Hello. Yeah, it's been awhile...not much - how 'bout you?


Running Loopy

Now that song will be stuck in my head the rest of the day...

I'm still alive.  I'm here.  I'm...well...I'm struggling.  Again.  Seems like always, lately.  A while back, my wife and I decided that we are getting divorced after 24 years of marriage.  Not really a surprise...we've been in separate bedrooms for pretty much 4 years now.  Our youngest is a junior in high school, and the other two are out of high school.  So, yeah...it's time.  I guess.  I've been working two jobs for over a year now.  I'm tired.  A lot.  But I've found my way back in to theater, which makes me very happy.  it's kind of my outlet and my release lately.  But man, it takes a lot of time.

I need to start running again.  Like...really need to.  Those that remember me might remember several years ago when I ruptured the tendon that attaches the bicep to the elbow, and the surgery to repair that, followed by my disastrous attempt at the half marathon in Cleveland the following spring.  I did one more half marathon after that, and was plagued by injuries that just wouldn't go away.  I quit.  I just couldn't do it anymore.  I was tired and beaten down.

 

I'm still tired.  I'm still beaten down.  But now I'm also almost back up to the weight I was at when I first started running, and that has me very upset and disappointed with myself.  I don't know when I'm going to start...I don't know if I'll start this month, or if I will wait and start after new years eve and become a cliche or not...actually, that's how I did it the first time, so maybe that's not a bad idea.  It worked very well last time.  

 

And I've missed all of you.  I've missed myself.  Hopefully I can find myself again.

Hey!!!  It’s nice to see you!

I’m sorry things are so rough for you right now.  Running is here when you are ready for it, whether it is tomorrow or next week or New Years.  I can’t wait to read all about it!

You forgot to mention your car troubles. Those have always made even good times seem bad, so they especially kill when the rest of your life is on a rough road (see what I did there?).

One step at a time, Loopy. We're here for you.

Right.  Luckily, we haven't had any of those lately...though I need new tires and an alignment...lol

And thanks...I appreciate it.
