Every year around this time I start taking inventory of my life and looking back at what’s happened over the last year. This year was a bumpy ride for me and my family. I haven’t written about it up until now, but after 10 years of marriage, my wife and I separated at the end […]

Running fast but going nowhere

Posted by dwallace on February 1, 2010 in going nowhere, New Years Resolutions |

Well, I took my own advice today as far as a Resolution goes. I got up at the butt-crack of dawn and ran on the treadmill. Actually it was more of a walk with two minutes of running thrown in. Why would I subject myself to this early morning torture? Because I’m getting to the […]
