Three Things Thursday: Gonna Train For A Marathon

OK, Three Things Thursday, here we go.

1. I’m going to train for a marathon! Now, for those of you who know me, you’re probably not very impressed. I have 104 of them under my belt — probably more than the number of softball games I’ve played. But I haven’t really trained for one in two years. And I haven’t trained for one since I moved up to 5,400 feet here in Colorado from sea level in California. And it’s the Boston Marathon — my favorite race. So, I’m going to pretend like I’m a runner again. The past six months have been extremely difficult for me with all the things going on with my son Jack, so hopefully this will be a nice positive.

2. I’m on a push-up kick, and I’m not really sure why. I set a goal of doing 50,000 push-ups this year because, well, I don’t know why. I guess it’s because it’ll keep my fitness activity more well-rounded than just cardio. And maybe my wife Tiffany will think I look better with my shirt off. And those two justifications might not be listed in order. But I have a spreadsheet. Through yesterday, I have 3,420, an average of 148.7 per day. I’m on pace for 54,274 and need to average 136.2 per day the rest of the way. I’m kind of hoping I get stronger and can make a push towards 100,000. We’ll see. And yes, I’m a geek for having this data.

3. You MUST check out this book on Amazon. Even moreso, check out the reviews! This might be the funniest thing I’ve seen in a long, long time.

P.S. Join Jack’s Army!

That’s all. Have a great weekend! You training for anything? You have any silly goals for 2013? You ever crashed into a big boat? Have you joined Jack’s Army?
