the Green Mountain State

It's been awhile, and I've been too busy with school and work lately to push further ahead with the AT journal stuff.  Hoping to get that going again in the next couple weeks or so.  For now, why not link to my last AT post... Day 105, Manchester Center, VT.

Just published Day 74, which means we're halfway into the trip in terms of days (more than halfway in terms of miles... whether intended or not, I slowed down a bit near the end).

midway through the SNP

Day 60 is up.  Almost halfway there :-p

We got a treadmill a few weeks ago and I've been starting to work on my fitness again.  Been thinking about trying to train for a 5k.  I've run a handful of 5ks in the past, though without much dedicated training beforehand.  I'd say my PR is probably 21/22 minutes, so the bar is pretty low.  I'd hope that with some focused training I could break 20 minutes (6:27-ish pace) this first try and then go from there later on.  I'm thinking something like Hal Higdon's intermediate 5k training plan should get the job done.  It's only 8 weeks, and the longest run is 7 miles, so most workouts should be under an hour... certainly not the time commitment for something like a marathon where you disappear for 3-4 hours each weekend to do the long runs.  Should be more palatable all things considered.

taking a break at Snowshoe

Just published Day 40.  Have not done anything golf-related since this.  Had our second child a few weeks ago and it's been hectic around the house to say the least.  But these are good problems to have... "Man, I'm all stressed out because I can't find the right color suitcase to hold this giant pile of $100 bills I found."

just left Hot Springs

Still primarily focusing on getting the AT journal entries written up and posted.  Latest published one is Day 21.  I admittedly have a bunch more written but unpublished... my dark secret is that I like to keep a healthy reserve buffer of posts so I can publish at a more periodic / steady rate.
