Thank you for your kind comments on my last post. You will be happy to know that I did run again.
Did you ever think or consider turning your book into a blog? I did and I made books of my blog. I started blogging on June 27th 2009, over 2 years ago now. I never read posts back on my blog and a few months ago I googled if it was possible to turn your blog into a book which was. During my vacation I made 2 books. 1 from June 2009 till June 2010 (my old blog before I got my own domain) and 1 from June till December 2009. I ordered them last Saturday at a US company and they arrived yesterday. It looks very good and I’m very happy with it. I will make another one in January for 2011 and will continue that for as long as I keep blogging.
It’s cool to read back what I have been doing, the photos from my blog are in it too, and to read my improvements with my running.
Yesterday I had my yearly birthday dinner with my friend T. She cooked for me and as usual it was delicious. After dinner we sat outside with her husband, her son and his girlfriend and her daughter and her boyfriend (her first, so cute). B. (T.’s husband) played some old tapes on the laptop to show the girlfriend of his son how he looked when he was 2 years old. The funny part was that R. was on the tapes too, 20 years ago, 2 years before I met him. It was so fun to see him and I brought the DVD home to show to him this weekend. It was a great evening.
Well I did suck it up Thursday morning and did run before work. And you know what: it wasn’t that bad, in fact it felt pretty good. I’m still not back at running the entire distance (for the short distances) but I will get there.
