Merry Christmas! I just looked back and realized it has been JULY since I last posted. What kind of testament is that? This year has absolutely disappeared and now I find myself sitting here at the end of it wondering wher.e it went. The last time I posted, I was beginning a marathon training program in the heat of the summer. Now I can report after struggling through a three mile run this morning I did not continue that training having abandoned it later in July.
I continue my studies at the University of Alabama as I near the half-way point of the Masters program. Taking these classes has occupied much of my time outside of work and I have used this as an excuse to put my marathon training on hold. I plan on focusing more on running this next year as my weight and mid-section have grown to a point that warrants a change. Getting out and running when it is cold and wet is hard to do. I have just got to take it a day at a time.
