RJR’s Blog, Closed

On Saturday, I ran a 5K in Brooklyn. This is not going to be a race report about it. The writing of such a race report had actually been jotted down in one of my many overflowing to-do lists. But then, as the days passed and I felt less and less enthusiastic about putting pen to paper, I realized that it was silly to have this task hanging over my head when there was nothing mandatory about it.

In the five years that I’ve had this blog open, I’ve received at least hundreds, probably thousands, of thoughtful comments. They helped me immeasurably on my path from non-runner to runner and for that, I thank you all. And, I hope to learn more from you all in dialogue elsewhere.

Of course, I’m not really “going away.” You can still find my writing in plenty of places, including in bursts 140 characters or less on Twitter as @runRJR. Maybe someday I’ll get all my tweets bound into a nice leather bound book. Probably not.

(There is a collection of notes up here on the website, but they’re just a loose collection of random notes, as the name would imply.)
