Well it is time for our one post for this semester, hopefully that is a joke despite the recent history saying otherwise. I have realized that most of my life has revolved around pavement lately. I have studied pavement, worked on pavement, exercised on pavement, and fallen on pavement. I guess it is about time I post about my pavement thoughts.
To avoid too much embarrassment I will not talk too much about my studying and interest in the actual pavement. Some people might think that it is a little weird, such as my parents and siblings. Other people find it sick and confusing why I like to exercise on the pavement as well and everyone probably assumes it is sad that I fall on the pavement. I just cannot win I guess. The worst part is that I tripped on my own shoe laces and down I went. At least the pavement and I have a special bond. Though that bond still did not soften the impact, dang guess I offended the pavement gods.
Kristen and I are training for the Ogden half and full marathon respectively. The race is May 21st. We are pretty excited and a bit nervous. Kristen will be awesome and I hope she enjoys the run. The race is well designed and very beautiful. I hope I survive the full marathon, made it through one last year, but I was not very proud of my effort nor my outcome. I jumped into a jogging and weight training class this semester in order to force myself to get off my butt. Nothing like knowing that I cannot get a refund for the race to motivate myself to actually exercise, dang I must be lazy. Well at least my friend, the pavement, and I get to spend hours together talking about our days and the weather. Don't you wish you had a friend as dependable as concrete and asphalt.
