Running like a god..............or Forrest Gump.
For those that don't know me, I generally don't run good, as I'm a tilt monkey. I can play the game of poker ok, but need to address the mind set stuff. Had a reasonably steady year at the tables last year before a whole heap of life stuff caught up with me in the final few months (and also January this year) and the BR came a tumbling down as my game went to pieces. My 2015 poker journey was blogged here Poker 2015
However, while I'd love to run like a god at the tables, I'm far more likely to be successful at running like Forrest Gump on the roads (and trails). Yep, I like to run. Haven't done nearly enough the past few months with cricket and the previously mentioned 'life stuff' but still had a great 2015 overall where blogging my running here Running 2015 was greatly aided by you guys who came along for the ride and provided so much encouragement. In the end, despite limited runs late in the year, I still easily achieved my goals for the year.
So what's this journey all about? I dunno - I'll make it up (or work it out) as I go. In essence, it will be my 2016 journey on all things poker, running, cricket and life related. I'm keeping it all in here. Will I post a bad beat or 2? Undoubtedly. However, I will try not to. I hope to keep the poker updates limited to graphs and stats for analysis and over lengthier periods of times, so that I'm not getting bogged down in the results of session to session and day to day. They might be weekly, fortnightly or monthly. We'll work it out. Outside of that, I'll try to post hands that are actually interesting, that put me in difficult spots, and ask for your opinions - as well as using the HH forum.
In a following post when home, I'll post up how I'm going this year so far, how I ended up last year and what games I'm starting with in 2016.
This thread will also track my running activities through training, kilometers I'm putting in and the journey to and results of the events I enter in to. I have just recently entered my first event for this year. It isn't until August and I'm sure I'll actually do a few others before this, however it is one I'm so excited for. I'll post some details later but it is a 20km trail run through some beautiful mountainous scenery.
Can't wait to be honest..... beyond that I'm still working out some running goals. To run further than last year...and how much further........and should I run a full marathon?
So if you can be bothered then please check in. I'll try to make the poker stuff constructive and hope the running and all other life related stuff is interesting.
That's it for now. Check in soon.
