I’m Still Around

Reading Time: 2 minutes

I miss yet don’t miss posting here regularly. I have been blogging since 2001 (well longer, but that’s how long it’s been called “blogging”, before that it was just random brain dumps posted on the web.) and my brain does think about things to post online all the time automatically since it’s been part of how I operate for so long. I always have ideas, “That would be a good post!” or “I should write about that!”

But… I’m also really busy and I’m completely perplexed how I can be more and more busy every single year. Work gets busier, parenting gets busier and then there isn’t much time left in the day. So… whatever.

I’m still running, but I’m not registered for any races. I have races I want to do, but I’m struggling to pull the trigger and actually register. Well… I am signed up for a Ragnar in July, something I really want to do but I’m also not really thinking about it because I’m just focused on getting through life to July. Getting past getting past a launch at work, getting past my husband’s busy season, getting past a family vacation… but that’s probably delusional. I’m not going to have time to just breathe then. There will always be more stuff to fill my calendar. C’est la vie.

Today I got to go to Pacific Fitness Equipment here in Vegas to try out the new ZR8 Zero Runner from Octane Fitness. I have mentioned it, I bought a ZR7 this past summer and love it. I really think it’s made me a stronger runner. But of course, the natural pattern for products, right after you buy something a new version is released, right? But it was fun to take a couple hours away from work to go check it out. I’ll get a post up about the Zerorunner and my thoughts on it in the next week or so.


I got an Eddie Bauer catalog in the mail the other day, there was a lot of cool stuff, both athletic wear and regular apparel. I’m saving some of it here, so I can remember it if they have one of those 50% off everything sales they tend to do!

They also had some cute regular everyday wear stuff too… although methinks the cardigans and pullovers probably aren’t going to be the best options for me as it’s been in the 70’s round here lately.

Full disclosure… those links are part of a widget that could potentially give me a few pennies. Click it if you want, or don’t. Basically I just think it’s a cool way to collect some items I think are worth a future look when there are big sales!
