Really just falling in love with running all over again. Crazy to think I ran my first half marathon 8 and a half years ago! Glad it's part of my life again.

Glad you are healthy and running again. Before long you will be cranking out those crazy fast time again.
I am finally healthy again and can get back to serious training. I lost a lot of fitness after breaking my ankle and then a bad achilles tendon. But I am getting back into it now and think I am going to have a very good track season. I am going to be running the 800m and 1500m this season. It will be my last year of high school, so I want it to be a good season. The new school year starts next month in Japan.
I set my blog to private here. I still keep track of my workouts and everything, but I set it to private. After that incident on the blog (you know what I am talking about) no one reads my blog and no one leaves comments so I decided it was not worth being around anymore. I still do comment on some blogs though.
Everyone that I was close to on the blog, are no longer around, but I still keep in contact with many of them. Zack writes to me a lot and I hear from Collin a lot. I think most of the friends I had on here have gone on missions or have moved on from running.
Anyway, good luck to you Eugene, and hang in there.

Thanks for writing all that out for me Eva! it means a lot. I'm not sure if you've tried to reach out to me or not since I last emailed you but I don't use that email much anymore now that I have a school email. It's firstname.lastname@example.org, you should hit me up so I can talk to you. I'm not trying to be too public about my plans for running until I'm in better shape, but I'd love to tell you about them.
It is rough that most of our blog friends are gone serving their missions, but the majority of them should be back this year, hopefully they'll continue blogging. Either way, I believe I'm here to stay, I have goals and such now so I'm pretty motivated to keep running.
I don't want to influence your opinion on anything, but I hope you make your blog public again someday. It was tough to see at the time, and I'm sure even harder to experience, but I hope you realize you're an extremely talented runner and it was just a mistake some bloggers made because you were running superb workouts with no real races under your belt. This is my 5th year on the blog now, so I'm pretty familiar with the community so I can promise the offenders of that situation just assumed your times to be false because it's surprising to see someone that fast. I'm sure with an verifiable race under your belt for them to see they would be nothing but supportive, because they've been supportive of me and my training was never as good as yours. However, as long as you're staying private, feel free to email me about anything going on running-wise for you, good or bad, and I'll try to give my best input. I may not be the fastest on the blog(yet!) but I consider myself a true student of this sport and as far as knowledgable runners go, I like to consider myself one of them. Or if you just need to talk to someone.
Hope you're well. :)
