Finally...a post

If you still read my blog, you've probably realized that there has not been much to read in the past 6 months. When I first started my blog, I was so excited. I like to write and still do, and love to read, and love to do that even more now. Before I even started my blog I got into reading other blogs and noticed that some people were dedicated and posted multiple times a week, while others would post a could items and then take a year or two off. That always frustrated me, especially when I could relate to what they were talking about on their blog. And now, look at what has happened to me. I've become someone who I would be frustrated with.

In the midst of moving, starting a new teaching job, trying to get healthy from a summer stress fracture, among other things, my blog fell off of my endless "to do" list. I always thought of it and read my other favorites that deal with diabetes and running, but just didn't post on mine. Hopefully I'll find more time now that spring is around the corner...kind-of. At least it is almost March, which means more races.

My last race was Labor Day weekend. I did a 5k in the city where I grew up, although originally I had intended to do the half-marathon before I got injured. My time was not great, but I was pleased since I had been running many miles. My final time was 23:03...but they did not have chip timing. So, to make myself feel better, I am going to say it was 22:59. I know I am capable of a much faster time that that. This spring I hope to run some smaller races aroudn the burbs as well as at least 2 half marathons.

One thing that makes me very happy are when people comment on my blog, so if you would like to make me happy, please leave a comment. It's good to be back.

  1. Welcome back!
    The great thing about following blogs is that new posts show up, even if the blogs been off the radar for a while!
    I think everyone understands the ever-changing priorities, so don't worry!
    Keep up the good work - even being able to finish a marathon is an accomplishment, so make sure to give credit where credit is due.
