Bummer as I always enjoy reading your posts! However, since I train with you, I'll be able to hear things first hand...cheers Paul!
Paul... I'll bet more people read your blog than you realize. I sure know the feeling though. I've tried to quit blogging a couple times but always go back to it. Not that anybody reads it or that I have anything great to say... I figure maybe I've got a blog entry in me for every race I run, so if I run a thousand races I'll have a thousand blog entries and I'm thankful that I was able to run all those races whether or not anybody reads anything I wrote. On the other hand, if my last race is #150 (I'm at #145 now), then blogging is the least of my problems. You'll do great either way though. Old guys like me require some extra incentive to keep going!
I read it. And Spada's and the Old Runner blog.But I understand that it's not always easy to write something, either.
Thanks loyal readers! Maybe the blog will start up again one day but at the moment I haven't got the motivation to keep updating it and by officially 'pulling the plug' I now feel less pressure to put an entry up! Probably reflects my attitude to running right now. I'm a bit burnt out and so is my creative flow. A bit of a fresh start needed I think!
Thats not right. After running my first marathon I didnt know what to do. At the same time I started reading this blog. Naturaly, the next goal became to post a decent 5k time. Needless to say, I will miss this blog. I hope this metal break is a short one.
Sorry to hear it, Paul, but glad to hear you'll still be posting on facebook. I'll see you there!
This is horrible news. I can't keep up with facebook enough and I am always behind on the morning runs. The running burnout is the scary part. You're a great one Paul.
