Over the past few months, I have come to realize that there is no such thing as “the right time”. There is a good time to do something, the wrong time and, of course, the best time. But the right time – or the perfect time – just doesn’t exist.
This means that my January goal – to get back into the blogging scene, to write and to read – was a fail. Each day, I waited for the perfect time to sit down at the computer, sometime between school and homework, between dinner and bedtime, between running and feeding the kids again, between putting the boys to bed and getting my homework done. Each day, I waited too long for that perfect time to come – only to watch the next day arrive instead.
This got me thinking about the number of times that we runners wait to do something and miss out on that chance. It could be holding back registering for a race because we’re not quite sure about it, and we find out that it was sold out. We wait to invest in new running shoes because we’re sure we should be able to get another hundred miles out of them; then, we end up with an injury. Or we think about buying that cute running skirt, only to have that the first size to disappear – and before we bought it.
I’ve waited long enough to start this blog over. My mind has been percolating with ideas and I want to put them in writing. I need to share my thoughts – good or bad – and let others share with me.
Over the next few weeks, I have a race reports (up first: Robbie Burns 8K), product reviews (Feedback Friday), and Tasty Tuesday recipes, all intertwined with my daily antics of family, work and running.
So, please, follow along and let me know what you’d like to see.
