I had a fantastic hike yesterday with Lester and his son. It was another hike I was getting time on my Vibrams. It might not have been the best idea to wear them on a trail I know was too rocky, but I thought I was ready. Today my feet are a little on the tender side and hooooo boy do my legs feel it. It’s crazy how a shoe can make all the difference in using leg muscles you don’t normally use.
Today I am taking out a few friends to do a hike. It’s going to be maybe 8 miles max. It’s the once a month/two months invite people to hike and not kill them with running. I will of course make them run, but it’s really for their own good. ;)
I plan on doing the MLK march down town on Monday. I’ve always wanted to do it, so it should be great!
In an attempt to get my friend Mark off the couch this year I had to incorporate my evil plan with his brothers evil plan.
My plan was to get Mark to run a 5k with me. Simple enough. Well, apparently his brother is a little bit more evil than I am. I had to up the evil level a notch and decided to see if I could Mark to run in an all woman’s half marathon. His brother said he would…with a little more gusto than I thought he was capable of. After all the fanfare it would seem that Mark would run in this wearing all pink, a boa and tiara.
The next day I figured I would be nice to my friend and make it very simple. Half marathon, at night and at the end he can have a metal that glows in the dark. The best part is he doesn’t really have to drive anywhere, it’s in his area.
I will be happy to see these two brothers run together in this half.
During our hike I thought of a bunch of things that Lester and I could do this year and I’m excited to start the planning. It’s going to require a retarded amount of sunblock though.
