This morning as I logged in here, I was notified by wordpress that I started my blog 3 years ago… Wow, that seems like a long time, and to be honest – feels it! So much has happened in the last three years! I live in a different state, work at a different job, drive a different car, wear different unde…. ok, we won’t go to that last one… But when I started writing the blog, I had no idea WHAT I was going to write about. At the time it was simply called “Odd Futures.” While I wasn’t sure what it was going to be filled with, I knew what sort of future was in store for me, and boy was I right! Then a high school friend of mine, Chris, asked me if I wanted to run a 5k with him (With no training on my part.) IT was only a few months later that I found a use for this blog, and Once and Future Runner was born! I have to admit, while life didn’t head the direction I was trying for (And a government pension sounded so lovely…), It has gone in a great direction!
It is really is amazing to look at how everything has changed. I think its important periodically to stop and look at where I was 3 years ago, 5 years ago and 10 years ago, just to really look at the growth and change that I have lived through. Quite often, we don’t notice the “little” things at the time they happen, yet they can be glaringly apparent when we look back.
I also want to thank those of you that have run this journey with me thus far. When I started writing this, I didn’t think anyone else would be interested in what I was writing, but with 20,000 views – I am blown away! Thank you!
I’m pretty happy with where life has brought me in the last three years, and I am looking forward to the future! Please, stay with me! As this anniversary hits, it seems the perfect time for a change of attitude and direction in my fitness goals! Stay tuned for more on that!
