Tuesday, March 09, 2010


Not much is going on lately, just mourning the passing of another ski season. I tried to get out one last time on Sunday, but conditions were slushy and slow. My transition back into a runner is not going very well either. I thought by running more in December and January, compared to last year, I’d be better off in March. However, running only 61 miles in February caught up with me and I feel like a newbie all over again. Catching my first cold of the winter hasn’t helped either.

While I struggle to get healthy, rekindle my love of running, and figure out a plan for 2010, I suggest you go and read about someone who has all those things figured out.

In other news, I did not apply for that LTF job that I mentioned in my last post. Actually, this opening looks even more appealing – even though I don’t “understand the technical aspects of performance xc skis” or have “significant xc ski race and/or ski sales experience.” Other than that, it sounds good. I should mention that I’m happy with my current job. However, it probably wouldn’t hurt to update my resume, since it’s been 5 years.

I love your QOD. It is exactly how I feel about running and it's hard to explain the feeling to non-runners. It sums it up very well. Good luck with your running transition- I bet you will feel like your old self again soon, especially when all of this snow is gone.
