When I really think about what I want to do with my free time- breaks at work, time in the early morning- reading blogs and writing a blog that very few people read aren't on that list. Back when I was racing a bunch and getting connected to other runners, it was a lot of fun, but my priorities have changed.
I'm not going into total hermit-mode. I'll come by and visit other blogs sometimes- to see pictures of babies born and laugh at funny captions and Paint drawings- but I want that to be a conscious action, not something I default to doing while I'm waiting for a program to run.
I'm also not going to take the blog (or my earlier running blog) down because I *think* I'd like to go back to look at what was going on in my life from 2008-2011 some time. And who knows, after a break, maybe I'll pull a Brett Favre and come back out of retirement 10 times.
I don't expect comments or anything, I just didn't want anyone to think I'd fallen off the actual Earth. Just the blog Earth. Goodbye!
