My blogging has been sparse this month. Sorry about that. My only excuse is that the last three months of the year are my favorite so I have been trying to enjoy October as much as possible before it’s over. But I haven’t really succeeded because I’ve been working a lot too. That doesn’t exactly lend itself to having fun. These last 31 days have been incredibly busy! I mostly blame myself for that. I signed up for an insane number of races this month (as well as in November and December, but that’s a story for another time) because I wanted to run as much as possible as soon as the seemingly endless summer was over. Granted, “fall” is just barely arriving here in Los Angeles now. The Long Beach half marathon on October 11th was miserably hot. I’ll write another post about that later. For a couple of reasons (but mostly laziness) I’ve been saving a lot of the topics I want to blog about for November so I can attempt National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo). It’s not going to be easy, but I will try to update my webpage every day in November. Last year was a miserable failure so we’ll see if I can redeem myself in 2015. Until then I’m going to do my best to enjoy what’s left of October. Happy Halloween everyone!
