Quick Update

It's been a bit since my last post and I am sure that you are wondering why? Well, truth is it has been crazy busy and I haven't made the time to post anything. So, let's catch up......

Work has been busy the past few months with non stop freight coming in and well it was Christmas time so you can only imagine the chaos that comes with that.

Things at home have been even busier but great and I am looking forward to what this new year will bring.

One thing at home that hasn't been great is my car, my car of 10 years little Zippy, or the Honda CRV decided to crap out. It is still drivable but really did I want to risk being stranded somewhere because I wanted to take a chance. I have been having issues with it. The Drive light has been coming on when I am in park and just flashing and than one day earlier this week I tried to put it in reverse and nothing. Nothing so I waited and waited and than tried one more time and it worked. The check engine light was on and I took it in.

My fiance urged me take it in because truth be known I was in denial that anything was wrong. And she was right it was the transmission that was going out. So I was car less for a few days. My fiance was driving to work in the early morning the past few days and would pick me up on her way home from work.

Yesterday we went out car shopping and I came home with a 2011 Chevy Equinox, fully loaded. I have a new car and now I have a car payment which I have enjoyed not having for a long time. But what was I going to do.

It was time to get a new car as little Zippy had been good to me for some time, 10 years. Now to come up with a new nickname for the new car.

So I have updated you on work, it's was busy and still is busy, I have updated you on home, going great plus a new car. The last update is running.

Running, it has been challenging during this busy holiday season, but I managed to get some runs in. Not as many long runs as I have been just exhausted after everything is said and done. I have been running consistently though  these past few weeks and I have my eyes set on the big picture. The big picture is a 100 miler this year. I signed up for The Tahoe Rim Trail 100 Miler. This race of different distances has called my name over the past two years and this year I signed up for the 100. I am excited and nervous at the same time.

With that I am getting focused on running again, getting that drive and passion back has been challenging with everything that has been going these past few months, but I am ready. I am ready to do this and to spend the time and dedication on the training as it will take a lot.

With that being said, Happy New Year and Happy Training!
