A change in the focus of this blog

I have to admit I've been pretty bad about posting anything to this blog lately. I've been preparing for my PhD comprehensive exam (in two weeks), and it's been brutal to say the least.

I'm not going to do any more stuff regarding religion, politics, etc. There are many other blogs that do those subjects and do them quite well - much better than I ever could.

What I am going to write about is one of my hobbies - running. I've been running on and off since high school. It got me through some of my hardest years in college, and if it wasn't for a six mile tempo run I did in Albuquerque I wouldn't have met my wife (or have a beautiful 6 month old!).

Now running has been helping (with some help from Lexapro) keep my depression and anxiety at bay. I'm hoping to start doing ultra distance stuff in the near future. There's a run called the Greenland Trail 50k run. It might be a little longer than a marathon but it's a meager start.

Anyway, here's my newest acquisition to help me keep hydrated on these long runs building up to 50 km.



It's an awesome trail running specific hydration backpack. Plus it holds my new digital camera that I'll be using to post pictures on here of my epic runs.
