Brief Summer Update

My first week of summer vacation has been great so far.  I was able to run and do stadium stairs with good friends a few times this week.  I’ve also ventured over to the OU track and did speedwork. 

I’ve also been really lucky this week.  With school out, I tend to stay up late at night and this led to boredom.  So to break the boredom I took 20 dollars to the casino in hopes of winning enough money to pay for one month membership to the YMCA.  Needless to say, I won just enough money and I will be attending classes in the morning at the Y.

This may not sound like a big deal to you but having the opportunity to push myself at Y classes gets me closer to one of my summer goals……lose weight and break below the 200 pound barrier.  I’ve been over 200 pounds for over 15 years and this year will mark the first time i’m within striking distance of that goal. 

Anyway, I will be running at the Sooner State Games this weekend.  Will not have my camera crew (wife) but I will manage to get a few pictures.  Will most likely run the 5K.

Hope your summer is going well.

  1. Congrats on your casino winnings. You must have the touch. All I ever win in casinos is a hangover.

    Good luck at the Sooner State games Saturday. I was considering it but have decided against running the 1/2. I ran it last year and it’s a pretty good race.

    Have a great summer, we need to run together sometime. Maybe you can show me around Norman.
