A Sign

All this week I've seen a heron in the reeds. Since I have been losing a bit of steam, the sight of my totem helps.

I am not sure why I am blogging - what with the blogs I already have and the lack of time and attention I devote to them. Is there a community out here, separate from the mommy-runner and vegan blogs?

I figure I will commit for the length of my marathon-training period while I am recording my food and exercise. I will see if there is any energy left over to devote to recording my aches and frustrations, childish thrills and perverted ideas.


My Pace Gloves arrived in the mail, but are too big. Had to mail-order them and have to mail-order return them now. Crap. I was looking forward to a non-smelly option for my more public runs.

The Vibram Five Fingers are Fabulous, love the way they feel, the way they let me feel - hate the way they smell. Wore them into the shower yesterday and gave them a good shampoo. Still worried today that the stench would cause the cows to stampede.

A Horse Mid-stream

I am in the middle of week three of a 12-week program of training for my first marathon; taking up running after a 20-year hiatus, and breathing life into my yoga practice after three years of sitting at my desk and rarely leaving the house; still pursuing a Renaissance education, one obsession at a time.

This is what it's all about.
