Sorry for the lack of posting in the last month; this has been quite a hard year for me already. But hopefully now I will be able to start to move on, and with that comes more posting.
Under terrible circumstances, I was able to get together with some of my family that I haven't seen in many years. It was nice to see everyone again, and I was sad when we all had to leave, because I truly miss hanging out with my cousins and aunts and uncles. I wish we all lived closer to each other.
I've almost decided (I say "almost" because I haven't signed up for it yet) to run a 5-mile race at a local park in a couple of weeks. This will be the first time I've ever raced competitively, but let's be honest, it isn't going to be much of a race. I'm actually just looking forward to being able to say I finished it. I've never run 5 miles in a row, but I have been running 2.5 to 3 every day (admittedly with some walking thrown in there), so I figure I should be able to finish with a somewhat respectable time. Anyway, I usually don't do these things because I'm a wimp and I never have anyone to do them with me, but Keith has promised to be there to support me and watch me cross the finish line, so I think that'll be enough motivation to get me out there. And now that I've told all of you, I'd look pretty silly backing out, so I guess I better just go sign up, huh?
P.S. To my family: Do any of you remember the name of the champagne we were drinking? I'd like to find a bottle.
