For serious this time.

I have always wanted this blog to be better than an average blog. Now and then, maybe I succeed, but I imagine that would be easy to miss if you like blinking. Also, going a year or more between posts cannot be helping. The effort continues; this time I actually went and bought a domain. So...now I HAVE to post more often. Or at least that's the hope. More than that, my goal is to write more meaningful posts, maybe even ones that will be useful, entertaining, and/or thought provoking.

The first change, of course, is to the name. I got really sick of the angsty 90s song reference, but was too lazy for years to come up with something better. Finally I hit on the idea of something just describing my twin obsessions of running and reading. More time passed as I tried to think of something clever and catchy. At last I gave up and settled for a simple description of what I spend basically all of my time doing: I read much, and I run far. The only decision left was what order to put them in, a question I in fact got quite hung up on. I put reading first because it made the URL look more symmetrical and didn't give that annoying double "r."

More changes are on their way. I have some ideas. A few. I'm a decent writer and sometimes I think of worthwhile things to say.
