First off, thank you to whoever recently purchased a pair of Skoras through my website. It dropped a few coins in the piggy bank, which will be promptly given to my DNS registrar. I don’t write here (you can stop the sentence here, considering I haven’t been regularly blogging for nearly a year) for ad revenue.
Now back to the title of this post — The Blerch.
Matthew Inman AKA The Oatmeal has one of the greatest web comics out there. Every now and again he touches on the subject of running (because despite the appearance of his comic persona, he is an avid long distance runner).
If you haven’t read his comic, The Terrible and Wonderful Reasons Why I Run Long Distances. Go Ahead and take a minute to do so. I’ll wait…
…are you back? Okay.
The Blerch has taken over me.
I have used more excuses to not run than ever before. My YTD miles are a fraction to what they have been in past years. Its not a happy place to be.
So I have a plan.
Just like this blog, I plan to keep it short in the hopes of getting back into the habit. With enough luck, I’ll be running regularly even with the life events to soon come.
Oh didn’t I mention? I’m about to be a dad again. In about 8 weeks, actually. This fall is going to be the start of a very big year. But I will leave this all for another post. So stay tuned, my 3 followers.
P.S. – The Oatmeal Has a New Book Coming
Matthew Inman is releasing a book based on the comic. It doesn’t come out until Fall, but Amazon has it available for pre-order. I can’t wait!
