This won't be an exceedingly long blog entry, but I just wanted to kind of announce my return and talk about where I've been.
The last few months have been kind of a lost summer for me. I stopped eating right - in fact, I started actively eating wrong - I stopped exercising and, SURPRISE!, I gained weight. A lot of weight. 35 pounds, in fact. I've got a pretty amazing ability to gain and lose weight really quickly. Usually, that's been a bad thing, because most of my life has been spent gaining weight. Lately, it's been bad again.
But fear not! I'm back on the wagon and getting back in shape. I'm almost two weeks into my restart and it's not taking me nearly as long to catch up as I'd thought, which is a relief. I've run a 10K (albeit REALLY slowly) and I've got my 3-mile pace back under 10 minutes, though it's just killer. But it's time to get back where I was. I ran a half-marathon in March, damn it. Speaking of the M-word, I've got plans for three half-marathons and a full marathon just in the next 10 months, because I'm a masochist. Still, I went from never running more than a mile in my life to running a half-marathon in less than four months, so I think I can hack it.
I'll write another blog post soon, but for now, I just want to say that I love youse guys and I've missed you and it's great to be back!
