By the way

By the way, I started training for a half-marathon.

I'm not sure exactly how this will inform my writing, but it's something that I've been thinking about for a while now. I've been out of college for almost exactly a year, and let's face it: my level of in-shape-ness has been on a steady decline since my varsity cross country/soccer days in high school. Am I going to turn into one of those ridiculously buff people with absolutely no fat on their bodies? No. But I'm looking to get in good shape, to sleep better, to get high off all the endorphins, etc. etc. To be healthy. To negate the effects of my largely sedentary day job. To meet the requirements of my superhero application.

So I'm running. I don't particularly like running (I kind of loathe it, actually), but it's straightforward. Put one foot in front of the other. Plus, I spent way too much time getting a running playlist together for my iPod. You kind of have to use it once you do that.
