Just Truckin' Good Daddy.

A sign of spring: white legs and white snow courtesy of Mike


On Sunday I was joined by some new friends and old. Them kids were fast! I've got a little work to do on the "speed" side of things, but generally speaking I find the further I run, the slower I get. Back in the day, my legs had some speed - but these days I kind of move like a Kenworth truck. Strong, powerful and sturdy - with the potential for speed, but mostly stuck on cruise control. Kamren, Ed and Jen made us move a little bit faster than usual - and that's a good thing. Sometimes a girl needs to put the pedal to the medal - maybe in a few months my engine will respond, but in the mean time, I'm still cruisin' in the slow lane.

Fly Mike!

Ater the 35km on Friday, I took a break on Saturday and then ran for 4 hours on Sunday. Keith did NOT take a break: he rode his bike for 3.5 hours and got a 100km under his saddle. My husband has officially crossed the line into the world of exercised induced insanity and I'm so proud. Keith is in training for a "double Trans Rockies". This year he's going to do the 7 day Trans Rockies bike and then, he's following it up the next week with the Trans Rockies Run.

Hot Damn!

Ummmmmmmmmmm I think you're pretty fast so clearly these are people I can't go running with (unless they're comfy with letting me trail miles behind).

Keith is a god damn rock star and that's all I have to say about that.

Ummmmmmmmmm I think you're pretty much Keith's favorite person right now.

Thanks, Jo Lynn! I'm dreaming of some of those sweet Bay area trails. No Diablo for me (or anyone else!) this year - but I'm still dreamin' of California poppies!

Hi Kaz! At least you're still plodding. :)
