Back to blogging....

I seriously wondered if I could even log into this blog anymore.  Would Google have deleted it for lack of use?  Fortunately for me, they did not.

Still running, now 9 years after starting this blog.  And running is definitely still an adventure.  So much has happened.  The time of my journey became joyfully clear to me after finding an old iPod Nano (2nd generation), charging it up, and finding the full suite of my Running Adventures podcast.  Since my newer iPod is MIA, I decided to take this one on my 10 mile long run last weekend.  I fired up the podcast, curious to hear what I had put together 8 years ago.  Almost immediately I was whisked back in time.  My happy tears must have looked strange while I was run-walking my way through the neighborhood.

I only produced the podcast for one year, and only 15 episodes with one "mini" adventure.  These were made between 2007 and 2008.  My daughters were ages 7 and 13 and were always featured in some small way in every podcast (actually the older daughter delivered the critical "Three facts."  The special treat for me was having an audio record of so many amazing things I did with my girls when they were small.  Amazing only in that they were everyday things - but part of my life adventure.   My "fact" reporting oldest daughter is now a junior in college and no longer runs with me while my younger daughter is going into 10 grade and seems to have inherited my ability to be too busy.

I am going to begin reposting the podcasts here, since my account that stored them online has long since expired.  Podcasts have come a LONG way since 2008 - my production quality was pretty poor at times, but I still am happy with what I wanted to capture during each one - to take the listener on a running and life adventure.

So, thanks to Soundhound, here is Episode 1 of Running Adventures!  The link to the original show notes is http://marathonchris.blogspot.com/2007/03/running-adventures-episode-001-run-run.html.  I hope you are all out there having your own amazing adventures!
