Getting Back to It
When I originally started this blog a few years ago, my intention was to share my thoughts, feelings, frustrations, etc. about endurance sports and my enthusiasm for them. Since my relocation to Kodiak, AK last year I have put this blog on the back burner. I have posted occasional Instagram pictures or articles about endurance sports, but haven’t shared anything personal for some time.
This entry is being made to state that I am going to be making a conscious effort to post on a more regular basis. Although living here in Kodiak has changed the way I do some of my hobbies, it has not changed my love for them. I have been in a major cycling kick over the past few months and have been able to get in some enjoyable rides here in Kodiak as well as California and Japan. I recently completed a Strava challenge that I have been unable to complete the previous two years, the Rapha Rising Challenge, climbing 8800m(28,871.4’) in 9 days. With there being about 65 miles of paved road and the biggest climb of 330’ over 3/4 of a mile, I was forced to do 38 repeats on the last day of the challenge. A friend of mine and fellow blogger will be posting a Q&A about that particular challenge, which I will be sure to re post.
I will continue to ride a few times a week while I transition back into running mode. There is a marathon here on the island in October that I plan to do. I haven’t ran a marathon in a few years but am looking forward to training for something. There are not many events on Kodiak so I need to take advantage of it.
Kodiak can be a pretty amazing place to live and I intend to take advantage of my surroundings. I will continue to post and share my stories and thoughts. I hope you enjoy.
