I've decided that I want to start and finish my book for the 2009 races I ran as soon as possible. I get excited about scrapping my races, and I would love to get caught up before I get too many races in during 2010.
I honestly don't think it'll take too terribly long since I didn't run any races until June due to my pesky injury, and the only one that I really have a ton of pictures from is the Chicago marathon.
Nonetheless, it'll take a while I'm sure. I've been trying to pick out which pictures need to go in the book so that I can get them printed and ready. It's really fun looking back on the pictures a bit after the races and reflecting on what I felt like that day. It's when I do things like this that I really realize just how much I like how running has become a major part of my life.
With any luck, I'll get the book done quickly and then can try to knock out my senior year. I still believe that if I could ever finish scrapping college that I could try to get caught up to present day a lot more quickly. By scrapping races in a separate album, all it really leaves to scrapbook from the past 5 years since college are some trips and weddings as well as a few other occasional photo-worthy events.
Scrapbooking my life is definitely not a priority to me. If it doesn't get done, it doesn't get done. Nonetheless, I enjoy it... and it feels good getting it done. So here's to hoping that eventually... one day... even if it's years away... I'll get caught up and find myself in a position where it's a little easier to keep the books up to date.
But we'll see.
