Long Run and Simon's Cat

My long run this morning was awesome.  I ran with the big boys and kept up...that is until they did fartleks at the end.   The big boys includes John (BF), Gerald and John and usually I get a head start on them since they are faster or I need to run a longer distance. They usually run about 8:30's on the way out and faster on the way back and have been running about 10 miles. Today I decided to run with them and I managed to stay with them the whole time and we averaged 8:17 pace.  It was tough but I stayed with them and I feel great for having such a great run.  To run faster you have to practice running faster.

I'm a cat fan.  I think I was a cat in a previous life and retained the 1/2 cat in my current life.  Simon cat cartoons are awesome.  Simon is always hungry and getting into mischief.  There is a new cartoon out special for Christmas (don't let Jamoosh see this because this is a cut video and Jamoosh likes videos where the cat is put in a self wash thingy. Mean! Mean Jamoosh and no, I'm not going to link to the video of the poor kitty wigging out in the cat washer).



Happy Running!
