Suddenly Spring

Winter has drifted by without much ceremony.  March will be here in a few days and the switch back to Daylight Savings Time.  That's the turning point for me.  

Been pulled away from running on a regular basis so I think I will shelf my spring marathon plan for now.  Too many balls in the air at the moment.  Regards to all those who are better organized than I am.  

I see dozens of committed runners everyday dutifully making the rounds.  I wish I were among them.

Take care.

Time has a way of sneaking past me even when I have my eye on it. I'm getting old. Sign of the times.

Running is coming along, albeit, slowly. I will go out again in the morning ahead of the sunrise for a light 5K. Nothing too hard - but like old times. Good times, to be sure. Out early and back early so my wife can get her run in before we wake the children. It's the only time we have.

I have so many good memories and so many daily blessings. My life is full and overflowing with laughter, challenges, music, friends and kids...and a whole lot of work. Not much time for running.

I started this running blog several years ago to document my progress towards a marathon. It seems like forever ago and it seems like just yesterday.  I do not have a formal plan in place but I would like to run another marathon in the spring of 2012.

It's taken me a while to get back and I've learned so much about myself in the time away from the road. Mainly, how I need to get out every morning and run.  Glad to be back.

Back On My Feet

I have started running again. I'm slow but determined to carry on through the fall and winter months. So much to say. Here's a few photos to reveal part of the story.

Stepped out for a bit. Working a new job has changed everything on every level...and it's all very good. Cheers.

Quietly Busy

Still busy as a beaver. Thought I'd add this link for you - the kids did a concert the other night in Lunenburg - at the old Lunenburg Academy (National Historic Site).

Slow Cooking Cover features two of my boys - Jon on Bass (left) and Chris plays Lead Guitar (right).

Merry Christmas all!

Back Again

Wow, I've been away a long time and didn't even know it. Time has a way of slipping through the fingers. You can't hold it. You can't claim it. You can't even manufacture it. I've always struggled with that. I don't think that I over-commit. I just agree to take on a lot of stuff. No regrets.

Fall has really settled in now that it is November. Not my favourite month - but one of those transitional months here in the Maritimes - part fall, part winter....mostly just uncomfortable. November is like a wasteland...grey/brown. The land lays bare waiting for snow. Waiting to sleep.

Running is on hold. I've got issues with my left hip that bothers me right down to the ankle. I need to get crunched at the chiropractor but have been waiting for it to clear. Feels like a pinched nerve or something. I think it happened during some touch football back in September. It's naggy.

I'm walking to and from work...about 4-5K each way. Not too difficult at all - in fact, I love the time alone and appreciate the buffer between home/work and work/home. It gives me a chance to breathe.

Bottom line is that I'm still a busy beaver. I've got lots of irons in the fire which I won't discuss here and now. Life is good, the kids and V are great. No flu. No problems. All the best you guys.

Take care. I'll be back soon.
