I didn't get in all the runs I had planned for this week due to some flu like symptoms I've been enjoying. I ran anyway on Thursday but I'm not sure that did me a lot of good based on how I'm feeling today. I'm glad the weekend is here so I can rest up and get better. The big development this week is my podcast is now up on itunes. I must admit that if I didn't have Nigel's help I would have been loster than last years easter egg. His guide and tips available on his website are great. I'm using Audacity for editing and it took awhile to get a handle on that but I'm making progress. I don't think that with everything else going on in my life that I will be able to do more than one episode every two weeks. Between a full time job, pursuing an education in boat design, running, and spending quality time with my wife there isn't a whole lot left. I'm also sure, though, that the next episode won't take as long in "post production".
As a retired Marine aviator, running has been a part of my life for... well, pretty much my whole life. In the Corps, I ran because I had to stay in shape as part of the job. Now, I run because I want to. I signed up for my first half marathon just before I got out of the service as a way to make sure that I kept pt'ing, even though I no longer "had" to. But I soon discovered that I really enjoyed distance running. I started this blog on a whim to see if it would be fun to keep a running (sorry) dialog on the training and events I participate in, as well as share other interests.
