Steady State

It's just that time of year.

There was lots to do today, getting ready to leave for a week or so on the annual "over the river and through the woods" holiday trek. I had hoped to get in 4 miles on the treadmill, but ran out of time at 3.5 miles.

It happens.

ORN: 3.5 miles, treadmill. R4/W1 [run pace, 10:31, walk pace, 16:12] 40 minutes

Just thought I'd say hello. I've heard of you and have been reading some of your articles. I too am a penguin, and a new penguin at that.

I loved finding out that you are part of the Team in Training crew. They were what got me started, and I will be running my first long-distance event next weekend, the Disney Half. It will also be my 23rd birthday. I spent about 21 years of my life being a bit on the chunky side, and a lot on the unhealthy side, and I finally feel like I'm getting my life back.

So thank you for inspiring people like me, who might not be the "best" or the fastest, to just do OUR best. Type A personalities like mine may sometimes feel that if we can't do it well, it's not worth doing. I'm learning to redefine "doing it well," and I am loving every step of the way.... or at least, most of them.

So... thanks! And happy new year!
