Our mascot is Wu-Shock, and our team name is the Shockers. A few years back, we adopted a little unofficial hand gesture, called "The Shocker", that independently became popular in some subculture out there. Every time we beat a team, we say that we gave them The Shocker. If you really want to know what The Shocker is and are in the mood for something rated R, then listen to one of these songs for an explanation: The Shocker Song, or The Shocker Song 2
Now, back to my running. It feels like I've been kind of a blog slacker these last couple weeks, not writing any posts, but I either had writer's block, or I just didn't have anything interesting to pass on. Some might argue, that's always the case with me.

The weekend after that, I will run the Wichita Half Marathon which I should PR in. To get ready for both these races, I have cut back from my marathon training mileage, and tried to add in some quality speed work. I also was able to get in about 40 minutes on the stationary bike this week, which is fewer than planned, but it was due to sleeping in too much.
