There's a Noreaster moving in...

Sometimes people travel to see friends and still want to get in a little workout. Sometimes they get to said place and the weather has changed. Not wanting to let circumstances dictate behavior, these same people decide to carry on as planned. And oftentimes, these same people have a great time running 7 miles in sleet and wind. The dude in the pictures is Nate, a buddy of mine from college. Nate's getting back into running and is racing a 5-miler in a month or so. This was his longest run in years. Life is good.

Bringing Crazy back

So running a marathon brings a tremendous sense of accomplishment. For me it also brought a tremendous amount of lazy along with it. Putting on 10-15 lbs over the winter didn't help out too much, but crazy sam is on his way back. He's eating better, cutting out dessert all over again and generally stepping it back up to previous levels. I now just wish I had another couple hours in the day to work out more and sleep as much as necessary.
