Time to Retire

I would love calves like the dude in this picture.

I went running this morning at around 7:30 am. I had to do it that early because the heat becomes unbearable if one waits later in the day. I see people running in the middle of the afternoon and I always wonder...why? The entire time, I kept hearing, You're a fool, L. Britt. You should be in bed. Fortunately, I was able to turn up my iPod to drown out that nagging voice, and I finished my run.

I think it's time to retire my sneakers. My shins, ankles and knees are feeling the road in a way they shouldn't. I have to admit, I'm feeling a bit blue about this. These are the sneakers that I ran the Marathon in. They are the first sneakers that I was professionally fitted for. These are the first sneakers I bought in a specialty store, and not at the local Modell's. I am very proud of the fact that I've put in the requisite miles to wear them out, but I will miss them.

Goodbye, my dear Sauconys... :(
