I had to really think about it and then I remembered the name of my blog.  It's Legs & Wings and the address is  Trust me, it took longer to remember the log-in password and longer still to figure out the updated dashboard.  

It's been years.  Truly, I have no idea where to begin (again) so I'm just going to simply announce that I am back and will be sharing where I'm at and what I hope to accomplish in the coming weeks.

First, I have committed to a personal initiative over the Easter weekend - The David Goggins 4 x 4 x 48 Challenge; run 4 miles every 4 hours for 48 hours.  I'm not raising money or awareness for anything in particular.  This will be a test of willpower and resilience.

My planned 4 mile / 6.4 km route is mix of asphalt, concrete and gravel trail.  I may, however, need to alter the 2 km trail portion. Early this morning, the distant reaches of my headlamp caught a glimpse of what I guessed was a cat running on ahead of me.  Usually, a cat will bolt off into the bush but this critter held the line some 10 meters ahead at 5:30/km pace.  It slowed.  Eventually we both stopped and then to my surprise I recognized the unmistakable white stripe and the bushy raised tail of a skunk.  

After 30 seconds of wavering and weighing my options, I turned and ran back the way I'd come, unscathed.
