Happy New Year!
I want to thank everyone who has been gracious enough to visit my blog from time to time. I just received notification from Word Press that I have been blogging for three years. It’s hard to believe that it’s been that long. I’ve been running, riding, and walking through the cold, heat and every now and then the rain. Sometimes the words like the miles have come easy and other times not so much. I will be honest these last few months I haven’t felt like blogging much. I began to wonder if I really wanted to continue writing. I even placed the blog on private status for a while. I enjoyed completing the mileage but the process seemed sort of empty. There was a struggle going on to whether or not I really wanted to continue talking about it and why was I really doing what I was doing.
Also, a little something called allergies happened here in the valley. Yes. Allergies. Yeah, I’ve had them before when I was a kid. Snotty nose, mouth breather, walking around with a bottle of Afrin like it was a second arm. But this was different. There is sinus allergies then there are skin allergies. The kind of allergies where you just want to claw your face off. Sooooo….yes, this was a new and interesting aspect of Arizona that frankly I just wasn’t ready to experience. Extreme dryness and cold causes very bad itchy dry skin. I’m happy to report I’m better. But it sure took a bite of many of the activities I like to do.
My stats for 2015 1,179.24 a cool 404 more than 2014. Not too shabby considering this year’s been filled with change. Since my quest has begun I have completed 2,984 miles in some way or another. It’s strange because I am and I’m not tired if that makes any sense. The holidays are through and it’s time to move forward with 2016. I’m excited and pensive at the same time. I feel like I just need to get on my bike and ride….hmmm that sounds like a familiar song. For January I have completed 28.36 so far. I have 8,331 miles graciously awaiting. I hope this finds you happy and with much love in the new year. Happy Miles to You:-)
