Not much to say as of late. I’ve been busy with work, training, and personal development. I earned my Project Management Professional credential last month. Yes, I’m still a software architect, but project management has a lot of overlap in my field so it made sense to pursue the credential.
The Atlanta Marathon has come and gone. My time was 4 hrs 42 minutes. A few minutes better than last year which was really good since it rained on us and washed all the body glide off me by mile 7. Fortunately the nipple guards held, but I have one nasty blister that has just almost healed on the arch of my right foot. I posted pictures to my flickr account and might put some up here later.
Training for Goofy’s Challenge is going well. I can’t say that I have expended as much mental energy on it as perhaps I should. But I feel ready to run a half-marathon on Saturday and do the full on Sunday. Lots of nutritous food, some ibuprofen, and well placed ice should get me through it. All these miles that I swim, bike, and run have gotta count for something!
Christmas is 11 days out. The house is decorated. The stockings are hung from the chimney with care. The Jingle Jog 5k is this weekend. I’ll be there with bells on and two unwrapped toys for the Salvation Army Angel Tree.
I’m working out my racing plans for next year and will post them in the next week or so.
