This is NOT a post about running splits

I repeat: this is NOT a post about running splits.

If this had been an actual post about running splits, the blog author would have been in complete violation of the Splitless Summer Edict, and therefore may be subjected to serious harassment.

This is only a TEST. Rumor has it that a Pokey Runner, who shall remain unnamed, as been running like blazes in Southern California for the past week. Garmin reports indicate a 10:48 minute mile, which has previously been unheard of, un-thought of, and UNimaginable up until this point. This mile was second in a 3ish mile run, subsequent to an 11:22 split, and then followed by a big freaking hill that just warranted walking. Rumors are circulating that the Pokey Runner was disgustingly sweaty (compliments of SoCal humidity), yet ecstatic after this major running miracle.

Again, this is only a TEST of the Split Posting System. Had this been an actual post about running splits, it would have been followed by either a lot of whining and moaning, OR in this case, a lot of hooting and hollering.

You can now return to your regularly scheduled Blog Programming.

Thank goodness this was only a test. Otherwise I would have to go on and on about how awesome you are and how fast you are becoming and how I knew you could do it. Glad I don't have to do that.

If you had actually ran that fast, I would have to say You did AWESOME. However since this was only a test, and not an actual emergency, I will have to leave it at awesome job.

You had me at NOT! Look at you getting all fast and stuff. If you keep this up we are going to have to vote for a new name for this blog... something like what almost had to happen to a certain "Non Runners" blog that we all frequent.

Awesome.

Thank goodness this isn't a post about splits, cause then you'd be in serious violation of blog laws.
