When I began this blog back in 2012 my goal was simply to provide me a means to keep my self accountable. At the start of the year I weighed close to 365 and had numerous health issues of notable concern. As I trained for my first 5k and eventually triathlons this blog transformed into a means to share my journey. That was over three years ago, almost four at this point and things have changed. I have now not only ran a 5k and finished a triathlon bu have finished a wide range of races and distances. Along the way I have shared this story, my achievements and frustrations, documenting my growth and development as an armature athlete. During this journey there have been a few periods where my blog went silent, but rarely did these periods last more than a few weeks.
This current silence has lasted longer than usual. I recently started a new job while concurrently I began training for my first 50 mile point to point race (I ran 55 miles in a 24 hour race, a totally different experience as that involved running a fixed mileage loop over a fairly flat course). With a very slim window of available extra time the blog unfortunately has lied dormant for the last two months.
Now that I have been at my new job a bit and I have adjusted to the heavy training schedule involved in preparing for my first 50 miler I would like to continue to share my journey and my story and hopefully some of my old readers will return and will continue to follow along again. I regret I have neglected this blog as sharing my experiences with my WordPress blog community has been a great joy. So hopefully I will be back to publishing frequently. I look forward to continuing to share my adventure and story and I hope I can maintain some sort of frequency moving forward. It is time to start this conversation again and I hope you will enjoy reading and following along as I attempt new physical pursuits. I am glad to be back and sharing.
Til next time.
