Trips and Stumbles

Despite my sprained ankle less than two weeks from my first marathon, I’m getting more and more excited about the race.

It’s cold out there. And some photos.

It was 15 degrees with 15mph winds at 6 a.m. this morning and yet I still went out on a run. At this point I’m not going to let the weather keep me from running.

Though it was cold, I was somewhat ready for it. I had tights, shorts, two polyester shirts, a wool cycling jersey, a cotton long sleeved shirt, a jacket, thin gloves and socks over those gloves, and a hat on.

I’m not used to this kind of cold, we don’t normally get temperatures like this in Georgia. But I’ve committed to running through the winter, and I am really glad I’ve stuck to it. I feel so much better knowing I have the discipline to run in weather like this, and I know I’m building mental and physical toughness because of it.

Anyways, I wish I had some more money for a real set of winter running gear, but that’s just how it goes sometimes. Plus this won’t last a long time. Might as well wait and spend the money on something I’ll use more.

Running and Data

This never gets old.

Unless something has gone terribly wrong, I should currently be running the Soldier Half Marathon in Columbus, Georgia. I figure this is as good a time as any to talk about how I keep track of my running. Or something like that.

Another Weekend, More Bad Weather?

It looks like we might be getting more rain/ice/sleet/snow this weekend. I’m hoping to go back to Georgia to see my family, but might have to postpone the trip.

In other news, I’m working on a little project that I’m not letting anyone know about just yet. It’s nothing big, but I’ve been meaning to do this for a few years now, so I’m glad I’m working on it.

Been Busy

It’s been an interesting week or so. I’ve been working on designing a website with about a week turnaround. That’s the design up there. It needs a lot of work but I’m not worrying about it too much since I don’t have much of a timeline to work on it.

I will be driving down to Jacksonville Beach this weekend to attend my Uncle Terry’s memorial service. I’ll probably spend about 14 hours in the car. It’ll be good to see my family and to hear stories about him.

If I didn’t have so much to do, I’d write more. There’ll be another entry tomorrow seeing as it’s been 6 days since the last.
