No Going Back

I don’t know what to say, I’m almost a little misty over this post. I started following Aaron (Chatter) from the beginning. This is his “woohoo! I made it” post. Give the brother a hand.

Now and Then.  The left picture was from my last 5k race and the one on the right is from my first 5k race in October. Left picture was from a mid season 5k in 2013 and the Right picture was from my first 5k  in October of 2012

If you have not noticed I have been pretty absent lately.  Since I got back from Ragnar Trails Atlanta (details here) I just have not felt like writing.  Of course I could blame fatigue or writers block or being busy, but to be honest I have no clue why I have been so complacent on this blog and commenting on posts lately.  Maybe its tied into post Ragnar depression or linked to exhaustion resulting from the intensity of my training routine.

Victorious! Ragnar Trails Atlanta was one of the pinnacle running experiences of my short athletic career.  I shared this adventure with seven complete stranger and I  even a few weeks later feel attached to them.

National “Take Your Child to Work Day”… They Picked a Good One

Today is National Take Your Child to Work Day and they picked a good one. My daughters get to go with me to the Trademark attorney’s office followed by heading to my office to complete a project that’s due today. From there we’ll head out to lunch and then back to the office to start on another project that’s due tomorrow – a rain day.

I’m of two minds on NTYCTW day.  On one hand, it’s a serious pain in my butt having to herd the kids around and to work my schedule around having them.  On the other hand, once a year my daughters get to see that what their dad does isn’t simply a walk in the park.  In the end the benefit outweighs the trouble as they get to see that I have to work really hard to get my few easy perks, like heading home a little early on a nice afternoon to go for a bike ride before taking the girls to swim practice.  In fact, it’s 6 am and I’ve already been on the computer for two hours now.  Five minutes catching up on comments for the blog that came in overnight, twenty five minutes catching up on new posts and ten minutes to write this one.  The other hour and twenty has been spent working on, well, work.

Love to spend more time pontificating, but it’s time to get ready to go get ’em.

Work hard.  Play harder.
