I don't write. There's a distinction there.
I won't bore you with the whole process, but the turnaround from concept to your computer is rarely over 4 or 5 hours for me. I look things over, tighten a few things up, teach a few classes, get distracted by something shiny, and then hit "PUBLISH POST".
Essentially, dear readers, you're reading a glorified rough draft. Sorry about that.
A few of us, however, are writers. They throw in coherent thought, edit numerous times, use big words correctly and use something called "proper grammar". One of these writers is Kristina over at Marathon Mama.
As you know, I normally like to trumpet my own successes here at ROATM, but I'll throw her a bone because she is on page 48 of the latest issue of Runner's World*! I haven't read it just yet due to the fact that I need to drop a check in the mail to renew, but I guarantee you I'm off to Whole Foods this weekend to stand by the cash register and read her article. If it's anything like her blog, she has hit one out of the park....again.
Not only that, but she was a guest on the (fledgling? defunct? sporadic?) Banned on the Run. You're welcome for that, Kristina.
This week's SSTIFYs should be pretty obvious. Well, obvious to those that read ROATM. If you're new here, you have a lot of catching up to do. Thanks to these two for the lyrics. 'preciate that.
Have a great weekend everyone. With any luck, yours truly will be running outside this weekend.
*It took great self-restraint to write the following: "She was young. She needed the work" "She did it so she could put herself through college." and "I wonder if I have to rotate the magazine 90 degrees like I do with my other magazines?"
