Let’s Do This Now

I’ve been on the Couch 2 5K program since Dec. 28 and it’s going smoothly. It’s been great to be able to get running even with my body.

Work has been, well, work. I’m getting more and more responsibility every day and I am learning something new everyday, too.

My trips to New York City and the Dominican Republic are rapidly approaching. It will be good to spend some time outside of this city, especially after the 21 inches of snow we received yesterday. Thanks for that, Mother Nature. (Kurt Cobain was right, you are a whore.)

Baseball is just about to get into full swing, and I cannot wait — I am coaching 13U kids again (their first full season on the big diamond). Our clinics started Jan. 7, and while I’ll miss the last two weeks of clinics, we will be ready to go for indoor practices starting early February — that’s were the fun begins with bunt coverages, first and thirds, pickoffs, baserunning, and more. Yee haw!

I am going to do a full edit of the book writing project I started. Let’s not get crazy and call it anything official.

I was reading through my LiveJournal the other day, and holy crap did I post a lot in that thing. I posted nearly every day, and if not every day every week. This is what I am going to aim to do with this thing. Get myself writing every day. That will, hopefully, do two things; not let my writing get rusty, and help me along with my writing project. Time will tell, though. Time will tell.

Al Golden was a great hire for the University of Miami football team. While no Jon Gruden, he’s a great recruiter — as he’s proven at Temple — which is exactly what the program needs. Let’s just hope he’s got a great eye for quarterbacks, something Larry Coker or Randy Shannon didn’t have.

I am really digging Korn – Live from Rock Am Ring 2006 at the moment. That bootleg has such a great setlist, which includes, “Counting on Me,” one of my favorite Korn songs.

Strangely enough, I do not miss working in sports. Between the spectacular hours and the fact that I can actually watch sporting events, this new position has been boss. I do, however, miss the people in sports. That, as they say, is a no-brainer. A major plus for me is that my new boss works in a very similar manner to my old boss: Here’s your task; let me know when you’ve completed it. Neither are the type to constantly look over your shoulder or ask you every thirty minutes how your task is going.

That’s pretty much it for now. I’ve lost steam and stuff to write about.

Catch you on the flip side.
