Running for enjoyment
Thursday, February 06, 2014      11 comments

If you had asked me 3 years ago if I'd be titling a blog called "Running for enjoyment", i'd have called you crazy (or worse!). Back then, I could not even imagine running at all, let alone for enjoyment! But that is the beauty of time - thing... Read more
That was a LONG 31 days!

I don't know about you all, but that sure did seem like a LONG January to me! Work, cold weather, snow, short daytime, you name it! It'll be nice to flip the calendar tomorrow and a short 28 day month! And that much closer to spring! ... Read more

OK, so not as bad as in the midwest, nor nor as scary as what the south is dealing with (snow with no equipment to clean it off in many places), but doesn't mean I have to be happy with these teens for temps or wind chill close to zero! At leas... Read more

So, everything is OK on the job front. There was never an issue of "do I have a job?" more along the lines of "is this the kind of work I want to be doing?" (at least some parts of my job), but my manager and I had a very nice chat, came up wit... Read more

Had a very nice conversation with an old work friend whom I've stayed in touch with over the years even though we have not worked together directly for nearly 10 years. Kinda good in that if we are looking for advice from the other, it is not w... Read more

Since my mom passed away two years ago on this date, 12/31 has become somewhat of a melancholy day for me. Don't get me wrong -- I know my mom is in a MUCH better place, but being human I can't help but miss her. She did so much for me -- all ... Read more

Amazing to think we've been home one week from what was one of the best vacations ever! 10 days and 9 nights at Sandals Grande Riviera in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. Great food, great drinks, the staff was simply amazing, our butlers outstanding. The... Read more

Isn't it funny how weird thoughts hit...I was doing some work planning when it hit me how busy it will be between now and 01/01/2014. Of course the usual holiday "stuff": family get-togethers, shopping, decorating, etc. Then add in a much nee... Read more

If you look at my SparkPage, you'll probably notice pictures and references to greyhounds. My wife and I have rescued racing greyhounds since 2004, and 5 of them have changed our lives in ways we can't even begin to describe. We currently have... Read more
Very good 5K race today
Saturday, November 23, 2013      8 comments

I've been running for two years now, and a few things I've figured out: - I prefer warm weather over cold for running - I don't like wind when I am running! - I am amazed just how warm I do get when I am running, even on a cold day! ... Read more

7 mile run on Sunday. Longest. Run. EVER!
Monday, November 11, 2013      9 comments

Earlier last week, I saw on my Galloway Easy 5K app a 7 mile run coming up, the longest training run on the app, so given that I had never run that distance before, I planned to do it on Sunday when I had the time to enjoy it and not have to rus... Read more

What a busy week!! Good news is the week is flying! Bad news is that it seems like I'm getting a lot of nothing done! Oh well! As long as I get through to tomorrow at 5PM, I'll have a relatively quiet weekend to get caught up! C'mon Frid... Read more
