Jimmy’s Running Diary: Part 1

There’s nothing better than a being stuck in the house during a snowstorm to make you want to clean everything, organize your out of control closet, and go through your nightstand drawers.  The amount of stuff that collects in or around my nightstand is truly out of control.  During my cleaning spree, I did not realize that I would come across this little gem….

Diary 1

That’s right – Jimmy’s Running Diary from 2010.  Back before everything was digital and in an app format, people used to actually buy running diaries to track their running progress.  I remember buying this diary for Jimmy; however, I do not remember him actually using it.  I was getting ready to throw it away – but something told me to look inside.  Page by page I flipped through the diary, realizing not only is Jimmy athletic and sporty – but he is also super funny.   So please enjoy the following few posts courtesy of Jimmy circa 2010.

Tune back in tomorrow to see how Jimmy’s training plans continue.  I am sorry I am leaving you hanging with so many unanswered questions…

Will he finish that half marathon – or will he become a professional mover?  How “beast mode” will he go? What Petey Pablo song did he end up downloading?  And most importantly, how can he drink 4 margaritas without feeling sick from all that sugar?
