A Rough Twist
As many here know- I run in any conditions. Rain, snow, sleet, and HEAT HEAT HEAT. At least it feels that hot right now. My last blog was earning my ugly, which was me running in the heat to train for races in the heat. My last short race w... Read more

Before I start, let me acknowledge Sususuzzzie. Your status was the driving thoughts behind this. Hope you don't mind me borrowing from you.

Pics from my phone
One lucky aspect of life is that it's easy for me to get away. Less than a mile away is a small park with a 3/4 mile path around the outside. The outside of the path is mostly unkempt with trees, weeds, and grass growing naturally. Here are a... Read more

Life just loves the curve ball.
I worked at it and tried. Even when life was changing the parameters, pushing forward was still the answer.
The 40 person party ran late, bar was very busy, and instead of getting help- I was overworking and giving help. By the time work ... Read more
