I’ve decided it’s high time I resurrect this blog. I miss writing, and feel guilty anytime I see the WordPress app on my phone. Who avoids an app? Me. I do. Weird.
Anyway, this is either the best or worst time ever to make a promise to start writing regularly again. My personal and professional lives are going through a major state of flux/change. I’m essentially working 2 jobs (regular job and also teaching), trying to apply to grad schools, and stay sane. So what do I decide to do? Re-up my blog, of course.
Here’s the thing, though. Writing has always helped me to stay centered, focused and accountable. I haven’t been writing, and yes, my focus has been hazy. Something else that keeps me centered and focused? Running. So yea, I’m doing more of that, too. In fact, that plays into a reason why I’m re-starting the blog. I’ve decided to maximize the accountability blogging brings me by running another marathon. Wha-what?!
Now yes, I know I said I was never going to run another marathon, but time heals all wounds, right? The goal race is the Carmel, Indiana Marathon on April 16, 2016. Yes, it’s a way off. I have not just a training plan, but a base-building plan to get my fitness back up.
I am hoping that starting the blog back up at the same time will keep me accountable, not just for my running, but as a reminder to document, and participate in more of the activities that I enjoy. This includes more book reviews, and a new-found love: Mindfulness meditation.
And now we are off – back on another journey! I hope you’ll join me!
