I was actually in Florida over the weekend attending my nieces debutant/18 yr birthday party.
Felt like an old man watching these teenagers doing crazy things on the dance floor to hip-hop music.
I know If I would take them out on the trails for a long run, I think most of them would pass out.
But me trying to do this dance step called a "SUPERMAN" I really thought I would hurt myself trying to dance like that, so I just sat in my seat feeling like an old man.
At least I could dance with my daughter and keep up with her moves. It was the 1st time I got to dance with her at a party. Made me think about alot of things and how she is growing up so fast, but I think I still have a few more years left until she totally ditches me during a party to hangout with her cooler teenage friends. So these moments I will cherish.
On the running end, time is flying by, 14 weeks left until the 100 mile big show. Hopefully get some long trail runs in this weekend. No Ultra races around the area until February, Boohoo ~ it does make running for a long time so much easier.
Then finally the x-mas lights and x-mas tree have been put away and the holiday distractions are behind me now. But the holiday eating is a hard habit to break, to many leftover cookies and deserts lying around the house these days to pile up the calories.
I also do wonder of late, what was I thinking, trying to get ready within 16 weeks for this 24+ hour race? But what the hell, I'm entered so I plan to be at the starting line that day.

Let the "stepping" begin, then again I think that is a dance move as well?
