I was wondering what the small pang in my heart has been over the last couple of weeks and I've eventually realised what it is: It has been an absolute age since I've posted here. This is a situation I intend to rectify, so for now, a very brief bloggy update:
- I'm wondering whether to drop the 'how many weeks I've been trying to be a runner for' titling of my blogs, since after my twenty weeks in the 'wilderness' of not-blogging, I have returned actually considering myself a proper Runner. I never, ever thought we'd see the day, but it has come!
- I've run a load. Since I last spoke to you all after my Barnstaple-to-Bristol attempt, I've been racing, training and ENJOYING. I'll save the teetering Zen-ness here for a later post :)
- In the words of El Gavilan, I think I've finally, truly begun to 'inspire to inspire' - at least two people have taken the plunge into running as a direct result of my own efforts and a few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of running ten hilly, sweaty, brutal miles with them as a way to celebrate Christmas. For fun.
- I've started working on something... else regarding my running. I won't be able to keep it to myself for too long as it is, so I'll at least savour my restraint for now.
So, as I say, I'll keep this brief. I'm not dead, I'm running more than ever and I'll write something proper and more meaningful soon. In the meantime, I look forward to going over all of your posts that I've missed :)
