It's been a while. I had to spend a few months recovering. During that I got into running a bit more, and while I'm way heavier than the average "runner" it seemed I could plod along at my little 12:00 pace for hours and hours, so I did a 10k and half on the road, and a 10k, half and full marathon on trails. Beat the heck out of me, and took a month to heal from the marathon. So maybe I am just heavy and slow and need to drop that for a while and get back to hiking.
Had another discussion with my "work boss" and I guess now we're down to counting minutes - which sucks in planning trips to foreign countries. Not that there's anything wrong with that, mind you ... ;)
