  1. Hi All! I don't want to see this place go away, and I know that requires contributing more regularly. Thus, New Year's Resolution #1 - (setting an achievable goal) - post something (anything - even if it is to check in with a "no runs" update) at least twice a month. I'm hoping #1 helps with accountability for #2 - Run consistently. Now for the title of this post- I can never run well in December. It is a fact that I know exists, and I don't try to do anything about. In a typical year, I train through the fall and then Thanksgiving hits like a wall and I stop pretty much any

  2. As much as I love working from home, there was a part of me that struggled through 2020, like many. Covid-19 sucked, but I got over it, mostly. I still seem to be having some issues.

  5. I kept running in December, but completely quit my job search (at least I am employed, but I need a career change...). Something had to give. But I spent a solid half hour (ok, not great, but I worked a full day from home too) working on it. Small bites...so the 2 mile goal sounds like a great plan to me.

  6. Congratulations on the new degree. I remember when you started it and felt maybe you couldn't do it. But you just put your head down and did the work - and now you're done! I'm sure it will be a net-positive for your life - regardless of what happens with work.
