Demons

I have been contemplating this post for a few days and nights ( at around 3am, to be exact)
To start, I am not one to be dramatic. I conciously try to not be an alarmist or to draw attention to myself, but I do love to post pictures and share my lovely family and friends on the blog. But, sometimes when day to day events and information is used in a way that puts me or my husband or family in a bad context, I say enough is enough.

So...I try to not use this blog as a training journal. I have enough of that with Training Peaks and as we all know, that is a struggle in and of itself, though getting better. But it may become more of a blog about my triathlons, my workouts and well...not much more.

I dont want to stop the blog, bc that isnt fair to my family and people that catch up with me on the blog. Nor is it fair to Dartmouth or Roger ( !!!ha!) but if you want more details, pictures of fun things i am doing and where i am doing them, things i have purchased with my hard earned money, then you can find that on FB. If you arent my friend, find me and friend me. If you arent my friend for real, then go away.

All is fine. And life was good before anyone even read my blog, and it will be good even if I dont feel right posting as much personal stuff as I have been. And now you are going to have to guess, if it is real or not... I am moving to Hawaii. And I am selling my car and quitting my job.
IS it real or is it pretend? And if you do care that much, then start your own blog and get a life of your own.

But I AM GOING TO AG NATZ! Tuscaloosa here i come! Yes that is real. I promise.

Your blog is so entertaining! It's a wonderful character sketch; don't worry. You are loved by many just for the person you are.

I will be so jealous if you move to Hawaii! So jealous I might just have to follow you there.

And I'm not sure what's going on that's making you have second thoughts about your blog but I love it. And sometimes I worry that I reveal too much on my blog or that it's just some desperate attempt at attention but then I think of the relationships I'll have from it or the fact that one day Zach will be able to read it and maybe learn about sides of his mom he wasn't aware of. Anyway, I hope you keep the blog.

Hey girl
I have been through this too- a year or so ago I remember getting scorched for some post I wrote, and there were so many other times I just thought about canceling the blog. Even just a month ago, a college friend told me he thought it was really egocentric of me to have a blog about myself. My thoughts: This is just a piece of your life- a glimpse of something you want to share. It is not the whole sha-bang and can in no way encompass you as a whole, awesome person. I am ordering you to keep your blog because your friends (and blog friends) care and it is fun. write all of your training miles if you want, or none at all. you enjoy your life, and we are enjoying it with you. xxxxoooooo:)
