Tuesday Ramblings

Hello, February?  Where did you go?  After coming back from a fun ING Miami Half Marathon vacation, I have been incredibly absent from my blog.  Maybe it was the ever-growing snowpack on my front lawn or the fact that I changed gyms…heck, it could even be that I just feel somewhat unmotivated.  Most likely, though, it is a combination of all of those along with the typical stress that comes with commuting two hours round trip everyday and having not yet signed up for an A race.

Regardless, I’ve been lurking.  I’ve been reading your posts, catching up on what is going in your world.  I was reminded about my own successes and remaining body issues by reading about where Patrick, over at the The Road, has come from and where he's headed.  Caratunk Girl shared her excitement about IMLP by posting the IMLP 2010 swim start video - you can find me in there somewhere - yeah, I did that.  Other Jeff at Dangle the Carrot - well, let me just say that, while my day will come, I definitely do not want to crash like that.  Also, maybe shaving isn't such a bad idea after all.  And Kovas, found at Midwest Multisport Life, provided some stellar endurance gear reviews and provided an interesting three-part guest post series with Barefoot Charlie.  This came right as I was finishing Born to Run (a fantastic book and a great read)!

There are countless others of you out there that kept me informed, up-to-date and entertained.  Thank you for helping me get through a tough five weeks.  The stress of life is not going to get any easier - especially for the next few weeks/months.  I hope to be able to report back more here later...in the interim, know that I will continue my running and swimming and tonight, tonight baby, I promise to be back on the bike.  The pain cave beckons and I must (Must.) heed its call. 

Train hard, race happy.
