I'm not sure how long it has been since I posted anything here, but the correct answer is too long. There are plenty of excuses but they are all terrible. I hope to do better because I have plenty to talk about.
So the new job is going well. As it is with any new job there are some growing pains and some transitions that can take time. I feel like the grove has been hit and I'm sure my boss is happy about that. Working for al.com is a totally different experience but one that so far I really love.
My friend jokes that he is retired from triathlon... right now I feel like I am too. Never mind that I am signed up for a ironman in October. It has been all running for me so far this year. Big goals out on the horizon are the Chicago Marathon and then the Rocky Raccoon 100 Miler. Yes, 100 miles. I thought at first that would be easy (proves how crazy I am). The cold hard reality is that I will be forced to do A LOT more training runs. Truth is, I race a lot, but I don't really run a lot. If this does not change I will not run Chicago fast and I won't come close to finishing the Raccoon.
Dog training continues and we have moments of greatness but Blue is still more Bluejo than Blue Angel. Patience, right? He has lost weight and is now a trim 57lbs.
I have the greatest friends ever and this weekend we are taking an awesome trip to the Ocoee River where we will be some white water rafting, trail running, good beer drinking, super chef Charlie Elmer cooking, paintball playing, partying and then relaxing fools! So much love.
I gotta run but here is something to add to your playlist.
Music you should be listening too includes: Hey Marseilles, Griffin House, and Aloe Blacc
