On the road again...

In the end, it was guilt that got me back onto the pavement. There was a commenter named Barb, and she had a simple post: The weather's nice, Jon. Come out and play.

The night I read that, it planted a seed. A seed of guilt. Overnight, the seed flowered. Toss, "Come out and play." Turn. "Come out and play."

In the near silence (believe it or not) of my Santa Monica apartment, I could hear my brand new shoes, three months old and never used, talking to me.

Morning:

7:30. 90 minutes before school. Woke up early. No excuses. Shoes on. Laces up. Hit the road.

In the last week, I've run twice:

One run of 19 minutes, and one of 26.

It's not a marathon. It's probably not a 5k.

And LA's certainly not the Monterey Peninsula.
But it's a good start.

Comments:
woohoo. And welcome back
 
Yay!

I'm so happy you're posting & running again! I check your blog everyday and I've missed you!
 
Yeah!!!!

I so enjoyed your posts during marathon training. Glad to have you back.
 
Woo hoo! I swear I wasn't going for guilt, but heck, if it got you back out there, that's all that counts.

I, in turn, feel guilty that I checked your blog right AFTER deciding NOT to run today. I'm just getting off work at 10:30pm after a 7am start. Not much energy left to lace up. Still, that shouldn't be an excuse. I'd already planned to run early tomorrow, now that I've read your post,I HAVE to. Which is really excellent!

If you're in town this weekend, you should check out the Nautica Malibu Triathlon at Zuma beach... it could be next year's goal. ;-)

So glad to have you back on the road again!
 
not sure what made me look here...

welcome back.
 
WB Jon - i've been checking in on you every week or so. Nice to see you again :)
 
Keep on running!
 
Way to go! I'm so glad you're posting & running again too.

Hi John,

You are well thought of and missed!! Hope law school is treating you nicely, and your shins are starting to behave.

I'll be attempting the Big Sur Marathon again next year..... I sent in an entry to the Big Sur Marathon poster contest and WON! I'd said I would probably do the marathon again someday, and the woman I talked to took that to mean I would be doing it NEXT year, and put that on their website. YIKES!!! hee-hee. So I'm starting my training now. My hamstrings have hampered me off & on since the marathon, so I'm not sure if I'll be able to do it or not, but I'll give it a try.

Please post some crumbs to your blog-- you still have adoring fans out there, no matter what you're doing. Running or not. The guts you showed training and completing the marathon inspired many and are not forgotten.

Wishing you well,
Emily

Jon,
Run, friend! I'm a new runner--just started in August. I love it and hate it all at the same time. I want to train for a half marathon in May. Keep running, keep posting. If you can't do it for yourself right now (and sometimes that happens) then do it for us newbies that you can inspire to becoming "real" runners. Whatever a real runner is, I'd say you're one, and since I want to be one, your posts can be very motivating. Keep up the great work!
 
And on a lighter note than pure trial transcript , check out the funniest trial transcript ever! If it's not serious enough of a topic, well, just pretend it's the Brit's version of trial transcript !
