Distractions...Book Festival and Ironman

It may appear that I've been missing in action for a few weeks. Well, two happy distractions have been keeping me busy these last few months.

#1 - I'm on the committee for the Montgomery County Book Festival, which is even bigger and better this year. I'm the official blogger. So, I've been blogging nearly every day. We are announcing the authors one at a time to create suspense. Not only are we posting biographies, but we've interviewed all of them. There are 40 authors coming to this fabulous festival in February (totally unplanned alliteration there!). So, I have been blogging up a storm, just at another blog. Click below to check it out!

#2 - My personal friends and acquaintances know that I'm also a triathlete. Typically, the training doesn't take too much time away from blogging and reading. However this fall, I trained and raced my biggest event yet, Austin Ironman 70.3, which is 70.3 miles of swimming, biking and running, in case you aren't familiar with Ironman events. So...needless to say, this did take a lot of my time. But it was extra exhilarating running through the finish line!


But now that all that's over, at least until next season, I'll have more time and hope to be blogging more regularly here again.
