In the last four months since I wrote here. The biggest thing is...well...I'm not much of a runner lately. I've gained a lot of weight since last fall, and it has made it uncomfortable and not fun to run. Not a good excuse, but it really is what is keeping me from running.
That, and I have a new love in my life. I new love that I dream about, think about during the day, research in the evenings, and yearn to be doing when I'm not. My new love is roller derby. In the end of July, I started going to practices in my town here for the Kingsford Krush roller derby. My only athletic talent in life has always been roller skating (growing up I don't ever remember losing a race), so to have this in my life as an adult is thrilling.
I will return to running, but probably not until next spring. Running will probably be a cross training activity for roller derby for me.
I'm not doing the Chicago Marathon next weekend like I had planned...I'm woefully under-trained for it, and I have a roller derby scrimmage that same day that I would much rather be at!!
Anyway, I just wanted to update everyone (all 5 of you that probably read my blog, lol) on what I've been doing.
I will probably begin to blog about roller derby now, and much less about running.
It feels great to have a love for a sport that actually loves me back by allowing me to be talented at it...unlike running! :)
Enjoy the pics below of our practices!!
