New RnR photo/Update on my running
Here is my official photo I ended up buying from the Rock n Roll Marathon that took place June 3. The other photo was one I pulled from the photo ordering site before I purchased. Wow, time has really gone by. It has been over three months.
I did not get to run the America's Finest City Half Marathon on Aug. 20 since it was sold out back in early July when I went to sign up. This is the first time they sold out so early. Usually I register within 2 weeks. I can't commit that early since I may have injuries. So now I have been keeping a base mileage since June. I upped it a bit lately since I now will most likely run the Long Beach Half Marathon on Oct. 14. I dread it a bit, but I need to do something long this fall so I don't get out of shape for the Boston Marathon next April. I will be doing that one for the 5th time. Hopefully I will not be injured this time.
I have been playing tennis once a week lately. I get really, really sore from tennis that it affects my running. I wish I could do both. When I start marathon training I cannot play tennis. It just affects me too much. Now, I can get away with playing once a week. I used to play in college so I missed it. The US Open had been on the last 2 weeks so I got inspired to play again. I am certainly rusty.
