we've got some catching up to do

Wow I have SLACKED on the blogging.

I've had an interesting couple of months. I won't really delve too deeply into what's been going on, but instead focus on the positives. Because I'm a positive dude.

My running has continued, thank you for first 5k is next Saturday in the great city of Oxford. I'm very excited and a little nervous. I've had a nasty cold/virus for the past week and I can't seem to shake it. Tonight I ran a little via Wii Fit, and I hope to get back in the swing starting Monday (or Sunday, if everything goes well).

I had the opportunity to work this past weekend at a Disciple Now in Crowder/Batesville with my buddy Soul Train's youth guys. I had 6 super cool dudes stay with me in a very nice couple's home for the entire weekend. We had a blast, and I got to spend some good quality time in prayer and meditation. Sunday morning, after we had wrapped up, I was able to share with the Crowder kids a couple songs in worship. It was very fun and just what I needed.

And since my sickness this past week has turned me into a shut-in of sorts, I was able to sit down and come up with some great song ideas. I currently have two completed songs, ready for a full band treatment (hopefully soon) and another two that I'm still tweaking. I've always loved music, and to be able to write some has been such a fulfilling thing for me. I have only showed one person my first song, and he seemed very excited to hear it. Let's hope he wasn't just being nice.

Ben is also in the process of moving in with me, which is cool. He and I shared an apartment in Oxford a few years ago, so this is kind of a nostalgia trip. He's neat and I'm it's an interesting dynamic. But I'm glad he's moving in.

I have also signed up for another 5k in April which is held literally just outside my front door, here in Holly Springs. I'm hoping to do well in these two runs and then eventually start training for a half-marathon. But I'm trying not to count my chickens before they hatch, so to speak.

Well that's it for now. My medicine is kicking in and I don't want to ramble.

Thanks for reading.
