Ride for wonder. Ride for joy.
Ride for freedom. Ride for speed.
Ride to get home, or to get away.
Ride for friendship. Ride for love.
Ride to remember. Ride to believe.
Whatever your reason—ride!
Here's wishing you a full year of great ones

With Elm Creek being so icy, did errands riding the fat tire yesterday. Off to the bank and then post office and back. Only 10 miles but felt good to get out and ride.
Can't ride outdoors everyday, so Indoor riding today - new Sufferfest video gave me a solid 50 minute workout!

The cool down of ISMAGIATT (It seems like a good idea at the time), is an old aussie poem that about Mulga Bill. Take a listen and hope you enjoy. I know I did.

Great run outside today with Lisa McDonough Millam, Shelly Ferguson Leciejewski, Coco Russell and Cindi. Granted they had already run 4 miles before we started but super pace - I hit a goal set last year to hit 5Ks in in 30 minutes and did it today - even with the hill repeats. I don't think i would have been able to keep up with them in their first four mile pace. Thanks folks!

Didn't have a long ride today out at Elm Creek. My feet started to get cold - could have something to do with driving the 35+ lb green machine bike through the woods at a slow pace. No falls to report, just slow. Thanks Ken McFarlane and Kenny for riding with me.

Did about 4 miles in x-country skiing out at Elm Creek with Deb today. Good workout. Lots of kids on the tubing hill. Saw one tube launch off the ground. I can only imagine how that would feel to me once one hits the ground. I'll stick to the skis and just move along slowly.

Ran today with Shelly Ferguson Leciejewski, Coco Russell and Michelle out towards Bunker. They were planning on 10 miles and figured I'd tag alone for 5 of them. By the time I turned off and headed back I had 6.61 miles. Who would have thunk! Good run with no rain - just couple slick spots on the trail. Thanks again ladies for letting me tag along.

Another early Saturday morning run - 8.24 miles (13.52 km). Was an out and back route and when we were facing the wind, we were hidden via trails in the trees. Thanks again Shelly Ferguson Leciejewski and Coco Russell, alway enjoy running with you two.

Whew! 10.45 miles today - longest run ever, but didn't feel too bad afterwards. Thanks for great route today Shelly Ferguson Leciejewski, Cindi Scavone Rose, Coco Russell and Michelle. Was really surprised that folks let their dogs run out on the frozen Mississippi. Then there are the fellows sitting in lawn chairs just a fishing away on the Trout lake there in park. Maybe they didn't notice the wind? I sure did at times!

good run today - 7 miles and change. ran out at elm creek - surprised how much snow/ice were still there in spots. mostly on the non-sun facing / shaded sides. anyway - was good work out with saturday morning runners ( Lisa McDonough Millam, Shelly Ferguson Leciejewski, Coco Russell, Cindy Ludwig, Cindi Scavone Rose , Leann Lehmann and others). Most were were heading out for a total of 14 plus.

18 feb 17

out at 6:00 am with the lifetime group again (Shelly Ferguson Leciejewski, Lisa McDonough Millam, Coco Russell, Cindy Ludwig). Felt a little off today as the shoes seem to be giving up some cushion, but still got in 9+ miles. When I got home, the Fedex delivered a new pair of Asiscs gels so that should help the feet.
Thanks everyone for great run. Hope your 16 miles were as good as your first 9.8
