Each day I’m able to run a bit farther before my first walk break. We live at the bottom of a hill and the first three quarters of a mile of each run are pretty steep; it’s a blessing/curse. Hill work every day.
"Dude, you never blog anymore, we didn't know if you were still alive!"
Jed yelled into the phone tonight.
I told him to follow me on Instagram.
My blog turned five years old on Christmas day. So very rare that I’d let the moment pass without taking the opportunity to say something.
Then New Year’s eve passed and I didn’t even do a year roundup. And it’s not like it wasn’t a huge year. I had a book come out, I got married, I started playing golf, I decided to go back to school (I start next Monday!) and we up and moved back across the country.
The break from blogging hasn’t been on purpose. And, in fairness, Jed, I posted 10 times in December. Only one fewer than you. Granted, the quality was atrocious, but still.
2013 was also the first year since 2009 that I didn’t run a marathon. oof.
I’ve gotten a few questions over the last few weeks, so I’ll answer them here:
School: Air Traffic Control at Green River Community College in Auburn, WA. GO GATORS! So stoked. Brooke tells me my even keeled demeanor (or “lack of emotion,” as she put it) will suit me well.
It’s an 18-month program. If you know any air traffic controllers, tell them to email me. I’d love to talk to them.
Thanks for the emails welcoming us to Tacoma. Apparently Tacoma is just our technical address. For all intents and purposes we live in Federal Way. What is there to do in Federal Way? So far all we have been acquainted with is the Target (and a couple golf courses).
All this to say, Happy New Year. Washington is so good. Life is so good.
Here’s to a great year.
More blogging here at Ben Does Life this year probably.
