This past Saturday carried a certain import for me in that it marks a transition of sorts.

In training for the Marine Corp Marathon, we do our long runs on Saturday mornings and this past weekend we logged 13+ miles. The reason this is a transition is that going forward, each ensuing Saturday run (with the exception of a couple of step backs) will mark a new distance record for me.

I’ll be entering un-chartered waters as they say.

Another reason this past weekend serves as a transition is that my Saturday Guy status is over. After approximately 7 months of being off on Saturdays, I am changing positions within the company and as a result will once again return to the world where TGIF means nothing.

C’est la vie.

Good Bye Saturday Tim. You had a good run for seven months.

I used to have an "un-chartered waters dance" that I did every time I hit a new mile! I even talked about it....way back here http://30yofseeksmarathontorun.blogspot.com/2006/01/8-miles.html (hope that link works!)

Sorry about the TGIF...it was a good run while you had it (no pun intended...I promise!)

Best of luck in the "uncharted waters"- how exciting for you though!
And for you it will be TGIS!!!!
