This weekend, I ran the Austin Marathon. While in Austin, I stayed with my old blog buddy Chia. Turns out, she abandoned her blog too – which made me feel a tad bit better for not posting for so long (I felt really guilty, especially after all the comments wondering where I was… but just couldn’t bring myself to post). However, it also made me realize how much I missed all of you, and really gave me a kick in the pants to get back to posting.
The short story is, things have been a bit of a mess for the last few months. It’s been throwing me into a depression (to the point where I was skipping out on my obligations to stay in bed and cry and be miserable), but now I’m starting to turn things around and hopefully get better. I’m very sorry to all of you who were upset/worried that I disappeared without a trace. I know it wasn’t fair, but like everything else I’m trying to fix in my life, all I can do is apologize and promise to try harder. Forgive me, please?
In good news, despite my depression, I’ve been keeping up with marathons, and am still on track to set the world record this year (check out my upcoming races to join me in the final countdown). The last few races weren’t necessarily bright and shiny affairs (several of them involved a lot of tears along the way), but I did complete them, and I even sometimes started writing some race reports for them. I’m going to start posting on a more regular basis, but as for the race reports, I’ll get them up when I can. My plan is to backdate them so they show up in the order I actually ran them, but I’ll put a link in the current post so you don’t have to constantly go through the old posts to see if I added something new.
