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.
