Nalgas!

This stands for something in Spanish, the meaning of which I'd rather not reveal.
Yesterday, was a lousy day for me indeed. I ran the NYRR Gridiron 4M without lust, and the hills in Central Park ate me up and spat me out. I never do well in the winter especially on hilly courses. This one is going to bite me for sometime though. My 8:01 pace, which only 2 years ago, would have been considered acceptable, was abominable. I need to lose weight and run more.

I am cutting back on races. All part of the incredibly tight budget that I have been faced with. Even with that said, next Sunday is the Bronx Half-Marathon. Unless something amazing happens to me this week, I feel a major failure coming on. I've never done well on this course, and I am in completely incomplete.

Tonight I am hitting the treadmill. Only 3 short miles though, because I only finished racing yesterday.

I have been enjoying your blog. Our paths have probably crossed 100 times, I will look for you in the Bronx

Since you have unlocked the secret of "Nalgas" now I will share mine. As part of helping me to pace myself, I usually run behind a woman with a good set of them for about a mile. Part of my downfall, was that these nalgas were slower than my pace....but damn! Nice nalgas!!! LOL
