Scott's New Year's resolution was to run. He didn't say how far or how often, but just to do it - at least once. We're big fans of very attainable goals in this family.
It was August when Scott decided it was time to cross that goal off his list. A few months ago, after jogging twice he decided to sign up for a race. Not a normal race, like a kids fun run or a 5K , but a half-marathon!
So he's been training in the heat of Hawaii and the freezing cold that is suddenly Northern California. He even bought shoes that he hasn't already owned for several years and that he hasn't already used to mow the lawn.
Last weekend Scott and a friend even drove THREE HOURS to a race. Scott entered the eight mile trail run and his friend James ran the 50K. That's right, 5-0-K. These two may run different races, but they have the same ideas about how to save money. The night before the race they CAMPED in the race parking lot. James slept in his awesome van and Scott slept on the Aerobed on the grass.
I think we need a van so Scott can start training for the Ironman.
