Motivation & Priorities

One of my struggles in the past few years has been a complete lack of desire and motivation to run (more specifically, train)

One of the sports I really enjoy outside of running is football.  I love this time of year with college & pro.  I spent 4 years at Northwestern University watching a team lose, and 3 years was spent in the marching band forced to watch them lose.

I gained a strange love for college ball during those years, and I still carry it today.

I also used to really enjoy motivational speaking and books.  I was one of those guys who would find a way to find something good in all of the bad which can happen around you.  This goes pretty deep into my psyche and childhood.  That is for another day.

This summer, I was commenting about some funny quotes Herm Edwards had said.  In my search to find his "don't press send" quote, I found this gem.

If you need to get your house in order, your mind in order, your life in order, watch this.

Testing..... 1, 2, 3

Just curious if anybody reads this anymore or is interested in it going active again.

I stepped away for a while because.....

A - I just could not put the pieces together & did not want this to be a pity party blog
B - I lost my desire to be a runner..... for a while, at least
C - Had some personal issues I just did not want to be public about

Reasons for contemplation on getting the blog active again

A - After spending this weekend at the Superior Trail Races (volunteering), I am reminded of what this sport is about.... And I am still not sure I can explain it.
B - I am disappointed in where I have let myself get with diet and exercise
C - I am not ready to hang it up yet

So that is what the year and a half (okay, almost 2) break was about.

Stay tuned?
