Full disclosure, I don't own a walkman anymore. I do however own an ipod. I don't ever call it a walkman - but last night I apparently did.
My children looked at me like I was speaking a different language. Youngest daughter asked: "What is a walkman?" I had to explain what it was. Oldest daughter responded: "Oh, I thought it might be someone who walks alongside you when you are running slow."
* Speaking of different languages. My son went to the library earlier this week and brought home a device that is basically a book on tape / digital recording. I don't remember what the device is called, but it is like an ipod. The name of the book / recording: "Speaking Italian for Dummies". Apparently he wants to learn a new language this Summer. I think it is just a teenage boy's ploy to get an accent that teenage girls admire and swoon after. Hey, being from New Zealand - it worked for me when I moved to the US.
* I go to see the Chiropractor every couple of weeks - have been doing so for about 1 1/2 years now (started going after a car accident - rear ended by a Trash truck). I don't know if I am in the best shape of my life right now, but I am in the best shape I have been in a while - thanks to running, eating (mostly) better and I really think going to get cracked has helped too. So, shout out and big thanks to Dr. Harvey for my continued improvement.
* Slacker Half Marathon tomorrow. Really looking forward to it. 3 goals:
C) beat my PR (also set there, 2 years ago) of 1:36:06
B) Run 7 min mile average for a finish time of 1:31:30
A) Go nuts and beat 1:30 (6:53 pace - yikes, that's going to hurt)
Race report Monday assuming I can walk / type / see straight.
