Aban-don : to leave and never return to
So, technically I haven't abandoned my blog. Thanks Websters for clarifying that and clearing any guilt that might have been lingering.
Since I'm fairly sure that everyone is gone, and thus am going to just be brief and lure anyone who might be on the fence back with this...
My friend Michael says I should start blogging again.
She has a point. I mean, I'm still running and racing. After last years Ironman finish my perspective has changed on a lot of things. Maybe that's normal, maybe not (who needs normal?). The other night I was staring at my medals, cause I got some new ones this year and a supah new fancy place to hang them all and I never looked at any of them and thought about PR's or any of that. Sort of a "look what I've done! I was healthy enough to run all those things and ran many of them with friends!"
In less than two weeks I'll board a plane and head to NYC for what I'm kinda thinking will be my last marathon for quite some time. And for once, I'm not nervous and all I can think about is having a good time. In years past I was a hot mess about making time goals. Amazing I wasn't on ulcer meds. Not that I didn't have fun in those but.....yeah, maybe they weren't as fun as they could be, or as I see them now.
I've spent the bulk of my time on Trip Advisor, scoping out what I wanna see on my trip to the city. This'll be roughly my 15th time there, maybe more, maybe less, just shooting from the hip but towards the top of my list of things I haven't seen is this....
I'm a closet hippie.
So welcome back. Can I get a head count. All present say "I".
