Keeping momentum going

The half marathon has been postponed since I hadn't been running before this week in about a month. I don't know how my upward trajectory can suddenly fizzle and fall back to the easy routine of not running at all, especially when I was doing so well, but there it is. Probably a lot to do with leaving my job and moving back to the Lower Mainland. However, all is not lost.

I've been running each day this week, and I'm going to sign up for shorter distance race (8km or 10km?) sometime before Christmas. That will at least motivate my feet to keep going even when the weather is bad. And I don't doubt the weather will be bad again soon since I've recently returned from Merritt to the Lower Mainland. Now that I've got this time to look for other opportunities, I might as well run. A lot.

I'm also taking up knitting again with a vengeance (the scarf must be done by Christmas!) and plannig to learn to cook some real food. One day I'll be a gourmet. One day I will serve a great meal for friends, but for now, I'm just going to get the basics down. Last night I made a really nice sockeye salmon fillet, marinated and baked, with rice and broccoli. Tasty, healthy and oh, so like a real grownup.
