The most frequent updates I’ve been giving recently are training updates. Now here’s an update of a different kind - an app update ;)
FitFriend 1.4 has been released today.
“American snobs like to trace their high-born descent from the pilgrims, or the Revolutionary War heroes. Australian snobs trace their low-born descent from the British underclass sent here for stealing underwear. That, in a nutshell, describes the essential difference between the two countries.”
“Optimism isn’t about pretending to be happy in a bad situation. Optimism is about confronting a bad situation and turning it around!”
I just can’t update on this blog right now, and if I was to be real I’d say I can’t even see the point.
This is my outlet for startup and tech related blogging. But running is taking up all of my passion for blogging.
I have a lot more experience with running (since 1996) than running a startup (since 2013…if you can even call a party of 1 a startup). Yes, this is part of the drive I have to do something running related for a living. That’s the dream.
While the rest of my time is taken up with:
1) A real job from an actual employer, of which I’ve had to go back to. Luckily, I took my time and for once I haven’t found a trainwreck of a company. It’s actually a place where I can learn a shitload!
2) Running training. I’m currently on the crux on being in the form of my life. Good things happen I guess when you don’t rush so much that your body breaks down after 3 months of training (I see the value in applying this mindset to building products too).
3) Maintaining and moving forward with the FitFriend app. There is still so much more I want to do there. So much that I won’t be able to get to do this year, but I will get to a few things.
Excluding relaxation time with my wife, and any family and friends here in Toronto.
I’d love to update this blog with startup insights from the bottom, work-life balance when you’ve gone back to the grind, future insights on what’s next, and even tech tutorials (must’ve been at least a year since I’ve done one of those!).
But for now I’ve fallen out of love with blogging for anything non-running related.
Blogging on FitFriend is a fun outlet for me, and is needed. Blogging here, isn’t either one of those right now.
