In the past ten years I have been up (240) and down (135) the scale time and again. This time I am on the 'up' side of the scale. I want to loose the weight. I figure the humiliation of putting this on the internet and the friends that I have told of this to hold me accountable just might make this happen. It is going to take a lot of encouragement and support. Not to mention the hard work on my part. Follow my struggle here.

when life gets in the way of fun

In the past few months I have been laid off. Unemployed, and since found a job, temp to hire. A few weeks ago things became apparent that I would be brought on full time. In this time I dug in deeper. Took on more responsibility and worked twice as hard. As a result the hours grew longer and inched out things like blogging.

My Internet time has been crowded at best. But my running time has not suffered. I refuse to let it.

Admittedly this is one of my pet peeves. When someone tells me they don't have the time to take care of themselves. If you have time to watch TV, play a video game, read a book, or just go shopping for fun you have time. You just choose not to allocate that time for your health. When I say health I mean both mental and physical.

There will always be road blocks - the key is in finding that work around and prioritizing them.

As of late I have been running on Sundays with the TATUR's. The best part about this is that my shins do not scream at me like they do on pavement. Well that and all my crazy running friends that expect me to keep coming back.

Here are a few photos from recent TATUR events to give you a idea of what I mean (special thanks to TZ, Brian, Catherine, and Susan for the blatant stealing of photos).

I still love and prefer road running but I love my TATUR time too. I firmly believe that the trail running is helping my road running. 
Get out of the house and get moving - yes I wake up early on the weekend. Would I trade it for sleeping in and laying about - hell no.
