|I assume this is how confused he was. Except he's not as cute as this very confused giraffe.|
Our attempt to meet up was also doomed by the fact that it started pouring as soon as we got to the lake area. And that there's tons of apparent bridges and parking lots that look similar. Let me tell you something about Baton Rouge. The weather here doesn't know how to do something half heartedly. When it rains, it doesn't just drizzle, it goes all out in a downpour.
|Totally true. And sort of relevant, because it started pouring right when I got to the parking lot.|
Now comes the dilemma. I would love to meet my major running goal for this year and run a marathon. There's a perfectly timed one in Baton Rouge in the first weekend of December. However, I am not certain I'll be able to get all my training runs in outside.
In an attempt to not fall off the wagon again and also so that I could get some cross training in, I signed up for a gym today. My plan is to go to group classes like spinning. Now that there's some monetary commitment, I'll at least get some good cross training in.
So I know that I'll most likely always have a treadmill to get my runs in. Other than the crushing boredom, I'm worried that running at the treadmill will make me super unprepared to run an outdoor race.
|This is totally what I do. I sneak looks at the speeds of everyone around me. I'm glad I'm not the only one.|
In a random note, I brought the sexy back in my newly obtained prescription safety glasses.
|Whoa close up. But look at the side shields on those glasses. Yeah, this is how us chemical engineers do it.|
