Miles: 1.3, 1.07, 3.59, 3.16
Power song: Settle Down
Dedicated to: Father Time
I’ll be the first to admit that the only reason I’ve successfully completed every run to date isn’t so much because of dedication or good character on my part. Rather, it’s due to my intense fear of public humiliation. And someone recently told me I looked skinny.
That said, I can now count this gentleman as an inspiration to keep on going:
I mean seriously, people. I’m not sure if you can tell, but he’s about 100 years old. If this guy can get out of bed in the morning and haul his butt to the gym a couple of times a week to run, then I (and you…and you over there!) certainly can too.
So I dedicate my runs to him. Because he’s an amazing role model. And because he may be one of the few people on the planet I could beat in a race.
See you soon.
