Anonymity (or not)

When I started this blog, I was uneasy about the idea of certain people from my past being allowed glimpses into my present life.  I had the notion that I could remain anonymous.  However, it didn’t take me long to realize that wasn’t the case.  Partly due to the loss of anonymity and partly due to some serious shake-ups in my life, I let the blog slide.  But, I really miss blogging.  I miss sharing my thoughts, my photographs, and my life.  So, if mean-spirited people read this, so be it.  I’m going to continue to share. 

In time, I will update snippets from the past year.  Yes, my half-iron plans fell through.  I’m not sure when or even, if, I will try to resurrect those plans.  After much thought, and given my desire to live lightly on the planet, I’ve decided triathlons are counter-productive to the “green” movement.  I might still decide to do one every now and then, but right now, the desire is pretty weak.  I still bicycle quite a bit and run occasionally.  I’d like to make a serious effort to increase my running, though, which should happen this year.  I’d like to do the Mountain Goat again and possibly the Cazenovia 10-miler again.  I love the simplicity of running – just lace up your sneakers and go.  We’ll see how these plans turn out, since they’re contingent on my employment situation.  I will post more on that next time.
