my very human legs carried me in at a sluggish 36:45, on the standard 5k training loop. If I had super powers they would be to spit over great distances, … Continue reading Here’s Web in Your Eye.
If he drank half the slobber he left in the truck after the run, he wouldn’t be thirsty. Continue reading Musings of Trail Running With Dogs #134
Up at 450am….ok, 5:15, on the trails by 6, back in the truck 3 miles and 34:15 minutes later, showered and into work by 8. The rest of the day went just like that. Project. Deadline. Project. Deadline. Deadline. Project. Project. Deadline. Beer. Not that I’m complaining, this camel has a good life, just sayn’ my legs hurt.

I’m not as dark about it as the headline reads. But I did feel pretty sluggish.. but the next few runs are all just cleaning up the cob webs. I like running in my city. I should do it more. 3.13 miles, 35:24. That’s the baseline. Here’s to many more. And I totally drank a beer, and glass of water before the run. ⛰🐫 Continue reading Evening 5k. A damn fat, slow 5k.
5k, in the low 90’s…..that’s already getting too damn hot. Not to mention, it was a disgraceful time. 39:30. And don’t forget that fat leg chafe, enuff to make this camel spit. Oh ya, there was a fair amount of stairs involved, too. So, to recap; Hot, disgracefully slow 5k, with stairs and fat leg chafe. Ugh. I need water. Continue reading Damn, it’s hot.
The pants don’t fit anymore and the “Truffle Shuffle” happens when we scuttle. SO, it’s time to get back to the woods, on the trails, back to whats good. And no better time to start then the beginning of summer in North Texas. All sorts of things to look forward too, Poison Ivy, Skeeders, Chafe, Dehydration and that other thing….what was it….oh ya….The oppressive heat. … Continue reading After an Experiment in Fat and Lazy, It’s time to return to what’s good.
