Conference Call Wonderings...

1. Man, I hate conference calls. Hate em with a passion. I guess I hate them because they are never short calls, they are usually at least an hour or so.

2. My race is tomorrow. 10K Race. I am a little nervous about it for no reason. I know I can do the mileage, not worried about that. I found out that some people from where I work are also doing it, so that means I have to beat them now! I am still shooting for under 48 minutes, and I think I can do it, but it is going to be cold and possibly rainy/snowy in the morning (Is that my excuse?)

3. Yesterday my waterproof case came for my ipod. So now I can rock out in the pool. I hope this is as cool as it sounds to me. I know I will have major problems keeping up with the lap count, but I don't care! Rockin some Motley Crue or GNR while swimming just sounds cool. Going this afternoon, so I will let you know how it works.

4. Seems like a lot of blogs are doing giveaways lately. If only I had some cool stuff to giveaway!

5. I applied for the Brooks ID program, hopefully they like what I sent them and then I can rock their gear for them! That would be very cool!


  1. You will own the 10k! I won't put my prediction for your time here, since it'll put some weirdo pressure on you, but lets just say lower than 48 minutes!

    Now get back to that conference call!

  2. your swim workout you posted on your last post kick my butt! it felt good to go fast that many times. thanks again for posting it.

  3. You could swim for time instead. I started doing that and timing my last 100 to figure out the distance that I had swum. It isn't always 100% accurate, but I sure quit stressing about it.

    Stick to your strategy for the 10K and don't get sucked up with the super speedy people. I am stoked to see what time you post!

  4. Hi James,
    Jon just gave you a shout out in his blog so I thought I would come and take a visit. Good luck tomorrow running your 10k!! Don't worry about the people you work with running it too. Having them there will give you more motivation to kick it into high gear:) I am sending you under 48 minute run fast vibes!!!

  5. I hope you make it on Brooks ID Inpsire. I love the group
