It always seems that nearly a year goes by before I realize I haven’t written anything on this blog. Do I have nothing interesting to say? Maybe. Do I just have no motivation to write anything? That’s also possible.
But here I am, writing something. Does it mean anything? No. It’s just mid-morning on a Friday, and I’m trying out an offline WordPress writing app (MarsEdit), which is pretty fantastic.
Hrm, what’s been new with me? Not much, really. MJJ Designs has been doing great. Staying busy there, which is nice. The house is coming along. Still a long way to do with decorating – hanging up pictures, shelving, etc. But we’ll get there.
I’ve also started hitting the treadmill again. Trying to do at least two miles a day Monday – Friday. My legs burn like hell because I’m so out of shape, but I’ll get there. My goal is to run a 5k before the end of the year. I doubt I’ll actually be able to do it, but I want to try. Up until last week I’d never been able to run a mile without stopping before. So it was a nice accomplishment when I actually managed to run the entire time. It was only a 15 minute mile, not the fastest ever, but it was something I was proud of. I’m down to about 13 minutes on my mile now, and plan on trying to get up the 3 mile distance at that pace. Then if I feel adventurous I can try speeding it up a bit. My goal isn’t to break any land speed records for the 5k, just to finish it.
Plus running is getting me away from the computer for an hour a day before lunch. And probably doing a lot for my health, too. I’ve gotten overweight over the last few years, and want to get back down to my fighting weight, as they say. Not that I’ve ever fought anyone, but that’s the saying.
That’s pretty much it for me. At least for now. Oh, and if you have anything to do with it – please let the Bruins win the Stanley Cup this year. I’d appreciate it.
