Last week I felt weary most of the week. This week I feel like I have plenty of energy. Could the reason be that I bought a fuel belt on Monday, never having owned nor worn one before? Does a drink of Gatorade every 5k on my long runs make that much difference? Apparently so. After 49 years running, I have learned something new. Alternatively, after 49 years running, my body has changed and I need to drink more.

Bucket List - 40 things to do before I die
See my Facebook Notes page: The first one to be ticked off is #22: just this morning I have bought tickets to a Switchfoot concert. Better not tick them off too fast.

  1. You forgot Deek on the left pointing to all the Geese ;)

    I think you'll enjoy the fuel belt (make sure particular seams don't rub the skin - I put tape over them). Perhaps a combination of both? Even 12k is a long run these days!

  2. I should have announced a caption contest. What's Deek saying?
