Well hello there!

So ok I know it has been a rrrrrreeeeeeaaaaaallllllyyyyyy long time since I had posted anything on my old blog. When it was all said and done I decided it was time to take it down. I felt it was time to start anew. Well where the heck have I been you might ask? Well home working out, using the elliptical at the gym. I have not put in any real road miles in a long time(months actually). Why well because I had a real bad set back with my hip post surgery. Things were going great with rehab and then getting back on the road to put in some milage and BAM! one morning I couldn't move. I couldnt put any weight on my hip at all. Bending down was also not an option. I saw my surgeon and he took some x-rays and he said that they looked fine and that it is most likely inflamation in the joint. So I stayed away from everything for a good month. I started back up at the gym and when I felt confident enough I started using the elliptical. Things have been going really good so far(until I got this sinus infection that I am almost over)so hopefully the road miles will start up soon. Now my diet has been a complete disaster and I have gained back a lot of weight that I had taken off from my years of running. Years to lose it only a few months to gain it right back. OH well such is life. Now on to some Team Voice business. First off I want to congratulate all who finished their respective races at the WDW Marathon Weekend recently especially Amanda! I was so inspired by what you did and all you had to deal with to finish the Goofy. Your finish has been a big insperation to me to get things going again and I want to say thanks. I would post this on your blog, but for some reason blogger will not let me comment on your blog. So how have things in Team Voice land been going? I have not seen any emails nothing has been really posted on the blog (virtualvoiceevents.blogspot.com) or heard of any skype meets. Are we still going strong? Is there still a Team Voice? I truely do hope so on the last one because your guys support really helped me push through some tuff crap in my running career. On that note I will end it here. Sorry about the blog it is under construction and I hope to get it in order soon. Till then "KEEP MOVING FORWARD!"


  1. Hey howdy hey there pardner. Here's to hoping you have a much much better year. Keep on jogging toward the second street sign to the right and straight on till morning.

  2. Glad your back. Glad you're better. Last year was rough on all of us. Have to add this to my site.
    At some point we all should get together and Skype. Would be fun. As long as you don't bite anyone! :D

  3. Mike - I am soooo glad to hear from you and soooo glad you're back on the blogosphere!

    I'm glad that the silliness of my doing the Goofy sick was inspiring, but really - I don't recommend it for everyone :).

    Team Voice is still out there and I for one will always be around to help out any one that wants to hear me babble!

    I would love to see up step up our game on the Make a Wish fund raising. I have a story to post on my blog soon that will explain why I am even more passionate than before about this.

  4. Glad you're back in the blogosphere! I think we really do need a Skype meet, have been kind of a disjointed team as of late. Probably need a reset where TV is concerned. Nfeel free to hit me on email or text whenever! Looking forward to Mike-Speed regaining old form to give me some competition out there ;-)
