1. Big announcement – I sold out. Yes, it’s true.
I was contacted by Ragnar earlier in the week, and I signed a contract to be a Ragnar Ambassador for 2014-15. It’s really a no-brainer on my part – I did 4 this year, and will probably do 4 next year. I love Ragnar. I say nice things about it. I introduce new people to Ragnar, and make them love it too. As always, there will be no sponsored posts on this site, even with regard to Ragnar. It’s basically one of those things where I can answer questions about Ragnar… and of course, @OrtonPants would be happy to answer some too!
2. Tonight is the Rock the Night 5K, formerly known as the Terrapin 5K. I’m looking forward to a nice run along the lakefront and a Bell’s beer as my reward. Also – they have a free shuttle back to Union Station, which saves me a lot of miles on my legs. I can’t wait!
3. Marathon training is going really well this time around. No, seriously, it is. Yes, I’ve biffed a couple of times on my weekend runs for one reason or another, but I’ve always made up the mileage, something I didn’t do in previous cycles. I’m running at a slower pace for training, so my endurance is building like crazy. Every time I get done with a long run, I assume that I’m some sort of badass ultra runner.
