Well Wishes And Housekeeping
Thank you EVERYONE. I'm overwhelmed by the posts and all the well wishes. It's been a very touchy/feely week with all your cheering for me! And I feel bad that I've started to gain followers and I don't know if I can put them on the shirt in time - most probably not.
This weekend of course is my first race in Guelph, but the first of two Fall Marathons in Toronto is on Sunday - the Scotia. I'd like to wish everyone success in their races but especially Simon (one of my big inspirations), Q, Aneta and Marlene. If I missed you and you are running it means [I am an a**] I didn't read all your blog posts yet but my wishes and hopes are with YOU!
In the weeks following the race, I will be grunting, puking, swearing, aching, yelling, and more grunting [I hope] since I want to get faster as a runner. I will start some honest training with a coach. The touchy/feely comments will no longer be accepted. I will welcome the tough, "piss fire and sh*t hand grenades" comments! So don't hold back. Humor is also acceptable as it keeps me equal and grateful. Just kidding about the touchy/feely - I can still take a lot of that. :)
I was looking at how blogger and wordpress work with followers, and I realized [after reading the help] that if I don't follow you by clicking on the follow gadget, you don't know I follow you! So if I follow by clicking on the big follow in the upper left corner - it shows up in my blog list but you don't know I follow. Over the next couple of weeks, I'll try to rectify this by unfollowing through blogger and following through the gadget to rectify my invisibility.
I follow a load of blogs and I'm looking into a better interface than blogger. Know of any? Alan seems to be able to view his blogs through gmail or some other google applications. Any suggestions?
