Blogging is a great outlet. It is like talking to everyone and at the same time, to no one. It is a way to get everything out that you think during the day whether good or bad so that it doesn’t just sit inside you and build up. I say that to say, I really enjoy blogging. I don’t blog to get followers – though I have over 50 – thank you for following. I don’t blog to get comments – though I like the comments, suggestions and interactions. In fact most people who read my blog, I didn’t know before I started writing. I blog, as one blogger once said, because when I talk about running, most people’s eyes glaze over. Forgive me, but I blog for myself and I hope my experiences and ups and downs will help others who want to run, get in shape, have outlandish goals, what ever the situation may be. I also blog hoping that what I have gone through in loosing weight and running will help inspire others to do the same. I honestly don’t know if I have inspired anyone at all (other than my big brother), but even that doesn’t matter. No matter what happens, I’ll keep blogging… for me.
I don’t honestly know why I wrote that. It wasn’t in response to anyone or any comments I have received. It just came out.
I don’t have much to write about running today. I don’t think my “experiment” of taking Saturday off (the day before my long run) rather than Monday worked very well. It helped my long run a lot, but to keep running each day after running 15 miles on Sunday – let’s just say, isn’t easy. I think I will go back to Monday off and Saturday being a short easy day.
That’s all for today. Short and sweet. Thank you to everyone who reads this blog. It really means a lot to me. I hope it helps you in some way.
Great entry Tom. If nothing else it’s a great personal record but I’m sure you have encouraged many. For all those that follow you have to remember those who search, read and leave. You’re a great part of the running community. Keep it up 🙂
Thanks Keith. That means a lot!!! I appreciate it.
