The weather has been up and down, hot and cold! I have running in shorts and sweating a lot during lunch these days. IT is way tougher running in the heat that is for sure.
I look back to the January days where it was zero outside and I was running in the dark! What a change.
Stay with it, it may get hot but it is good to see the changes everyday from teh outside.

I have been eating right and taking care of my running and stretching. I got a new pair of climbing shoes with a slightly different shape. That change in shape has made my right foot a little sore and I have been monitoring it daily. I finally realized that it was not my running shoe doing it.
I am itching to try the big mountain run/climb/hike that I have planned this summer. I am intimidated and nervous about it. It will have 30,000ft of vertical gain and close to 50 miles of terrain most of it being off trail.
Woot Woot, stay motivated and keep after it.

Feeling run down and sick this week. I am fighting a chest cold. Last week Orson got sick and then I was coaching too many baseball games at night. Then on the weekend we went outside on the water and then rock climbing. It all just added up to get me a little bit ill. That just means a shorter walk during the day. I can keep this going and you can too!

I am feeling good as I move over terrain and my legs are not an issue on climb and hike days. I am hoping that the snow conditions allow me to attempt my mountain run/hike/climb this summer.
On a side note, it is a sad day finding out that 3 wonderful people/climbers/alpinists passed yesterday in the mountains. We need to remember that when we play in the hills that no matter how experienced we think we are that the conditions are always more challenging to determine that what appears on the surface. That doesn’t mean don’t play, it just means that no matter how acceptable the risks are in front of us, there are still risks. Sending my best to the families of those affected.
Check out the link and video below. I am in it climbing around town.
Grand Junction is a great place to be for all outdoor activities and for it’s small town community. Hope is see you join us!

I have felt tired legs this last week. The weather switched to being pretty warm. Maybe that is why. I am looking forward to the summer when I get to try my mountain link up.
I sent my latest roof crack and am coaching baseball. So much to do. I have to get photos shot of my latest new climbs so look forward to that.
Summer is getting shored up and I look forward to camping with my kids, establishing climbs, seeing my family in Ohio and all the other great summer things like fishing, swimming and climbing.
Keep running and stay motivated!

We are into April and I am feeling low from not getting enough protein in my diet. I know because I am tracking my meals on myfitnesspal.com.
I highly recommend you beginning to record everything you eat and see how you are doing with the website. Within three weeks of documenting your eating you will see the trends that you can then decide how to correct of verify that you are doing well with respect to eating. I knew that I was low due to how I felt after this past month of training. I should feel a bit stronger, but I don’t due to not recovering as I should.
Rest is important but equally important is eating right! See you on the trail.

It finally got hot and it is tough to run in the heat. I will be needing to run early in the morning when I can now that the temperature has increased!
I can not believe that I have been going for 3 months straight! WOW. I hope you who have been doing this at home are proud of yourself. You should be.
I am looking forward to my summer challenge of a non stop 50 mile mountain and peak challenge. Have those goals and keep charging!
Spring Break starts at the end of this week! I am so happy. I will do some more hikes rather than runs due to all the climbing that I will get to do.
