House Cleaning and #RunEatTweetAZ

Happy Monday gangeez.  We gots lots to discuss.   I’m fairly certain that this week will fly by fast.  I’m in tapering mode…sort of.  The prize is at the end of the Ventura Marathon in September.  But this week, we have The San Francisco Marathon.  I’m doing the half…Mrs. TSA and I leave on Friday and duh…it’s gonna be a RACECATION.


Silent Saturday (and new races upcoming)

Like running on the moon

So, a couple of weeks ago, I suffered through some peroneal tendinitis.  During that time, I was still running under Uncle Pete’s crazy mileage training.  Remember I said I was stubborn?  I didn’t want to stop running.  I masked the injury with some tape and NSAID.  I was so worried about not getting the mileage in for the Ventura Full, that I basically forced myself though the training runs.

i just ran a mile

A mile is a mile is a mile

I’m sure you’ve heard this before…that no matter if you run a 14 minute mile, or a 7 minute mile… all you ran was a mile!  That’s probably a hard one to swallow for those in training…especially when trying to attain a specific pace.


I’m moving to the OC

Yeah, that’s what I kept telling my running mentor lAZy yesterday as we I struggled through the last 14 3 hellacious miles.  I had to get in 18…and settled for 14.  At mile 10, I started doing the run/walk method.  My quads were on fire and I’m sure my body temperature was over 110 degrees.


Silent Saturday, Mrs. TSA bday, and coming back to Hot Ass AZ


You’re never too old for Disneyland

That’s what I tell myself anyway.  Mrs. TSA and my kids can ride the rides all day.  Me, well, I’m not the most patient person.  And I really don’t like standing around for 40-60 minutes waiting in line for a ride that only takes 120 seconds, if that.  I’m sure when I was a kid I didn’t mind the wait or the heat or how expensive the food was because I didn’t have to pay for anything.


I could live here in the OC

…If I wasn’t so afraid of earthquakes.  And then lAZy made me chortle chortle by saying she could live in HI if not for sharks and tsunamis.  Touch`e.  So, we gotta keep this one light and quick.  My fam is already at Disney enjoying the rides.  They’ve already texted me that it’s not bizzy and have already gotten on 3 rides in less than an hour.

I’m going to PiYO at Disneyland

I think I’ve gotten the hang of blogging “on the road”.  Today, this blog comes to you from the I-10, on the way to Anaheim, CA.  All the kids are home and we decided to take one last family trip before everyone has to go back to school.  We are headed over to the “Happiest Place on Earth”…Disneyland.  The drive to Anaheim isn’t too bad.


Happy Independence Day!

Hope everyone is enjoying their 4th of July!  I am!  I am enjoying my independence fo’ sho’!  But…Is it bad that I’ve pretty much purged what I learned about Independence Day after grabbing my diploma?  Anyone have to look up what was it that took place on this day… the event that afforded us a day off from work and a day to just enjoy any way we choose to?  If you were like me, I had to google it.  Gah!  I know…sad huh?!
