Sorry for the long delay between posts. Is it me, or has the world just gotten ridiculously busy lately? It kind of seems like work and school and such has just blow the hell up for everybody.
Anyways got some things cooking in the old noodle so I'll share...
1) i had a shimmering glimpse of an opportunity to get involved in this year's Boston Marathon. I know what you're all thinking. "Ryan, are you gonna win?" Sadly, no. But thank you for thinking that. I am not really "there" on my training and I have a long journey before I can say I am ready. The open slots went to several other people, but I am in contact with the people from Tedy's team, so maybe next year.
2) The whole thing with the Marathon reminded me that I need to keep my goals pretty focused. I have several of the sprint Tri's lined up, the road race, possibly the Providence 1/2 marathon in the relatively near future. The whole reason for these though, is to keep me focused on fitness so by the end of this year I'll be in peak condition and able to run either the Philadelphia or NYC marathon. Boston is my must do marathon, but it is a hard nugget to crack and the goal is to do one before 30... that really only leaves philly or NYC in november. I think boston will just have to wait.
3) Gorilla man - not even a mention of the girl from glee's performance. I totally believe her as the misunderstood popular girl who turns away from the in crowd to be the lone artistic type in middle of nowhere Ohio. (ironically it is similar to the town that Glee is set in) How bout that for some attention to detail? By the by... The police officer got bounced off a telephone pole, like a raquet ball... I don't think that kid told his father anything about what direction they were going in. Here's an idea though... cross over film. Mulder and Scully run across number 4 and 6 and mayhem ensues. Who are the good guys? Only time will tell. Anybody with me?
4) Thats about it for me today. I am sure I'll have new and exciting things to say, but for right now I am reading a new book "marathoning for mortals" and just hitting the docks. Everybody keep up the good work and we'll catch you all on the flip side.
