Yes, I'm still around

I'm still running. I'm still playing softball. I'm still selling real estate. Matter of fact, the real estate has really picked up. I'm listing properties every week and working with multiple buyers. This is a good thing and I'm hoping 2008 will be great. Last year was good, despite the slow down. Prices are still falling, but the townhome market seems to be brisk. And that is why I haven't been blogging as much as before. I hope to catch up on many of your blogs, as time allows.

Running? I've been getting in 3-5 mile runs 3-4 times a week. My knee isn't hurting, but it still is larger than it's cousin on the right side. I've not had much time to get in long runs and I doubt I am ready for the half marathon next weekend. I've missed the last two 5k's I wanted to run in. No sense in paying for a race when I don't feel like I can run it well.

Softball? The men's league I play in on Thursday night finished with a great tournment. We squeaked into second place on the last week of the 7 week season and finished with a 10 win, 4 loss season. Highlighted by shutting out the first place team 21-0. It was my first ever softball shut out as a pitcher. We played the tournament last Thursday. Won the first two games and had a 10-0 lead after the 1st ininng against the team we shut out earlier in the year. However, they came back to beat us 15-11. I played 2nd base all three games and had a great time. I like to pitch, but it's fun to get to play other infield positions.

The coed team I play on is 4-0. It's a 7 game season with a tournament and we should go undefeated. Which means another tee shirt. The picture above is some of my softball tees. You get them for finishing in the top two in the league.

Tonight I have a 5 mile run planned right before I sub in for another softball team. Hope all are doing well and good luck to those that are running races this weekend.

Hey Pat! Glad to hear things are going well for you in your workouts, softball, and the real estate market! I was hoping you were busy selling houses, and not off having knee surgery or something awful.

Never thought you got too far away. Glad to hear the market has been good for your. I'd think a lot of your competitors will be flushed out.
