A New Blog

Last January, when Beard and Pigtails was just a twinkle in my eye, I was considering firing up multiple blogs.  Each tab at the top of B&P would be its own separate blog: Beard Builds, Beard Hikes, Beard Runs, etc.  But hosting a bunch of blogs eats time and money.  And I'm sometimes lazy, so kept 'er simple and started off with just B&P.

I like where B&P's at now.  But am also ready for some "augmentation".  I'll keep B&P spinning, but would also like to start writing a bunch of running-related articles.  Per a recommendation from a friend, and rather than boring you readers that don't give a rat's ass about sweaty runs, I'm happy to announce I'll be creating a new running blog! 

The domain name is registered and I'm chiseling out the design now.  Keeping a lid on it for now, other than to say it's named after what occurs when a runner craps their shorts during an intense workout due to poor blood supply to the gut (a common problem with long distance runners).

Excited about this one, hoping to pull in a different demographic of readers.  You know, the fit, smelly type that poop their pants in the middle of a hellacious run.

Drop a comment if you have suggestions for things you'd like to see in the new blog.  I think it'd be fun to remotely coach a beginner through their first marathon, posting pictures and progress, from couch rat to 26.2 mile road warrior.  I'll also discreetly e-guide them through their first gastrointestinal disaster.

    I found your blog on YHL (the only DIY blog I read), so I am stoked to see you are a runner as well! Can't wait to see/read the new running blog

    1. I should probably get on that, time crunch's in the way of getting the blog going.
