There once was a runner named A.C.,
Whose wife left for Italy,
Twenty six posts to the blog,
Three weeks in a fog,
Yes, he missed her terribly
Thanks everybody for following along.
Thanks to Neil Z for joining me.
I am going to rest now...

I guess the idea was that if it was public, that would provide extra motivation to keep the vow. But that was the one and only post to that blog, so I guess it didn't work too well for me.

I will run the 2007 Umstead marathon...... even if my knee caps finally crumble to dust
... even if my hamstrings snap like used dental floss
... i will run it.
Let the training begin.
The performance in any race will be inversely proportional to how the runner feels the week before.
Ran the dogs 1.6 miles in 18 minutes. OW! Lower back, butt, hamstrings very stiff and sore.Hurts really bad to run. Knees hurting really bad too. AwfulYet, I ended up far exceeding my expectations in that race, and felt great at the end.
