My WordPress.com Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary with WordPress.com!
You registered on WordPress.com 6 years ago.
Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging.
Amazingly I have been using WordPress.com for 6 years! I’m not really sure where the time has gone, but suddenly I’m here. I know when I started using the platform in my classroom I had great plans to communicate with my students — which I did sort of. Then I created a variety of other sites for other purposes, which were also used sort of. Finally I created this site. While I am not a power user like many other blogger, I still find time to post things about my journey towards a healthier me, as well as some photos and book reviews. Here’s hoping I can log a few more kilometers running and biking and crank out a few more post in the coming year.
Thanks for playing along!

E: Egads #atozchallenge

Egads! We are 6 days into April and I have yet to submit a single post for the A to Z Challenge I foolishly (optimistically) signed up for. I have some great good ideas for posts, but I have yet to actually write anything. I am going to try to go back and fill in the gaps from the first 5 days.

In addition to the realization that I hadn’t actually managed to get anything written is that I haven’t exercised much in the last while. I serious of unfortunate events prevented my progress: flood into my exercise area, chest cold (hard to exercise when you can’t breath), work challenges and timelines, and apathy (hey a topic for A!). Of course, excuses are like noses — everybody has one, and some of these really should not have precluded working out. I did manage to get out for a 5 km run one day, but then life got in the way and the weather turned cold again so I didn’t get out for more.

 

First 5 km run of the year. I even ran a reindeer!

So as my first triathlon draws nearer, I do need to get out there and move, or at the very least put my exercise gear back in place and start riding the bike indoors. First things first, though; I have to keep writing and posting.

Wish me luck with my various challenges!
