Every morning in Africa, an antelope wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion, or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest antelope, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or an antelope -- when the sun comes up, you'd better be running. -African proverb

AZ Rock n Roll Review

Wow -- it's February already!  A few weeks ago I ran the AZ Rock n Roll half marathon in Tempe.  I've run this race about 9-10 times, but this was the first time on the new, non-shuttle course It was awesome Perfect weather, friendly faces, and very easy access to the start and finish.  I also ran a decent race -- not a PR, but a solid race.  I ran a 1:38 and felt good the whole time That was the best part -- nothing hurt! It felt effortless. 

Well, since the spring semester has started, there is not much racing on my calendar.  It's just too hard to get away during the semester I'll keep building my base and try to stay injury-free.  Hopefully I'll have more time this summer to commit to some real training.  Until then, I'm just running for fun!
