So here we are. For whatever reason, and try as I might I can’t really come up with anything more specific than “because I want to”, I am starting today with this blog.
Much as I don’t really have a reason – or rhyme – for you, so I don’t have a general, all pervasive theme that I can say will dominate my postings in the forthcoming months. Perhaps the best I can give you is that it will be something to do with me, be it my tentative interest in gardening, my more refined love of all things gadget or even my self afflicted source of constant pain and pleasure that is supporting Leeds United. In fact it will most likely be none of these but something altogether different. However, what I can say is that, like it or not, I am here and something, inconsequential as it may be, will come of it.
And so to start in such a unstructured, undefined and apparently random fashion it seems appropriate that this first post closes on my re-found, post New Year’s passion for running. Its been sometime since I ditched the gym for a return to the great outdoors, but it is only with the passage of the previous month of gluttony and imbibing, which has left me much the worse for it, that have I found the necessary nerve and steel needed for me to brave the cold, dark January nights that lay ahead,
To help me through it all I’ve enlisted the virtual services at Nikeplus.com and will be setting out tonight for my first run in quite a while as I try to get back to a decent 10k time.
All being well I’ll make it and return to keep you up to date with my progress and whatever else crosses my mind in the meantime….
