Hey everyone, long time no post. So for those of you that don’t keep up with my podcast, Geeks in Running Shoes, I am still running. In fact, I’m less than 48 hours away from my second half marathon. My cohost/brother-in-law, Raymond and I will be running the St. Louis Frostbite Half Marathon. True to the name, it will be wicked cold on Saturday, not to mention the 8-12″ of snow on the ground in St. Louis right now. Why do a half marathon in the winter in the midwest? Good fricking question! Saturday is not only the race, but also my 30th birthday! Woohoo! So my plan is to run the race at 9am, be at McGurk’s Irish Pub at noon, nap by 2pm, and start partying around 6pm. We shall see how that works out.
I’m going to try to be more active on my blog again. I think that it really helped me stay honest with my eating habits and running. Frankly, the reason I stopped blogging so much is because the podcast was a weekly outlet to talk about my life. That helps (somewhat) with keeping me honest with my running, but I need to get back on the wagon with my healthy eating. The last few weeks I have been doing better, but I’m still up in weight since my last half marathon in September. My race weight was 192. Currently, I’m hovering around 202-205, which I don’t think is horrible. I can do better, though. So, I’m just trying to make the best choices nutrition-wise during the day. I’m really going to try to blog more often, so hopefully, you guys will come along on the continuation of my journey.
