I'm back!

Last time I was on this blog was over 2 and a half years ago. Dope. I'm going to start running again. For a quick recap: I went on an lds mission (Calgary, Canada) and ran kinda sporadically throughout the two years that I was there. I impulsively signed up for and ran the AF half two days after I got home (not bad for taking 2 years off; 1:25:52 and 25th place). Then I stopped. I dabbled in bodybuilding for the last 6 months (and got frickin jacked), but I miss running so I'm coming back in 2018 with the hopes of getting into marathon racing.

Anyways, today I ran 3 miles at a 6:58 pace. Probably a bit faster than I wanted as I'm going to be easing back in and taking things pretty easy for the next few weeks. I felt good though and it was a beautiful day so I went for it.

More to come.

Kept it nice and slow today. I don't know exactly how slow because my watch is being ridiculous and kept deleting my run and restarting. uuugggghhhhh. What a bunch of str8 cattle excrement. I was mildly pissed, but have since repented so it's all good. I'll assume I kept it arround 8:00/mile.

I also decided that it would be a good time to finally make my belated switch to forefoot running so we'll see how that goes over the next couple of weeks.

Felt really good!
