“Going the Distance” Into the New Year
I think I’ve probably mentioned before that the past 4 months have been rather busy! Between my training, teaching, writing, and everyday living, I’ve been left with little time for much else. In the next two weeks, much of that will be coming to a conclusion as I transition into a new stage in my life. On Saturday, I’ll be walking across the stage for the third time, and graduating with my doctorate. This will be followed by multiple family holiday celebrations. From there, we’ll be flying to Phoenix for more holiday fun (in much warmer weather, mind you), and it will in many ways culminate with my 24-hour running adventure on December 28-29. It is going to be a busy end to the year, as this time of year tends to be for many people. There will no doubt be plenty of celebrating, reflecting, and goal-setting for the upcoming year.
Each of these pieces of the puzzle has been a part of chasing 42, and I am looking forward to continuing the chase into the new year and towards new goals and accomplishments. You can expect a complete and detailed review of Across the Years once I return to Iowa and a consistent internet connection. In the meantime, I may pop in with some quick updates. I’ll be returning to our regularly scheduled program in 2014 as the adventures continue. Same Bat time, same Bat channel! No matter where the next few weeks take you, I hope they are enjoyable and spent doing what you love…and hopefully logging those miles as well 🙂
