I am not done blogging, just slowing down.

This is an update to my post this morning. I am not done blogging, I am just taking a mental break. I will probably still post and will comment on other blogs, but I am just slowing down the reading of blogs. If you are on my blog roll, I will still be visiting. I follow way too many blogs and need to narrow that down. Blogging is a very addicting thing and I feel like sometimes I run more so that I can post about my runs and that we are always trying to compete with other's times and workouts. This is obviously not a safe thing to do as we obviously need a break at times and we all have different lives to plan our runs around. Post-marathon blues is so not fun and leaves you with too much time to over-think things. I am really looking forward to my next marathon and look forward to sharing with you all how I plan to get there, once I figure out how that is.

I have a new opportunity that came to me today that I am looking forward to sharing with you in the future. I think the opportunity came at the right time as good news is always a good thing when you are feeling down. Now my feet just need to cooperate with me and I can get back to what I enjoy most and that is training. Whoever said training for marathons is the hard part wasn't speaking the truth. Tapering and recovering is by far the hardest thing to do in my opinion. I will take 70 mile weeks any day over a 10 mile week.
