It's Our Turn: Random thoughts running through my head

Email News Alerts

OK, all set. I’m wearing my running watch, tunes going, ear buds on. I think I’ll run a 10K (6.2 miles) today. Got to keep training for the half-marathon in San Jose in a few weeks. Hit the GPS on my watch. Go!...Ugh, why are the first few blocks always so hard? Legs are elephant heavy, left hammy is twinging, breathing is off, already tired. Maybe I’ll just do a 5K…At least it’s a beautiful day out, not so blasted hot like it’s been. Bright blue sky.
