On my goal of "not being fat" and "get semi-fast" again I ran the Houston Half Marathon this weekend. Originally was running it with a friend but she got sick and backed out so I decided to go a bit faster and run with the 1:30 pace group. 2 miles in I was feeling good and pulling ahead of them so I went "fuck it" and went for it. Finished in 1:27 feeling good. Now I think I'm going to aim to BQ this year. Gotta run a 3:10, so really have to do a 3:05.
So I'm not supposed to run with them until they are 6-8 months, so right now long walks are my daily workout. They promptly fall asleep, I get a little workout (pushing a stroller is tough) and my wife gets to nap. Win / Win / Win / Win.
Inspired by Ben's interview with Siri where he stated his fear that some day someone named "Ben Hobbs" would become famous for something like pedophilia, terrorism, etc and forever taint the name I did a Google image search for "ben hobbs" and post your favorite alternate Ben Hobbs.
