My Howl - Feb. 22- 28

Something new: 
Beginning this week I will not howl at you every single day about my training. I'm sure that it gets old (I do it for me mostly - to track my training progress). I will continue post random thoughts here, but as far as my training goes, I will only post a once a week summary - from today on; unless I race during the week (then probably an additional race report). Hopefully this will help keep my blog more interesting and your inbox less cluttered. I'm sure as I have been learning how to use Blogger, I have annoyed some of my friends/followers. This is certainly not my intention and I do not want to lose any of the those that do follow me ;-) - so S T A Y  and explore my space; please comment or email me and let me know how I am doing.

Sympathy card:
At times I probably come off as an ego-maniac and well, I probably am. But the truth is, as my healing continues, typing my thoughts, creating content and re-learning graphic design and stuff really advances my progress. So don't hate me, follow my blog, share it, comment and tell me I suck but mostly read my rants. Thank you. Living with a traumatic brain injury is hard - it is really hard and every single day I face new challenges to old problems. Sometimes I scream really loud, for unknown reasons and at random times. Poor, poor Mimi. She burdens so much more than she deserves to. I hope that she continues to let me stay...
