Part of being a runner is being interested in runners who have achieved "elite" status and have made a splash on the world stage. If you've ever known a good runner, you'll know that not all runners are "lungs on legs" and some are actually quite eccentric. Steve Prefontaine once claimed that he "had to" run at least ten miles a day or he would gain ten pounds. He claimed it was because he ate so much pizza and drank so much beer. Allegedly, one day, on a dare, he didn't run. And had gained ten pounds by the next morning. Allegedly. Of course, "Pre" is a pretty extreme example. And although the way he raced was inspiring, his life outside of running was less than so, at least for me. This is not the case with Meb Keflezighi.

IN YOUR OWN HOME!
Tuesday night. Rough day at work. Get home completely exhausted. As I walk in the door from the garage, it hits me. Tempo workout Tuesday. Add in a few inches of snow during the course of the day (and no access from my neighborhood to any other running routes because of it), and that tempo workout will be done...duh duh duuuuuuuhhhh! ON THE TREADMILL! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
After two weeks off, Run Roosh Run is back for 2012. With the original intention of taking only one week off for Christmas, the flu bug bit me hard (thank you nameless co-workers who didn't stay home!) and put me out of commission last week. So I haven't even run since last Tuesday. That being said, that run went phenomenal and I can't wait to get back on the roads and trails. In cased you missed my last post (Getting My Stride Back), I have big plans for 2012.
