I have been busy


So yeah, if you haven’t been able to tell I have been fairly busy. Actually I went through a fairly large change in my career. I moved from development to IT Support. I still do a little bit of coding on the job and at home but my main focus is keeping the servers and network running.

It has been an on-the-job learning experience. I have to say that while I enjoy the simplicity of administering Microsoft servers their lack of flexibility and in consistency makes me batty.

I ran in a hill race about three weeks ago. I didn’t feel I was fully prepared for it but as it turned out I did a whole lot better than I was anticipating. I averaged a 9:11/mile pace, not terribly fast but I have been steadily getting better. I am registered to run in a 5-miler tomorrow but I am going to skip it since we finally have plumbing in our bathroom and putting floor down supersedes my hobby. 🙁

After the new year it will be time to start to get back into fighting condition to run in the half-marathon again. I ran a 2:08:00 last year, this year I will be shooting for a 1:55:00. I figure that shaving a minute off every mile for a pace of an 8:46 mile. Woohoo!

    Hmm, as much as I may not like to admit it, but I am a Network/System/Phone/Application admin. And the whole time I thought I was just the IT Manager..wait, maybe I am that too 🙁
