Aaaaaannnd we're back.
I'm in the midst of training for the Blue Ridge Half Marathon. I ran this last year. It was a tough course, but it was good to run. Some time after the race, runners are able to look through pictures of themselves that were taken during the race. Ouch.
A while back I ran the Blacksburg Classic too. This one was just a 5k. I saw pictures of me in their photostream too. Dang.
I've come to realize something - I just don't run pretty.
I'm okay with it though - I'm comfortable enough in my stride right now.
Walkjogrun is a website that I use to track my progress in training as well as find new routes. There are several sites like this out there, but I'm a fan of these guys. Recently, they posted a video on their Facebook page that really made me laugh and I just wanted to share it. Enjoy.
I'll be honest, I think I kinda run like the Dandy in the arms and the face of the Flight-less Bird.
(BTW I found a definition of dandy that's a good description of this running style - A man unduly devoted to style, neatness, and fashion in dress and appearance. The guy in the video is committed to that running style for sure.)
What about you?
