Turn up the music, let's have a good time
Don't pull no punches, lay it right on the line
New wave, old wave, third wave will do
It don't matter when I'm dancing with you
All I wanna do is rock 'n' roll
All I wanna do is rock and rock some more
Wanna rock, Wanna rock
~April Wine, "Wanna Rock"
Somewhere I read, "the difference between a runner and an athlete is a name on a race application." If that's the case, today, I'm an athlete. March 14th will mark my return to endurance racing when I cross the starting line of the inaugural Rock N Roll Half Marathon - Dallas.
Since my last long race I've run a bit, cycled some, and the swim, well I've done that even less. A break from regimented training was needed and welcomed but the time has come to kick the couch and pound the pavement. Bye, bye sleeping past dawn and hello hill repeats, tempo runs, and fartleks. So-long, cheezy poofs and welcome back recovery drinks. It's time to get back on track, the oval kind, not just the idiom and prepare for the 2010 race season. Check back here as I announce my schedule soon. There are a couple of surprises in store.
