Life Update

I've been a bad blogger.  BAD!  So how about a general life update.

Well, that was exciting, wasn't it?

Seriously, there isn't much to report in my life right now.  I've been working at a part time job for a couple of weeks, but that appears to have ended last Wednesday.  It was a mess of a job, and I'm glad to be out of there.  I'm started a new job at a new company tomorrow.  It'll be full time, so with traffic that will cut into a lot of my free time.  And let me tell you I've gotten used to that.  And it will be a lot of tax work, which I hate.  But the pay is wonderful.

And I've been running still.  I've got three more races this year, and I know what they are.  Two are mud runs (and one is this Saturday!).  But the other is a 10K here in town.  You'd better believe I am aiming as hard as I can for that under one hour 10K time.

Because of that, I've been running 9 miles once a week.  Last week was hard, but today wasn't so bad.  One big difference was I went first thing in the morning when it was still relatively cool instead of when it was hot late in the day.  Still got hot weather wise by the end, but not as bad.  Ran it in 1:41 and an 11 minute mile average, so that sub hour 10K is going to be a hard task in a week and a half.  But both times I've come close, I was running long and training for something.  I can do it.  I know I can.  And if not, I'll just keep running and working on lowering my time and try again.

I think that's about all going on here right now.  As I said, nothing really super exciting.
