Flashback Friday: Kept Short

While I made my return to running this week, I have kept my outings short, in the range of three to four miles. And while I also made my return to blogging this week, I will also keep it short today.

We have been blessed with some excellent early autumn weather this week, and I'm looking forward to running this weekend. Perhaps the weather gods are making up for the doomed winter forecast. Of course, I thought the forecast for the Akron Marathon was bad, and it turned out to be a great day.

It seems that the lesson, here, is to worry like hell and overemphasize how absolutely, mind-crushingly bad things will be, and then reality will turn out OK.

At any rate, today is a great day to go home early, so I will.

Back Talk
Wherein we answer questions and stuff.

Jamoosh wonders about the Altra Adams: "Interesting (and good) review. I wonder how well they keep stuff out."

Answer: Quite well. The snugness around the ankle is akin to the Vibram KSOs, which as you know stands for Keep Stuff Out. I have had no issues, and most of my mileage has been on debris-laden terrain.

Nitmos has a fruity question about my newest shoes: "But are they better than watermelon rinds and twine?"

Answer: They certainly don't taste better.

Happy Hour is nearly upon us, teammates. Have a finely brewed weekend. Run well and drink well. Cheers!

Soooo...they taste quite a bit like Pabst?

See how I tied the two together?

And what yummy beers are you drinking these days? Not nearly enough beer talk from you and Jamoosh lately...
