One Hundred Thirty-Five

Track There are not a lot of things that I have done 135 times.  I have walked two hundred steps on a pair of stilts when I was 10 years old.  I have bounced two thousand times on a pogo stick with out stopping.  And now I have run a round a track one hundred thirty-five times.  Before you freak out...135 laps on this track only equaled about 14 miles. 

All the loops didn't drive me crazy.  I actually felt like I accomplished something pretty cool. 

My friend Robin Barden is the reason I ran it.  She is training for the Boston Marathon, and she is a real tough runner.  She had me beat after 5 miles.  I still managed to stick with her through the fourteen miles...until the last lap.  She had enough energy to sprint the last lap and leave me in the dust. I have to give you credit Robin, you are an awesome runner.

The next day I was pretty sore, but she didn't feel a thing.  My right calf muscle suffered the most damage from all the left handed turns.

135 was a lot of fun...but I am still looking forward to those outdoor runs.
