Last week was a total bust as far as my half marathon training goes. I know that the inaugural Asheville Half Marathon at Biltmore Estate will be fine. I pushed out 8 miles today so I know that I will be able to run a half in a month.

Most of my movement of late has been shoveling. The approximately 15 inches that we ended up with last week caused 5.5 hours of shoveling over a two day period. The snow, in the end, was piled so high that I barely lift the shovel up high enough to remove the last of the snow. I was to the point where I had no choice but to carry snow further away than normal to be able to get it off the driveway.

You can only imagine how thrilled I was when it started snowing yesterday. First, it started while I was at a gig. That meant I had to drive home in it. The roads were ugly when I left The Binghamton Club but I did the smart thing and stayed on Main Street. The highway had more accidents than the in town roads, even though plenty of the in town roads were in worse shape. For some reason, people understand that snow means slow down in town but not on the highway.

What is your favorite way to move? I would love to take a night and just go out and dance all night. That is probably not going to happen soon but who knows.
