Choppy post. Writing thoughts as they come. Training is back in full effect. I say training because I think there is a difference between running and working out to be healthy and the things you do and do not do while *training* for a marathon or other big race.

It’s been a little bit since I’ve blogged. I’ve been writing a lot just not on here. Life has been a bit hectic to say the very least. There are a lot of things I want to talk about here but now is not the time. Maybe the time will come, maybe it won’t. As […]

After I wrote my running goals post for 2013 I really started to analyze my goals and why they were what they were. I think introspection on multiple levels is what I REALLY need in 2013. Here are my thoughts. random. raw. Other than my 10 mile time my goals remained the same for 2013 as they […]
