Well, my shirt is officially glued to me.  That’s the reasoning behind the weird angle on the pic above.  I ran a little angry tonight.  Not exactly sure why, but sometimes it helps.  I felt good.  I’m much better at tempo runs than actual speed work.  
 I ran past the Pacers General Manager and tried to say “thank you” because they just pulled off a hell of a trade a few days ago.  ”Thank you” isn’t really what came out while running at 6:45 pace.  Who knows what he thought I said.  I don’t even know what I said.
Also, I’m giving more thought to an Ironman after I eventually qualify for Boston. That’s another issue for another day, but that would be so damn awesome.  One goal at a time.  Did you see how I said “eventually” and not “if?”  I’m trying to stay positive.
