Taking a Break

i'm seriously beginning to question the wisdom of planning a vacation at the height of my "training"...if you could even call it that these days. i've been working fact going in today for a few hours to help pay for this trip and it's leaving precious little time for much is suffering.

i'm also questioning the helpfulness of this blog. in fact it's become more a source of irritation than inspiration. i find the act of writing to be helpful when sorting out my thoughts that hasn't changed. i just don't know if i need to do it here.

it's no coincidence that as my training started to stall so did my enthusiasm for blogging.

a training buddy would be helpful but apparently it's just not in the cards for me.
maybe my expectations are too high. maybe i have some serious social flaws that i am oblivious of. maybe i have bad breath. beats the hell out of me but i'm just so over trying to connect with people who can't commit. so sick of doing all the work.

if i sound a little bitter...i am.

so i will be taking a break for awhile. try to regain some of my training momentum and get through the next couple of weeks of working overtime with the Kona Coast as my inspiration.

Lots of bloggers take breaks and the separation does them a lot of good. I do hope you'll resume blogging, but I sure don't blame you for wanting to take it easy for awhile.

Have a blast in Hawaii!

Enjoy your break. We'll be here. Nothing wrong with take a breather once in a while.

Hi Christine, I saw you when I was volunteering with Catra at the PCTR Sequoia run a few months back. I am training (if you can call it that) for the Nike marathon in October. I would love to do some long runs with you if possible as I always run by myself (which is less than motivating!). Let me know if you're interested. (I live in the East Bay).

Thanks! Michele
