Fallen off the face of the Earth…

I would love to write a whole post of excuses about why I have written a post in so long, but I just don’t have the time. Well, clearly I have the time, but I have just been mismanaging it.  With Halo 4 and Call of Duty: Black Ops II coming out with a week of each other, one has to ensure their priorities are correct.  #1.  Halo 4  #2.  Call of Duty.  That was a lot easier than I thought.

The one update I meant to write two weeks ago:  One of the reasons I started this blog was the fact I had just failed my Physical Fitness Assessment.  Since my body fat was out of standards, I didn’t even get to do the sit-ups, pushups, or the run.  Well, on 26 October, I weighed in at 207 lbs and 21 % Body Fat.  The standard is 22%, so I was a little surprised that I “squeaked” in like I did.  But a good checkpoint and reminder that there is still plenty of work to do.  The exciting part for me: I maxed out my situps, my pushups, and ran my 1.5 miles in 10 minutes flat.  My goal since I graduated from the Naval Academy was to run 10:30 or faster, so this was a huge feat for me.  That makes for an overall score of Outstanding (the highest score) with an Outstanding in every category.

Jaime and I are still on track for the 9 December Honolulu marathon.  We have run 16 miles three weekends in a row, 18 miles last weekend, 18 miles this coming Sunday… and then we will be tapering down until the marathon.

Baby steps back into the whole writing game.  Please bear with me.
