Business on the Run…
Today I woke at 6am. I planned to meet my friend Pete for a run and to discuss some business ideas we each are kicking around.
After eating breakfast, and slowly knocking the cobwebs out of my head, I left the house around 7:20 and ran 5.5 miles before meeting him at 8am. We ran 6 miles together. The fact that he is a much faster runner than I made the conversation challenging. But I survived. It helped that it was a beautiful morning: cool, dry, with sun breaks.
You might wonder what it’s like to conduct a business meeting while running a 7:30min mile. Well, I guess that’s just how Pete and I roll. I guess the fact that we are both endurance athletes and entrepreneurs makes the site less unusual.
After our meeting, I headed home, and ended up finishing up with 14.5 miles at approximately a 7:41 average pace. Not bad considering I am shooting for a 8min pace for my next marathon. The only problem is, my foot is a little sore today. Hopefully I haven’t pushed myself to hard. I’ve had a history of self induced/over-training based injuries.
