Soooo … I’ve gotten a little behind.

Marathon training was more stressful than I thought. I wasn’t mentally prepared for the long runs or increased time demands for training. Instead of taking a short pause to reflect on what was happening I more or less shut down. My training slacked off after the 16 miler and blogging just stopped after week 2.

But, I finished the race – made it across the finish well within the time limit and got my medal. I evan ran a relay race only a few weeks later. My miles have waxed and waned since then, but my desire to blog never truly went away.

I read a great book over the weekend – Better Than Before by Gretchen Rubin – that really helped me to stop and see how my actions were derailing my goals. I’ve had a super long weekend and a few extra days off work to refocus – and figured – there’s no better day than TODAY to start over.

So here’s to blogging regularly again – to training again – and to actually reaching the goals that I set.
