I forgot to mention my main excitement for the day. I registered for RRCA Coacing Certification in Little Rock, Arkansas on January 15th and 16th. I'm not sure my future is "coach", but I love to help others start running, and I'd love to have the right knowledge to back that up (besides just what I read in Runner's World). Anyone want to come with me? I hate going to things like this alone, but I'm seriously looking forward to it.
I also got in 7 good miles on the dreadmill today. I am certain that my treadmill is not calibrated properly. For some reason I can run much faster on the gym treadmill (over 1mph difference in my capability at home versus the gym). Maybe I actually ran 8. I really need to look into getting this 10-15 year old treadmill calibrated. Anyone ever had that done before???
Lastly, I wanted to point you to a new blog I've been reading... Runner Dude. His BLOG is full of useful info for runners... I'm really enjoying it. It's like having Runner's World at your daily fingertips. So go check it out!
