Back For A Short While

Seeing as I’ve been gone from here for the last few weeks, I imagine I owe everyone who has continued to visit here an explanation.

Short answer – my schedule got too full and something had to give.  Not the best answer I suppose but it is the truth.  I’ve had a lot going on at work lately that’s required a lot of my time and by the time I get home at night I just want to take it easy and hang out with my wife and daughter.  No offense to anyone reading this but they’ll always come first.

I’d like to think that things will slow down here over the summer but I get the sense that this won’t be the case.  A lot of initiatives going on at work and our second daughter will make her debut just eight short weeks from now.  My guess is that I’ll only be updating sporadically for the near future.  For that, I apologize.  I really wish I could be on here more frequently as I really enjoy the community of people but sometimes priorities and responsibilities spin you in a different direction.

With that being said, I did want to give you all an update on what’s been going on from a fitness and training perspective since I last jumped on and, fortunately, a lot of it is good news.

Samson Stomp 5K Results

First of all, my apologies for the lack of posting yesterday and my inability to communicate the results of Sunday’s 5K sooner.  We ran in the morning and once we got home we rested for a little while.  Then it was outside for a little play time in the snow with my daughter, over to the neighbors for a play date and dinner, and then it was to bed early.  I barely even got to the computer and didn’t even watch any football either.  A lot of family time yesterday though so it was definitely a good day!

As for the race itself, it turned out to be a great day to run.  No wind, sunny, and about low 30s by the time the race kicked off.  As for the course, it was a lot wavier than I would have liked.  Lots of little ups and downs and a few 90 degree turns throughout the course.  And a LOT of people.  I think there were about 1200 people total running the race.

I finished the 5K in 26:03 unofficially.  I’m satisfied with that result…….I think.
