Back in the Blogosphere

Hey. It's been a while. I have recently been contemplating if I should keep this blog going. I have have decided to forge ahead. I'll still continue to get the blog out there and hope to continue to raise awareness of SMA. I may have to take down the link to the Firstgiving site because I think it shuts down any day now. I'll probably just include a link to the FSMA site so people can directly donate their if they still want to. Anyway, my point to all this is that if my ramblings can lead to more awareness or funds being raised, than it's definitely worth it.

I am obviously not training for anything right now, but hopefully I can still bring you a laugh or two a couple times a week and give you a little look in to some of the random things that happen in my life. I did recently sign up to run a 10K on November the 23rd. Should be interesting. I am currently running around 25-30 miles per week, but haven't been paying too close attention to my pace. I did run 8 miles this past Sunday at a 7:53 or so. I am going to mix in a few fast miles, a few fast finishes or strides and a few Yasoo-type exercises, although I may make them 5x600 or 800m.

In the last couple of weeks, there's been some excitement in these parts. The country (at least 53% of us anyway) has celebrated a new president being elected. Here's a great time lapse video of that night's events in Grant Park.

Tiffany and I also celebrated our second wedding anniversary and my 31st birthday a couple weekends ago. Here a few pictures from the 31st birthday party, also known as the second annual toga party:





That's it for now. Please come back again soon. I'll try to make a post or two every week.

Anyways, good luck this weekend at the 10K. Crush that PR!!
