Outside, when I can




What happens when you complete a dream……….Well, you just start thinking about another one.

Fell on some ice yesterday.

My wrist is a little swollen and sore. Will give it a day or two before I feel like I need to have it looked at. This type injury would not stop me from starting or finishing my trip to Monterey California.
Been hurt a few times training. Never did I hurt my body when I was laying on the couch watching TV. But I was killing my spirit. This is just one of those things you handle.


Little bit of swelling from a pretty rough fall yesterday


11 days

until we take off heading to Monterey.

2012 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 12,000 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 20 years to get that many views.

The Tortoise and the Hare…

They raced, the rabbit got to the finish line way ahead of the turtle.

The rabbit came to the turtle after the race and said “we both showed up and We Both Did Our Best, We Both Won”

I just saw me running

beside the road with Wilson. I slowed down and rolled my window down and gave me the thumbs up and smiled and said “Never Give Up”

David in the ninth grade..

We walked by the track. We watched a guy run the hurdles. David said he wanted to do that. When nobody was looking he tried. He fell over the first one. He told me that one day he would be able to do this. In the 11th grade I watched him win the low hurdle event at an Invitational in Jacksonville Florida.

We are all so awesome.

I look around at things that we accomplish. We are all so awesome.
