I'm not grumpy all the time, just enough for people to think I am. I'm an almost frum, liberal, conservadox Jew who davens with Chabad. I love movies, music, chinese food, and working out. I'm training for a marathon and trying to quit smoking at the same time. Oh yeah, and on most days, I really hate my job.

First post, Intro, and today's training!

Hello world! Thanks for reading this blog. I'll try not to depress you to much.

So, I'm 28, newly observant, I smoke a pack a day, and I'm training for a marathon.
I learned a valuable lesson today about training. However far you run away from your house, that's how far you have to run back. What was supposed to be a quick 5k, turned into a 10k because I forgot that one thing. Oh yeah, and I smoked a cigarette while I was warming up. So, that last few miles really, really hurt. I know, that was dumb. Really dumb. Really really dumb.
But, the upshot is, I don't have to worry about making either of those mistakes again.

I'm kind of worried about training tomorrow. Tomorrow is a swimming day (1.5k in the water) and I'm also weighing in for the second time. Sunday I was at 215 on the dot. I want to be at 195 for the marathon, but I don't want to lose that 20 lbs. to quickly. So, I'm all worried that I'll either lose to much weight or I wont have lost a pound. I think I'll just go eat a few boiled eggs and a waffle. Breakfast for dinner always makes me feel better.
