It’s been a long time since I went three days in a row without a single post. There’s a lot going on in my head, and there was nothing out the that I just had to write about. Coming into today I was thinking that it was time to write about something. I woke up just before 6:00am and when I looked at the clock I decided that today would be a good day to do something else that I have been meaning to do for a while – run.
After the marathon I took time to recover and then I ran a couple of times before deciding to take some more time to recover. Then I took time to catch up on all the things that had suffered as a result of my training. Things got busy at work, and the kids went through another schedule adjustment with Savannah starting school (and Isaac deciding to wake up every night again). The kids decided to do the rounds of sickness. The result was that I have not been running at all since August. I’m hoping to run 1000 miles next year so I should go into the year running a little bit.
I felt that finally running was an excuse to write. Then I found some very compelling material for more political posts. Expect to see at least one more post today. I plan to write on the best argument against vouchers that I have ever encountered (in my opinion), and more thoughts on the brewing health care debate in the nation.
