Know what you are going through Bob. It can be addiciting. I used to be on the track team at my school when I was a lot younger. It can actually be wuite addiciting at times. Good luck .

It is very addicting, Pete! Bob has developed quite the fascination for all things running!

Taking a break, Bob

Bob had a nice run today, about 4.5 miles, but he spent the whole time talking his legs out of the mutiny they were trying to commit. You know the one where they want to stop, but Bob wants to go, and the legs feel like they're winning, even though Bob has been told it's all in his head? Yep, that kind of run. Bob heard a great quote recently that he mulled over while chilling out in some fancy new shoes at the running store:

Your legs are not giving out.
Your head is giving up.
Keep going.

Bob loves this quote, and wants it as a tattoo, or a shirt, since it's kinda long to be a tattoo on his cute little body...

Great to see Bob back in action but he has earned a well deserved rest.

Bob thanks you all so very much! Pete, Bob is more worried about their toes than the rest of their feet

Sad Bob

We'll Bob's awesome race plan today crashed and burned. He set his alarm, got up early, got ready, got out the door, got to the bank early and had to wait half an hour for them to open before he headed to his costume race, and then... Poor Bob's car wouldn't re-start. Apparently his battery was going dead ;( A lovely bystander pushed him out of the drive thru lane, (Bob owes her a lot!!!) A rescue attempt from Bob's family ensued, then a disappointing trip home with no super awesome costume themed free run race # for Bob's collection. ;(((((

So, by then it was 81 degrees and 70% humidity, so naturally Bob went out and did his usual Saturday morning run, 4.25 miles or something like that... Went out strong because Bob was mad, finished weak (Bib blames the humidity) but a run is a run and Bob felt pretty good!

All in all Bob guesses the universe was telling him he really didn't want to run that race this morning! He's a firm believer in everything happens for a reason, so whatever it is he's sure it was worth him not making it there....

Wall-hanging Bob!

Bob came home from a personal best run of 4.78 miles in 1 hour and 55 seconds to find that his wonderful girlfriend, Nell, had hung Bob's race number from his first ever 5K! Bob kicked off his sneakers, grabbed a big glass of water and looked up and Nell was there putting the final touches on his new artwork, right there by the front door when he comes in so he can see it and be proud! Bob was so happy that Nell would do this for him~

10/26/13 ~ Rack Bob

Bob has decided that running is very hard work, and he figured he'd test out this super fancy device called a foam roller! It seems to be a great ergonomic fit for him and reminds him a little of being "racked" in the middle ages.. Bob got out a snack and pondered how long he could lay with his head upside down until the blood all rushed up there..

10/27/13 ~ 5K Bob

Bob was very proud to be part of his second 5K today! He beat his personal best time by 3 minutes and 4 seconds!!! Bob is thrilled that he could do this having just run his first 5K just 3 weeks previously... He is wondering if he takes a minute off his time each week how fast he'll be by the end of the year! Bob thinks, however, that this is a lofty goal since this race nearly killed him!

10/27/13 ~ Hurt Bob

WARNING GRAPHIC IMAGE









Bob has decided that racing is inherently dangerous and that you should be careful of little child-size people that you think you can pass but in actuality they cause you to slip and fall... well, the soft ground does, not so much the little people... Bob thinks it may be wiser next time to go around on a proper path instead of the side of the trail... Bob learned his lesson and plans on remaining upright for the remainder of his running career. He has decided that road rash really REALLY hurts!

10/28/13 ~ Recovery Bob

Bob took a nice break this week from running since he hurt his knee a little bit during the Warriors for William race and wanted to let his little "bits" heal up... so he headed out for a nice bike ride in the afternoon sunshine!

10/29/13 ~ Thirsty Bob

Bob has been trying out water bottles lately to see if he should be using one when he runs. He gets thirsty, then he drinks like a fish when he returns from a training session, then he feels like puking up all the water because his poor little body isn't used to all the intake and outlet of water yet... Bob thinks he should read some books on nutrition and hydration and sees a trip to the bookstore in his future!

IMG_0762.jpg

10/30/13 ~ Foam Roller Model Bob

Bob got word from his favorite running store that these SUPER COOL new colored medium sized foam rollers just came in! Bob was SO excited that he ran right down to the store to snap one up... He has also decided that he can be just like the foam-roller model if he runs enough and practices not falling off the roller! Bob thinks you should stay tuned for fun foam rolling adventures!
