Comrades Update: It’s Wednesday!

weekdays (frome crossword series)

WHOA!  What are we doing here?  It’s Wednesday!  OnBalance is a Monday/Thursday thing, right?!  What’s going on?

My friends, I’m happy to say that I’m going to be here every few Wednesdays through 2105 to update you on my plans for running Comrades Marathon in May.  I suspect that once the calendar turns 2016, I’ll be posting about Comrades even more often.  And come April and May?  It’s going to be all Comrades, all the time (well, at least on Wednesdays).  I have to have someone to talk to about my training and its associated obsessions, and I love my husband too much to make him crazy with my incessant chatter.

I like you, too.  So if you hate posts about running or travel or running and travel, give Wednesdays at OnBalance a pass.   I’ll be posting my regular family/fitness/life/balance musings on Monday and Thursday as always.

But if you’re even mildly curious about the preparations for running a 56 mile race on the other side of the world and the adventures therein, make sure you’re here!

(And if you’re curious about this whole Comrades thing or you have no idea what I’m talking about, use those tags over there ——————————————–> and click on the one that says “comrades” to find all the posts about this wacky undertaking.)

What do you have to look forward to?

I’m going to keep updating my progress toward my Comrades qualifying race, the Dallas Marathon, coming up in December.  I’m also going to let you know about our travel plans and how we’re going to make the most of our time in Africa.  There were some negotiations with Mr. Balance to honor his concerns about leaving our three kids for such a long time.  We’ve got a plan now, and everyone is excited about the adventure ahead!

All of this– and lots and lots of running talk– is coming to OnBalance on a Wednesday soon.

Thanks for your support!
