February Album Writing Month (FAWM) is winding down. I have 13 of the 14 songs written and have started the 14th song. Several important things have happened this month as a result of attempting to write 14 songs in one month.

I'm ramping up my long run mileage some to get ready for the HAT 50K in March. This run was a little different in that I tried out my race strategy after about the first hour of running: I ran a mile and then stopped to walk for 45 seconds. I'm glad I practiced. It had some good things about it-- I was able to sustain a 7:50 - 8:30 mile pace much further into the run. And it was pretty damn hard to start running again after walking in the later miles.

The HAT Run 50K (31.1 Miles) is coming up on 21 March 2009 and I'm signed up for it. It will be my first (and perhaps last) ultramarathon. I say it might be my last because Sònia's just made it clear that she doesn't want me to disappear for an entire day while I'm running a race. Sigh. I can still run my 22 milers on the weekends, which I love doing.

I've written three songs so far for February Album Writing Month (FAWM). I'm pretty happy with them and have posted them to the music player on this blog.
FAWM is pretty similar to National Novel Writing Month, in which I've participated two years running. The idea behind FAWM is to write (and ideally record) 14 songs in the month of February.
