#Janathon Day 3! A Nice run/walk with the boy.

Ahh… Day 3.  My legs were a we bit tired from the previous day’s runs, so today was a slow recovery run.  My son hadn’t run with me since the bridge-run, so I decided he needed to stretch his legs on this rainy day.  I let him know ahead of time, we could walk as he saw fit or needed, since he was just recently a member of the flu epidemic going around the country.   He (grudgingly) agreed, and off we went!  I apologize, there was supposed to be a picture of the two of us in our running gear here, but we both forgot about it.

The plan was our old two-mile loop that we have done so many times!

We pulled a 12:47 mile for the first one, which I think was pretty good for the boy, since he had run since Veterans Day!

We walked most of mile 2, and back to home. Some great conversations (as usual.)   I did gain the opportunity to teach him a very valuable skill.  See, his head was all stuffed up, and he had a runny nose.  I explained one could stick their head forward, block one nostril and blow really hard out of the other one to clear everything out!   Yes, today my son learned the valuable runner skill of the “Snot-Rocket!”

wpid-wp-1420316999358.pngThe other humorous aspect of today, involved a nice gentleman we ran into along the way.  I have a tendency to be a fairly up-beat guy, and always look for the bright side of life!  This gentleman asked me how we were doing, and I told him I was doing great – it wasn’t snowing!   He asked if I was from up north, and after a series of questions, and to make a long-story short – he was also an upstate NY’er!  He knew right where Binghamton NY was as he was from FARTHER north – Oswego NY!   Amazing the number of NYers I run into down here.

Great day to be outside, and the nice easy run/stroll was just what the doctor ordered today!


I run, because I am a runner. Having realized that I have always "been a runner" - even when I went years with out running, I am learning how it has integrated itself in all aspects of my life. When I started running in highschool, my perspective on life changed. Funny that I didn't realize how much it had affected it until just recently.
