Last Trek the Trace

We were able to attend the last Trek the Trace event of the summer. It was held at the USM Longleaf Trace Station. This run entailed predetermining your end time for 2 miles. You could not use your watch (of course) and should not go over the time you estimated. It did not matter who crossed the finish line first only who came the closest to their guessed time. You were to shoot for a Personal Record time on this course. I have been using my daily training course as my best time but in this case, but this was a documented course time. My time was 17:24 with a pace of 8:41 per mile. Now, I have a "real" time to start from. I came in 26 seconds better than my guess and Kent came in 35 seconds better. It was good for both of us.

Our faithful race recorder: Nestor, doing a fantastic job!

After the run we enjoyed great food. I'm glad you couldn't see our plates!!

Blogging Without Obligation

After coming across what seemed to be the 4000th or so post on someone’s blog starting with “I’m sorry I haven’t posted in awhile.” I decided it is time to rethink what makes a good blog and the expectations that have come to be part of it. I am thinking that no one should utter those words again . . .and with that thought I give you Blogging Without Obligation. •Because you shouldn’t have to look at your blog like it is a treadmill. •Because its okay to just say what you have to say. If that makes for a long post, fine. Short post, fine. Frequent post, fine. Infrequent post, fine. •Because its okay to not always be enthralled with the sound of your own typing. •Because sometimes less is more. •Because only blogging when you feel truly inspired keeps up the integrity of your blog. •Because they are probably not going to inscribe your stat, link and comment numbers on your tombstone. •Because for most of us blogging is just a hobby. A way to express yourself and connect with others. You should not have to apologize for lapses in posts. Just take a step back and enjoy life, not everything you do has to be “bloggable”. •Because if you blog without obligation you will naturally keep your blog around longer, because it won’t be a chore. Plus, just think you will be doing your part to eradicate post pollution. One post at a time. . .
