Back... FINALLY!

Wow. What a crazy month or two it's been.

When I last posted, (and ran) I had just returned from a few weeks fishing with friends and family in Canada. When I returned, we bought our first home. GULP.

I spent the first three weeks of our home ownership doing work on the house. We had a cousin come out from Wisconsin to help me. We put in hardwood floors, I redid the kitchen cabinets, we installed a gas fireplace, and redid the garage. In addition to all of that, we completely repainted the interior. Needless to say, I didn't have a heck of a lot of time to run. I was putting in 10 hour days on the house, 7 days a week and threw a bit of auditioning in there as well.

Today was the first run I've gone on in well over a month. It felt great to get out there, though I most certainly did not feel good. I am most assuredly out of shape. I'm just glad to be getting back out there. I think I will try and find a half marathon to train for some time this fall.

Wow - Congratulations! What an exciting time for you and your wife and what a boatload of work you accomplished! I am so happy for you. According to Matt, this last month was a rough one for running due to high temps and smoke from the fire. Apparently you weren't missing much by not lacing up. Enjoy your new digs!

Thanks for the well wishes, Ruth. you are right about the weather being rough out here. It's much better now, but it was nasty for quite a while.
