I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

Friday Morning Fog Run Selfies!

… not only foggy, humid. Was welcomed as well … too many cold morning runs lately. Felt so good stepping out the front door, and not feeling a chill. Happy Friday y’all!

Hey mister, where you headed? Are you in a hurry?

I have the greatest playlist for my runs … Hitchin’ A Ride started it on shuffle, and a mere 10 seconds into my run those are the first 10 words I hear in my earbuds … I’m laughing thinking Billie Joe Armstrong is ACTUALLY talking to me, lol! What a Nimrod (get it??), lol!! This mister was in a hurry, and on my 12th consecutive 8K day … FINALLY cracked the 40 minute barrier – 39:30 for 8.01K to be exact … my average pace; 4:55/K …WOOHOO!! And look at my steady-as-he-goes-splits, after running hard for half an hour with 6.01K in my wake, I reeled off a 4:44K … my fastest kilometer split EVER. Don’t know why, can’t explain it, hmmm, come to think of it … I did load up on carbs last night – tons of linguine w/ homemade sauce and all that OMG focaccia, lol! Anyways, here’s my splits!

Don’t stop believin’

hold on to the feelin’ GREAT song, heard it this morning on my three minute drive to the gym, turned it LOUD … talk about getting pumped for my workout or what! And btw, that’s when Journey was STILL Journey … not some bullshit Steve Perry-less incarnation being passed off as Journey!

Some will win
Some will lose
Some are born to sing the blues

Frankel Finale!!

October 20, 2012 … last time this champion will grace a racecourse … fitting it occurs on Champions Day at Ascot, and with the Queen in attendance. Some have hailed him the greatest of all time, and while it’s impossible to compare horses from different generations – it doesn’t stop us railbirds from trying. And being a bit of a pundit, am posting a tad prematurely …  Farewell Frankel – fourteen for fourteen!!

Frankel’s recent work – galloping at Newmarket racecourse …

Frankel’s race history (minus today’s – my apologies) …
