Running, Essentially . . .


Blog Goal – Post as Many Days as I Run in 2011

Dear Friends,

WordPress has challenged Bloggers to Post every day in 2011.

I run most every day and find it easier to assume that I will run every day, than to have to decide yes or no each and every day.  Similarly, I thought it might be easier to feel no pressure to blog every day BUT in fact, it seemed to consume more energy to decide yes or no every day.

As with running, I will not be obsessive about maintaining a streak (I’ve never been a streaker in that sense but all power to those with that approach.) however I would like to see how it feels to assume blogging as a daily habit. My estimate of non-running days for 2010 is 10-12 days. The typical reasons for days off from running are rest, before and after races or travel days.

I hope you’ll bear with me if the quality of posts gets a little thin or off-topic however I feel certain that the more I write, the better I’ll get at it.

I’ll also be making use of The DailyPost, and the community of other bloggers with similiar goals, to help me along the way, including asking for help when I need it and encouraging others when I can.

If you read my blog, I hope you’ll encourage me with comments and “likes” along the way.  A special thanks to Robyn (the only person I know who has a blog and does that date me?) author of Fit ‘n’ Frugal for posting her comments.

Thank you!
