Bad, Bad, Blogger!

One of the big disadvantages about working in technology is that I never really want to be on the computer anymore on the weekends.

Good excuse, huh!

I've been fine, although very burned out from work.

I'm still pursuing the simple things in life, mainly running, knitting, coffee and a little beer drinking. I'm trying to keep my daughter focused on her upcoming senior year of high school....

Of course I flaked on even signing up for the SF 1/2 marathon. I've been running, but not very long and not pushing it at all.

I believe I might have a race to do in the Fall. My daughter needs PE credits to graduate and she doesn't like the idea of taking PE in her senior year so we're going to talk to her counselor about her running a 1/2 marathon instead. I think it's a good idea to keep us both motivated.

Today is the Vineman
I'm volunteering tonight during the marathon part. I watched it last year, and want to participate somehow in this event.

Hope you are all doing well.

Welcome back!

Thanks for your nice comment on my final blog post.  Your support has been appreciated.

I'll still stop by your blog from time to time to see how you are doing.  Best of luck in your training this year!

(Now tell your daughter to get off her butt and run a marathon with you!)

BTW, I had to take PE in my senior year when I moved to a new school. It sucked, but I had a lot of fun!

Best way to get out of senior year PE is to contract a really horrible case of mono and not find out till it spreads to your liver.

Oh wait, I would actually wish that on anyone (talk about a nightmare).

Glad to see you're back. If daughter chickie hasn't done any training, maybe we can work something out so we both get off our butts and try to work towards that 1/2 marathon?

I sometimes wonder how it is to volunteer for one of these races. We could not run them without someone being out there for us.

I hope you had fun volunteering for the Vineman. It's hard work, but also fun. I need to volunteer at races more.
