But today marks the end of that relaxed attitude towards writing about my passion. I've found that putting things into words on pages means they're more likely to get done and this year, I'd like to show up and perform better at Badwater 135. I have 5 months, give or take a few days, until I toe the start line once again at my dream race and unlike last year, where it was my very first time there, I know what to expect and I know what I need to do between now and then. Proclaiming it for all the cyber-world to see ensures I keep up my end of the bargain.
So as I sit here contemplating running outside where it is literally 100 degrees colder than what I face in July, I make an agreement with myself to pick up where I left off years ago, and share my journey with the few readers who may find some nuggets of wisdom, humor and general entertainment in my words. For those looking for experience or advice about training for BW135, you've come to the right place.
Thanks for making it this far. Here's to a better (and faster) 2016.
