I know, I know…Where have I gone?
This blog has been on the backburner for the last couple of months because I have been busy with things (e.g. finding a job, family, traveling). But I am still running. I ran the Portland Half Marathon and going to be running in the Raleigh City of Oaks Half Marathon on November 2 as part of my training for the Charleston (South Carolina) Marathon in January. I’m running on my own not being tethered to a specific running group, which is nice because I can make my own workout schedule. Occasionally I would run with Fleet Feet Carrboro for the social fun runs. I learned that the Fleet Feet headquarters is in Carborro (near Chapel Hill) too. After work, I started to run on the Duke campus instead of just sitting in traffic and then run at the gym. I’m still trying to find a gym for a cross training. They just opened a Flywheel (spinning) gym near downtown. But I’m looking for a gym that offers yoga, spinning, and strength training/TRX. I found a couple of places that I can do a trial membership.
Starting next year is when I will venture back and start running in groups again. Right now I’m enjoying the fall weather here in Raleigh and definitely looking forward to running in ice/snow free weather during winter time. Also looking forward to not digging my car out!
