Updates on "Recent" Events

Howdy!  I'm not one for New Year's resolutions (and it's a bit late at this juncture if I were, right?) but I've resolved to maintain a more active presence on the blog, since we all tend to scatter as time goes by.  That being said...

Just a few comments to bring the previous posts up-to-date:

- Tartan Trot 5k/10k, Saturday.  It was difficult to get my arse out of bed at 5.40am to run in some pretty sad weather, but of course that just makes it all the more memorable and it was a blast.  The temperature hovered between 32 and 33 degrees with a steady drizzle, light rain, but it was a good kick-off to a fairly busy weekend.

- The Atlanta Half Marathon back in November was great!  I PR'd... largely due to the fact it was my first half, but I'll take what I can get.  I would not recommend deciding that you're going to run a half for the first time at the last minute, and then having your longest run at 8 miles with an attitude of "eh, what's another five?"  My calves were screaming around mile 10.5-11, but quieted after a brief stretch and some electrolytes.  I did have quite a few negative splits, which is nice.

- This coming weekend (February 5th-7th) is the Super Bowl, yes, but I will most likely be down at Fort Stewart returning at a time TBD Sunday.  (For those of you who don't know, my part-time "one weekend per month" job is with the Georgia National Guard as a field artillery officer.)  Hopefully I'll be back to the city in time to take part in Frayed Laces' Birthday Tri which sounds like a ridiculous amount of fun - head over to her site to read up on those details.

Stay tuned...
