What I've Been Up To

It’s been a while since the last time I’ve posted anything on here so I figured I’d give a little bit of an update as to what I’ve been up to.

The Redesign

This has been in the works for some time now.

Tracking My Runs

This year, I’m really starting to do some longer races. I’ve already run Broad Street (10 miles), and have 2 more half-marathons and then a full marathon in November. Since I’ve started running back in 2010, I’ve been using Runkeeper on my phone to track my runs to give myself an idea how far and how fast I’m running. It’s a pretty nice little app and service using your phone’s GPS to track how you’re doing and overlaying your path over Google Maps. But as I’ve been running more and participating in some longer races, I’ve noticed that its accuracy was starting to become questionable.

Back with Wordpress

At the end of January I decided to make the switch to the Ghost blogging platform. I had heard good things about it and decided to move over to it. Well, this past week I decided I wanted to expand a bit more with how I blog and realized that Ghost really wasn’t going to work for what I needed. Given that and my limited knowledge of node.js, I decided that I’d be better served moving back to WordPress as my platform since I am familiar with PHP and its inner workings.

Run Forest Run!

Well, it’s official, this November I will be running my first full marathon. On November 23, 2014 I will be running the Philadelphia Marathon.
