I started this blog, a year ago, to keep myself accountable.
I was running and I wanted to get better. I wanted to get stronger, eat healthier.
I've done most of those. I'm a little stronger, a little healthier, I've dropped some weight which I think made me run a little bit faster.
I'm also pissed. I'm pissed at just about the whole wide world and it's helping my pound some pretty angry miles. The angrier the miles the quicker I get.
I've changed jobs, had health trouble (over, thank goodness) and I'm about to be officially 'unmarried'. For lack of a better word. Or at least any other word I'm willing to use.
This year, instead of the Detroit Free Press International Half-Marathon I am going to run the marathon. Galloway, of course, so I can walk a bit. I'm feeling quite good about my training this time around and I am exceptionally motivated to stick to it.
I am nervous, and still excited. And now I need to keep myself more accountable than ever.
