Austin Marathon Training Program 2008 : Tues 5:45 PM Beginner at Anderson HS. Remember this is just great exercise and that I’m only going to run the half marathon. I’m retired from full marathons, and I doubt that I’ll be running any races leading up to it either. On a second note, my son, Matthew, is beginning to prepare for his first marathon and I will do anything, yes anything, to help him complete this goal.

New Shoes

I stopped by Rogue Equipment and bought a pair of Nike Structure Triax 11 running sneakers. I tried to buy a pair last week at RunTex but they were out of them, and when I phoned Rogue Equipment later that day they said they had my size – woohoo. However I’ve been so busy or forgetful that although I’ve been meaning to get the sneaks I’ve not has a chance to get downtown to their shop to get them until yesterday. The old ones were absolutely worn out. I ran the Austin Marathon in them and should have retired them probably months ago. A rough calculation of miles on them is approximately 500 miles, that for me is about 200 miles too many. Katie very nicely today switched my running chip and dog-tag to my new shoes.
