Now I’ve really gone and lost my mind… Signed up for the Inagural Half Marathon taking place at Disneyland in Anaheim this September.
So far, my training is going pretty well, but I can already see that the big challenge for me is going to be cardiovascular. With asthma and those years as a mouse potato to combat, even all the effort that I put into increasing my fitness over the last three years won’t quite cut it.
…It’s really cool to have a big new goal to work toward though! 😀

There are always valuable lessons to be learned in tough times, and I don’t want to miss out on any of them.
Perhaps I found one: It is only when my appearance is so greatly compromised that I come to realize how much I rely upon it every day as a source of confidence… Face to ugly face with pride and vanity.

Who didn’t see it coming? I’m going to take a short break so that I can focus on some of the bigger things happening in my life right now.
Specifically, I have some health issues that need to be taken care of, one of them being an upcoming surgical procedure… No big deal, so don’t worry about me or nuffin, I just need lots of rest and relaxation.
I’ll be back soon… Promise!
Expect to see signs of life now and then. Maybe I’ll add pictures to the galleries or share new revelations. As for daily posts, I should be back in action toward the end of March or early in April, I would imagine… Thanks for all the love! It goes both ways — XOXOX
