Sorry. It’s been a while since I wrote anything in this space.
The problem isn’t because of a lack of ideas. Despite not
having raced in over a month, I still have at least a half dozen stories that I
want to get out there. At some point. The problem is that life just seems to be
getting in the way of me carving out the time required to write them. Between
the holidays, preparing for my clubs awards dinner, sick kids, my traveling wife,
and the work involved in getting a brand new MARATHON off the ground, it’s been a pretty busy few weeks.
The other thing that’s been taking the majority of my “free”
time is the writing and editing of my first book. The working title is: “Never Again – Adventures of a Veteran Dad
and Newbie Ultra Marathoner”. I’ve been getting some great feedback on it
so far, and I’m very excited about how it’s turning out. That being said, it’s been
a bit of a grind and it’s seemingly sucking up all my creative juices.
Anyway, the point of this post is to let everyone (who’s still
reading) know that I haven’t forgotten about you, or this blog. And, as soon as
things start loosening up, I plan to continue to post regularly. My goal, as
always, is one new story per week.
My only question is: Does this one count? :)
