Oct. 8 already?

Dang. How the time marches on. I thought for sure I had published my last post only a few days ago, not eight.

I guess the main purpose of this entry was to ensure you that I do have a substantial blog brewing. I think maybe it’s so broad in its potential scope that I’m kinda daunted by the prospect of writing it… and I’ll need considerable time to do so. Hopefully that can happen on Thursday, after my running.

Speaking of running, I think I mentioned a while back that I’m training for my second half marathon, which will be Oct. 25 on Mackinac Island. I’m pretty excited about it. The training is going really well. After I got past a somewhat-rough start and established a good base (which I guess you’re technically supposed to do before starting to train…), I’ve been able to train at a considerably higher intensity than last time. So, I’m hoping this will enable me to beat my PB by about 5 minutes and knock my pace down to under 8:00/mile–even if Mackinac has a lot more hills to climb than the roads of Jackson County.

And one more thing while I’m at it: Heather was a bit disappointed when I told her I changed the subtitle of my blog. She was rather fond of “Wading through life is great–until an 80′ tidal wave smacks you in the face”. Any thoughts on that one vs. my current subtitle, which, if you haven’t noticed, now reads: “The season of wading is over; now’s the time for full immersion”?
