Guam has these crazy birds called, the Black Drongo. (*you can read about them here)
And they look like this.
They make my running outside go from enjoyable to a paranoid sprint at times.
Wikipedia says they are aggressive.
That's a mild statement.
They are psycho birds.
(*if you are old enough, yeah, like the movie)
But now that the boys are out of school - I hope to be logging more miles outside. (*before, I was running super early so I could get home in time to get everyone up and on the bus. I am starting to hate running on a treadmill.)
But what do to about those birds..........
It's only funny to watch someone else get dive-bombed.
When it happens to you - you spend the next 1/2 mile having a conversation in your head about crazy birds.
My long term goal is 1000 miles in a year.
And to keep track, I am going from birthday to birthday.
I still enjoy using the Nike+GPS to keep track of miles and pace.
In May, I logged 61.36 miles with an average pace of 11.42
June (so far) 71.00 (ave. pace of 10.29)
All total, I have run almost 300 miles since I started in March - which means,
according to some runners.
I know a lot of women with a lot of shoes.
I have flip flops and running shoes........those are my go-to shoes for all occasions.
But new running shoes I am excited about!~
I will start to break them in as I say good-bye to my official, first pair as a runner.
Anyone up for the 1000 mile challenge?
It sounds like a lot.
But seriously, it's only 2.8 miles per day.
You could walk it all in an hour a day.
I know you are out there.
Let's lace 'em up and get going!
