Slogging Onward With The Blog

My community spirit died a few months ago, but heh, I feel the phoenix rising... even as I gag on the ashes pouring down from the blackened sky. Oh well, "the host is the bit player in my world" says the parasite.

okay, okay enough psycho-rambling. I've been so busy the past few months... running... a few 5ks here and there, lots of training run... lots of whining about not being able to run... but the big news was my turn as stage manager of the HCCT Theatre's production of "You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown." I did a lousy... er nonjob of promoting it... heavy sigh... but I was so tired! I'll do better next time. At any rate, I had a blast and met some incredible people. I love the theatre!

Okay, back to running... there's a 5k in Cartersville this weekend that I'd like to run in just for the t-shirt... The M*A*S*H 5km on Sat 06/14/2008 But alas, I'm having relatives swoop in so that won't be possible.

I'm toying with the idea of getting my brother hooked on this one... before he comes home for the weekend.... The GA 400 Road Race in Atlanta, GA Sat 06/14/2008 It's a four miler and I really like those. And we could do brunch afterward!!!!! Oh, what a glorious idea! I doubt it'll happen, but I can dream...

And I'd really like to do this Sunrise Run 8k in Greenville, SC on June 14th. But alas, I fear I lack the early morning wakeup gene.... And staying up all night and driving for an hour, sweating, straining, groaning for one more is not always advisable when the coffeehouses are closed.

And last I leave you with news of the Saturday Swat Trot, a 5K run, 5K walk, 1K fun run in Snellville, GA. That would probably be more to my brother's taste. We shall see if I can stick this on the to do list...
