Advice for a wannabe runner?

At the beginning of 2013 I made five goals for myself to complete before the end of the year. One of those goals is to finish a 5K.

I've never been very athletic. In high school I was involved in theater and my rehearsals served as a good workout (I was always placed in a dancing role and after a two hour rehearsal my muscles could definitely feel it!), but that was about the extent of my physical activity.

In college I had friends who would run for relaxation, fun or stress relief. I admired them but never had time - well, never made time - to join them.

She shoots ... she scores?

I'm not really a sports person. I once called half-time "intermission."

But last year I discovered the fun associated with March Madness. Creating a bracket is interesting and that was definitely the most I've paid attention to college basketball. 

I am not really up on who's who among sports teams, so in order to participate in the March Madness mania last year I based my bracket on how much I liked the mascot/jersey color for each team.

On being a nerd

"Nerd" is a strange word. It conjures up different images to different people. Sometimes it means "Trekkie" and sometimes it means "academic." 

Some claim to be a nerd, some pretend not to like being nerdy and others would never be caught dead with that word attached to them.

I am most definitely a nerd. I was always focused on making the best grades in school and I don't mind a cleverly-placed "Star Wars" joke.

1 year, 7 month, 1 week, 1 day and some odd hours…

During my time with the Cabin, I have been able to skirt by without having to write one of these things.  However, the powers that be have informed me that I must now blog.  As a frame of reference, I have never had a blog prior to this, nor a twitter account or any such nonsense.  Hell, I rarely even update my status on Facebook.  Thus, I don’t know where to begin… but I’ll give it a whirl regardless.

Newtown tears not dry before assault weapons ban raised

Something has to be done.

Rush to ban assault weapons. Think that will do it?
