Un-Social Month

For the month of November I’m taking a social sabbatical. I’ll be quietly ignoring as much Facebook as possible, avoiding reTweeting anything, minimizing my Instagram life, and generally doing some non-technical things. I might do a few serious blog posts, but only if it’s got some weighty heft about something I want to record: like telling you about this awesome book I’m reading, or posting photos from some crazy adventure. But otherwise, nothing for November. Quiet. Still. Nada. And then… well… full steam ahead in December with my annual blog-a-day month. Until then….

A confluence of vacation speculation and a modest financial windfall leads me to ponder a technology upgrade.

This Used to Be a Running Blog…

…among other things. It has become increasingly clear that I’ve fallen off the running wagon this year. On Saturday I watched on the socials as dozens of my friends ran around the city and province, training and racing in events including five klick fundraisers, long training runs, late-evening party races, favourite mountain events, and even an epic ultra marathon trail run. I ate pizza and wandered around the science centre. Albeit it was my only daughter’s tenth birthday party and I was playing the role of the good dad, but I didn’t even go out for a modest morning jog on Saturday. It didn’t even cross my mind. I tell myself over and over and over that “I’m gonna pick it up” again soon, get back into some serious training and maybe even some serious distance… but there is a motivational element that isn’t clicking these days. It used to be that I wrote about it, ran it, and then wrote about it some more. Maybe that was it? Stay tuned, I guess… this slump can’t last forever.
