I’ve always had a weird goal of running from one side of Columbus to the other. A buddy and I did that today on the Alum Creek Trail. Fun, foggy run for my final long run before the Disney Marathon in two weeks. Taper time!

I didn’t trip and fall… Well I did trip, but stayed on my feet. Then I realized it was the shoe that has a tear and not fitting my foot as tight. Rip got worse after this run. I think they are done. 325 miles was apparently their limit. I have another identical pair ready to go. Debating trying to stitch these up and keep them as a back-up muddy pair to trash and beat some more miles in… We will see. But for now… Moving on to a new pair and excited for 18 miles of fun this weekend.

One thing I didn’t calculate with signing up for the Disney Marathon: the peak weeks are the holiday weeks.

I fricking tripped and fell twice this week while running. TWICE! And the last time I tripped and fell was 2 years ago!

First trip, this week, was Sunday morning. Glove palms ate most of it and I’m very glad I was wearing gloves. Landed hard on my ribs so took Monday off. Tuesday run was speedwork and no tripping. Then tripped again today while on my 7 mile run. Fell more gracefully and kinda rolled through it. Both times I tripped on the sidewalk with a slight lip. I think a lot has to do with running in shorts in the cold. Kinda like your lips not working right in the cold after a while. Legs get sluggish too. Temp was 25 today and wind chill was 11. I should have been in tights or pants. Not shorts. Thankfully no major issues other than sore ribs still. Live, run, and learn!

Thankfully it was a little warmer for today’s 14 miles. It was about 30°F with a light breeze when I started at 5AM. Used a personal day for my daughter’s preschool Christmas program. So it was great to get a long run in before that then spent the early afternoon doing bookkeeping for my side business. All my receipts and invoices are all done for the season. It feels so good to have that done. Nap time!
