The problem with not blogging that often is that one's thoughts are all a jumble from the variety of the past several weeks. So let's start with a list.

Family - Dear spouse has become a non-competitive fitness junkie. Our new rowing machine is a big success. She either does 90 minutes of yoga, 30 to 60 minutes of treadmill running or 30 minutes on the rowing machine every day. She is looking pretty buff. Son is handling landlordhood just fine in Colorado. Daughter is with the National Park Service as an intern archivist in the Upper Penisula of Michigan. Crosstrain is content with all the above.

Work - Going well, got new responsibilities and apparently I am pretty competent. Going to travel some more again.

Running Injury - Nearly 2.5 years and counting. I do therapy every day and see the chiro a lot. Not getting worse. I'll take it.

Running - Am actually doing some at the behest of my chiro. I am running 3 to 4 miles every third day (eg two days off between runs). I raced the LP run and the Bayou Bash relay. Tomorrow I will run the Bolder Boulder 10k, but I will not be racing....pacing duties with my wife.

Cycling - Going great. Nearly back to top form, can sustain long distances at 20 mph average pace with the club peloton. Really thinking hard about doing a triathlon this summer.

Clubs - BARC has put together a great leadership team for the coming year. I only need to continue to do the eBARCer. The team is so strong that I actually expect to give HARRA a bit more of my time. I volunteered for the Space Race with the Space City Cycling Club, but am not involved in any leadership or ongoing volunteer activities currently.

Social - Spend too much time on Facebook. They say having friends is one of the healthiest things for you. I don't know, sometimes I long for the days when I was in my own little bubble and did not have to deal with you lot. Maybe my next reinvention will be Crosstrain the hermit. :P

Glad to see you back! And glad to see you are running, if only twice a week.
