Welcome to 2013 and life after the end of the Mayan calendar

Life really is funny.  Last year I was looking hard at competing in the Leadville 100 later this year.  Now I am struggling to get my training back online so I can run the Austin Marathon in February .  Last year we were living in Parker and had no intent to change.  Then December rolled around.  The end of the Mayan calendar may not have meant the end of the world, but it did turn into the end of life as Kate and I had known it.  Kate was offered a job in Broomfield and our lives got turned upside down for a month.  The new job meant packing and moving our lives from Parker to Westminster, all within two weeks so Kate wouldn’t have a 80 mile commute in the middle of the winter.  Crazy, oh yeah.  With all the craziness went all of my extra money that I might have used for Leadville and all the time I should have been spending ramping up my mileage for Austin.  Oh well, Leadville will be there next year and Austin will happen, it just won’t be a PR effort.  The good news is that life may settle down in time for me to properly train for Boston.  That is going to be EPIC!  Hope everyone is enjoying life in 2013.
