There’s an old song that I really like and that was even on my running playlist back when I was a distance runner and used to listen to music while I ran those long runs.
The song was released in 1982 and the lyrics are perfect for this blog entry and for my blog in general. The group that wrote and recorded it was Whitesnake and the song was titled, Here I Go Again.
Check out some of the lyrics: (Or you can listen here to the version they played on the radio.)
But I sure know where I’ve been
Hanging on the promises in songs of yesterday
An’ I’ve made up my mind, I ain’t wasting no more time
Here I go again, here I go again
It’s been a month and a half since I’ve posted anything. I keep learning the same lesson over and over again! It seems these days that I only have two speeds – lazy and obsessive. As I’ve said before, I just don’t seem to do casual very well. It quickly turns into lazy! Truth is, my normal mode has been obsessive for most of my life and only as I’ve gotten older, with a bit more spare time, have I allowed myself to take the lazy option.
Problem is, when I get lazy in one area it leads to laziness in another, and that leads to laziness in another and so on. And this excuse of getting older? I have to remind myself that it’s just an excuse to slow down; and, with only two speeds that’s simply not a good choice for me!
A bit of rain and a lot of cold weather have put a hurtin’ on my follow-through with running lately and, as a result, there hasn’t been much to blog about. Hold on! Did I say cold weather? This is the Florida panhandle! My friends up north tell me that we don’t do cold weather down here. Well, I would usually agree, but not for this past winter with those sub-freezing temps!
I guess I’ll have to draw inspiration from that old quote that says there’s no cold weather – only inappropriate clothing. I’ll be wishing I had more of that cold weather with those hot summer days arrive!
Meanwhile, here I go again!
