I didn’t get my Friday run in because I filled in at my dad’s store for five hours after golfing nine holes.
I went for a 1.5-mile run around the neighborhood with my dog this afternoon — short and sweet. He (like just about every other dog) loves to get outside and run around. The temperature was nice and cool.
There’s a soccer game on Sunday, so that will add a lot more running to my weekend.
Something I’ll have to do before the marathon is get a pair of running shorts, something with pockets but not super short. I don’t care how nice they are to run in, I’m not wearing tiny shorts. Two things that don’t agree with me are 1.) small shorts and 2.) shirts without sleeves. In previous years I wore a pair of soccer shorts. This time I’m looking for something that will make it easy for me to carry a chocolate chip Clif Bar. Those are delicious.
