I'm still running ...
Boy! Time slips by when you have a lot of projects underway! It’s time for a Running Granny update. Yes, I have been running, but I am in that lull between Cross Country season and Race Season. Cold weather can be a deterrent, but that’s not my excuse. I usually don more clothes and brave the cold. It’s all the other distractions that make me struggle. The Christmas season is always a distraction – busy, busy, busy! I kept running, mostly out of fear that I would expand like a balloon what with all the reasons to celebrate with food! I’ve been writing and editing and publishing. Finally! I took a little trip to the tropics. You can get a brief overview with photos HERE. While in Maui I found time for two runs. I even used MapMyRun just to prove I was there. We also managed to work in a nice hike to this waterfall. Beautiful!
Now I am back in the saddle again, as the old cowboy sang - still running, hoping to be skiing, marketing this new book, and gearing up to write the next one. Readers of this blog might look forward to it. I haven’t determined a title yet, but runners will be able to relate and I hope that non-runners will enjoy it, too. I am hoping that it will inspire folks to push through pain a little more and learn from the uncomfortable experiences they have already endured. I will keep you all posted on the progress.
In the meantime, Happy Running!
