Return To Higher Volume Running

Posted on 11/28/2016 to Health and Fitness

I was able to take advantage of the Thanksgiving holiday (and having extra family around) to get in some longer than normal runs this past week. I didn’t really start the week off with high mileage in mind, rather, I was just hoping to get back to some consistent training and perhaps burn a few extra calories.

I’m in the process of overhauling this site. A process that includes not only a new paint job, but also getting under the hood and swapping out the engine. All right, enough with the car metaphor. The point is things are changing.

Actually, the point of this post really isn’t to say all of this. More, it’s to wonder how in the world I got here—that is, in 6 years time, I’ve posted 6 times. That’s pretty shoddy work, if you ask me.

I’m not promising a ton of new content, because I’m not sure I have that much to say, but I will promise a semi-regular stream of new stuff.

One last thought before I go: if you’ve never read it, do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of John Adams by David McCullough.
