Happy Easter Everyone!

Hi everyone, and sorry I haven't been sociable. It's been a very busy past 6 days, with my wife working 14 hour days and me taking care of my son's needs. At least I found time on Friday to rent a "boy toy" core aerator and aerate my entire yard. Now that was fun! I was also able to squeeze in a quick 12 mile bike ride earlier this week on Wednesday. I really feel like aerating my lawn and writing about riding my bike is not blog worthy, since my purpose in creating this blog was to write about my running adventures. BUT, since I haven't run since March 29 (Has it really been 2 weeks?), I at least wanted to type something to let you guys know I'm still around. I apologize for not commenting on your blogs. I do read them every time you post. To be completely honest, my jealousy over all of you running has gotten the best of me and helped make me anti-social. I have an appointment with the podiatrist on Tuesday. I'm going to try to get in a short run of 3 or 4 miles between now and then just to see how my heel reacts. It's definitely feeling better, but it still has a weird feeling in it. meaning I'm thinking that when I attempt to run again, it's going to say "No way." I'm in a funk...I so badly want to be able to run the Fairfield Half Marathon on June 28, and of course hopefully the NY City Marathon in November. Honestly, if those are the last 2 races I ever run, I'll be ok with it. OK, I know I just whined and complained, but I needed to. Now, everyone have a very happy Easter, and for those of you (Carlee and whoever else)on vacation this week, ENJOY! I love you guys in blogger land!! There-I feel better already...

Like one of our fellow bloggers told me, you're allowed to whine here. I know exactly how you feel.

It's fun to read about other aspects of life besides running... even if it is about aerating a lawn. LOL

Hang in there and Happy Easter to you, also!

Thanks! I plan on loving every minute of it! Happy Easter!

I was wondering if all was ok! I guess not running is not exactly okay...but hopefully things start looking up soon :)

ps: just noticed the blog name change!! Biking is also interesting, don't worry ;) As for lawn aeration...hmm...suuuure! ;)

Good luck at the podiatrist! I hope you're able to figure out what's wrong and fix it in time to still train for Fairfield and NYC!

you know right well you won't be content with either of those being your last races...

not sure when fairfield is but nyc - you still have plenty of time to build fitness/a base and then start an "official" training regime.

i can understand the 'jealousy' you feel, but you'll be back at it soon enough. continue to let it heal, hope the doc visit goes well (went well?) today and you get an idea of how long you need to rest your foot!
