That's short for Take It and Run Thursday, a weekly feature over at the Runners' Lounge. This week's topic is...blogging.
I have been a blogger for a few years. Initially I started one as a way to keep family and close friends updated on what we were up to and out little rugrat. Back then I didn't use any particular service and hand-coded a pretty lame page on our mostly defunct family website.
From there I think I moved to MySpace...then Delphi, then here...I think. It wasn't long after I moved things here that I thought it would be fun to register a real domain, so on a whim I thought it would be fun to do a play on my RunningAHEAD.com username, zoom-zoom (which is in homage to my happy little Mazda 3 hatchback...completely unrelated to any running pace. plod-plod would be more appropriate given my typical running speed, or lack thereof).
Zoomylicious.com has been mostly a running journal from day 1. There's not a lot else to talk about as a SAHM, but running, talk of running, thinking of running (and associated gear-whoring) takes up most of my waking hours. It's amazing to me that 3 years after starting on this journey that I still have stuff to talk and think about. Running seems so simple...one foot in front of the other...repeat. But there's so much more to it than that. Every run is a new learning experience and with every race training cycle I pick up some new bits of knowledge that help me improve upon what I've already learned and done.
And injuries. There are always those nagging things to keep things interesting...and frustrating. As long as shoe manufacturers and Garmin keep changing their models and coming out with new ones there will be stuff to obsess over, too. ;)
