Sunday's Rainy Day Run

I got home today after gallivanting around Manchester, eating Taco Bell, and hanging out in Newbury Comics, and my dad said, "Hey, wanna go for a run?" And I was like, "Yeah I do." So we got on our sweatpants and our running shoes and headed off into the rain.

We made the first mile in a little under 10 minutes and after that I lost track of time. We got wet, had fun, and didn't feel shame due to lack of exercise...shame on you who didn't join us on our run. You know who you are....

Our mileage came in at exactly 3 miles. Yay us!! Is this a sign that my dad will feel good enough to continue to run with me?? I hope so :)

Early Morning Run and It's Playlist

Alright, so my dad's knee has been bothering him so for a while I'll be running Han style...Solo. Today I woke up and realized I hadn't run since last Thursday and I was like "I can't allow this." I got my butt out of bed made a smoothie put on my gear and hit the road. I made a big loop and ran for exactly 5.5 miles (according to google maps) Here is my run mapped out. Ignore the letters, it was the only way i could get the loop to come up on google maps.

Well, without my dad, runs are pretty lonely. So, I brought my mp3 player along and put it on shuffle to keep things interesting. I liked the mix my crazy robot computer companion picked. Here is my random playlist for the morning run:

"This is Why I'm Hot" by MIMS
"Break" by Jurassic 5
"Apples for the Innocent" by Say Hi to Your Mom
"A Day at the Races" by Jurassic 5
"Heart On" by Eagles of Death Metal
"Trust" by Thrice
"Complete and Utter Confusion" by Fear Before the March of the Flames
"Memorial" by Explosions in the Sky
"Cuts Marked in the March of Men" by Coheed and Cambria
"Living Together" by Circa Survive
"So Long, Lonesome" by Explosions in the Sky
"Little Devotional" by Taking Back Sunday
"A Torch to End All Torches" by Thrice
"Sic Transit Gloria..." by Brand New
"Phoenix Ignition" by Thrice
"Slingshot" by Plan B
"Six Days at the Bottom of the Ocean" by Explosions in the Sky

The morning run + awesomely random playlist = wicked fun!!
'til next time

Thursday's Run

Alright, so I (Jared) read somewhere on the internet that it'll help you get motivated to run more if you start a blog about running. So, now I'm here telling you about the runs my dad and I go on. We haven't gone in a while because my father's knee has been bothering him.

Well, last night when my dad got home we decided to go out for a run. Here is a google map thing-a-ma-jig showing our run. We went out for 3 mile run (give or take a tenth of a mile or so) we're not really about exact mileage, we just like going out and running it's a nice feeling.

We'll update this as often as we go running.
