Runsomnia Day Two

Today I feel somewhat like this...(19 second video!)

Everything is a copy of a copy of a copy...

For the second or third night in a row, I have woken up at 11:00 p.m. or so with run thoughts.  "AmItrainingenough?Didtheroutemaplogthatlittleareaineastcowbuttarkansasright?Ismykneehurting?WhycannotIgettosleep?Didthetshirtdesigngetdoneright?Moonpies!Donations!"   The killer is that I have not been able to get back to sleep until..2:30, which then becomes "time to run".   Today, I skipped my morning workout and will make it up at lunch time.  I simply needed to grab some sleep!

54 Days and counting....

Last night, I had a great conversation with another USA Crosser, Jason Gross.  Jason ran from New York to Cali 6 years ago.  It was a solid chat.  I learned a few things, but I also got some validation about many of the approaches and logistics planning that we have been doing.   Jason ended up raising $40,000 for Diabetes...which is pretty cool.  He averaged like 25 miles per run day...  Thanks Jason for your time if you read this!

I also got an email from an old boss, still friend/mentor (in my top 10 most influential people on my life guys) saying he and his wife are going to sponsor my Moonpie needs during the run!  I still think a "Powered By Moonpies" campaign is a missed opportunity for the folks in Chatanooga...but I will take the Moonpie sponsorship from a 20 year friend.  Thanks Kong!

54 Days Away...

It is starting to blur....

  1. Planning something like this is exhausting in itself. Come March 1, things will just be and then you can enjoy the scenery and pounding the ole pavement.

    I hope things like donations will just come pouring in without much effort at the point.
