Chasing 42

Life, the Universe, & Running

Daily Chase: Vol. 33

Another weekend is in the books, and it was a busy but quite enjoyable couple of days! The weather took a turn for the better, and I was able to get out and enjoy it in between time working and handling the other various chores that encompass most weekends. It’s been interesting to watch the seasons unfold in Delaware, and I’m enjoying the fact that regardless of what each day brings, it’s all new and amounts to more information to catalog for future reference!

Run: I got home from work on Friday and squeezed in my run to keep my streak in check. I was out the door by 6AM the next morning for a few hours of solitary running as well, before heading in to tackle a busy day. Everyone comes out of the woodwork at a running store when the weather is nice! On Sunday, I headed out to Brandywine Creek State Park with the epicurean and Lulu with the sole goal of hitting the vertical climb. After some delightful trail running and countless hill repeats, I was a happy trail runner!

Hitting maintenance hill!

Thought: The Oscars are on tonight, and no doubt means millions of dollars flowing into the local economy as highly paid actors and actresses put their enormous paychecks to use. We’ve already paid our money to see the films, so now it’s their turn to pat themselves on the back and assign awards that will result in even more money going into their pockets based on bonuses that were predetermined in their contracts. I love movies as much as the next person (when they are of a certain quality, of course), but did you ever stop to ask yourself if the performance you just watch really justified the millions of dollars they were paid? On the flip side, you could spend your time outside enjoying the natural beauty of the world. It turns out that #chasing42 saves you money too 😉
