End of the decade: Refocusing on blogging

I really want to write a post about how I'm ready to make major changes in my blogging, put more things out there, set some new goals and be a better runner,

Those things take time, though. I know from my experiences that a change isn't going to just snap into place. So many other things in life have to come before blog posts, but I'm at least going to TRY to make some changes here.

At the very least, I can commit to posting once a week here through the end of 2019. That's something I believe can happen consistently.

So what else can I do before 2020 gets here? The countdown is on to the end of this decade ...

... and while I'm going to be well shy of a 1,000-mile goal that I quietly set and mentioned only once, I'm still on pace to beat last year's mileage by 300.

My focus now is getting to 850 miles for the year. There's no need to dive into specifics now ... that can be a future post.

Another post I need to take on - running the Blue Ridge Marathon again!

I put this on Twitter ...

... and have barely come back to it anywhere. Sign up using my code and let's run this together. I've got some big goals in mind to discuss before the end of the year.

I also want to get back on the track a couple of times before the end of the year. I had a wonderful thing happening this spring, lost sight of all progress this summer and feel like I wasted away a good opportunity.

That's a theme that I've had this year that I need to erase and enter the 2020s with a revamped mind-frame that was starting to happen.

Lastly, I need to write about "starting over." I've had some major changes with my running since the beginning of last year, which was a true "starting over" point for me.

There are endless things to discuss with my mileage, my always changing mental state and how right now feels like "starting over, phase two."

And with that, I can at least get through November with some content ... and then hopefully things will continue to spark mentally for me.
