It has been a fortnight since I last wrote. Seriously. I’ve been a busy, busy individual, but a happy one in many ways. I’m taking up the Healthy Challenge posed by a fellow author, swearing off the suds for 30 days beginning after the Cinco of Mayo festivities. For me this equates to beginning Saturday, so I’ll be a couple of days behind.
Secondly, I’ve been pushing my self directed rehab on my knee pretty intensely for the past couple of weeks; couple that with a healthier diet, and another workout that washed out but helped me get in a groove, and I’m getting into respectable shape again. Except the knee still hurts. Either way, the past two months have been me working out, eating better, and strengthening the leg, which has resulted in hitting sub 180 pounds for the first time since I initially injured my knee in 2008. Not that I put on a lot of weight, I just couldn’t do enough work rehabbing the knee to stay in shape.
And finally, the one little bit that just has me in stitches. I’m running for a political position of sorts. A small, but relatively important one in terms of the power the position has in determining the composition of the party. I have decided to run for the Republican party Precinct Delegate in the third precinct of Benton Charter Township. I actually don’t know if what I’m doing is running for the office so to speak, but my name will be on the primary ballot on August 3rd for the position, so if you live in the third precinct, vote for me.
I’ve been interested in political matters for much of my life and it seems this is one of the best ways for me to get involved a little more seriously. I look forward to the primary, and hopefully the next two years of my life involved in politics.
