Reasons I run #17: Pumpkin Cheesecake

So yesterday for my birthday, my wife ordered an amazing pumpkin cheesecake.. one of the best I've had (next to the Chocolate Guinness version from the same bakery).  So yes, cheese cake is decadent, and not necessarily the healthiest, but so what? It tastes amazing, and I don't eat one every day!



The point is, there are always special occasions, and reasons to live life and enjoy these kinds of things.  Where we get in trouble is when every day becomes a special occasion :-). …

Let's Eat!.....

A quick note before the Thanksgiving holiday tomorrow.  We are in the midst of the holiday season, filled with great celebrations, and more often than not, filled with lots of food centric activities.  Don't get me wrong, I love to eat and I love good food.... I just hope that more people take the time to truly "know" what they are eating. Before I jump on a soapbox, please understand that I am not a dietician or physician (although it would be fun to play one on TV). I'm just a normal guy…

Rim Rock Marathon Relay

Jaclyn writes:

 

The Rim Rock Marathon was an amazing experience, and probably one of my favorite races this year.  Having driven through Grand Junction and Fruita to raft Ruby Horse Thief or Westwater Canyon in the past, I hadn't thought much about the Colorado National Monument, until this race.  We anticipated doing well as a relay team and were hoping for first place.  Compared to the top marathon runners, we anticipated being in the top ten or twenty.  Up until this race,…

Turkey Trot Predict 5K, and CUPCAKES!

Today I participated in the Pikes Peak Road Runner's, Turkey Trot Predict 5K, which was great fun.  The goal of the run is to predict your finishing time, and the 6 closest to their times win a turkey.  So each runner took off at the time they predicted as the clock ran backwards.  If everyone was exactly right, every runner would finish at the same time.  It was a beautiful fall day in Colorado Springs... in the…

Moonlighting... and a review of Injinji toe socks.

After almost two weeks, I was finally able to do the Manitou Incline . Between the weather and traveling, I've missed my twice weekly ritual.  It was an amazing morning... a very bright 1/2 to 3/4 moon, not much of a breeze, and temps I would guess to be around 35F (2C).



I wore my headlamp, but realized halfway up that I didn't need it with all the moonlight, and with the time change, the sun was close to…

Happy Veteran's Day, and going minimalist in Las Vegas!

Just a quick note today to thank all of those who are, or have served our country.  Especially, my dad, and my father-in-law.



Also, we are on a short trip to Las Vegas this week, celebrating the 75th birthday of our best friend's mom.  Crazy day in Vegas, as it appears everyone is here for a birthday or a wedding!



One of the cooler things about this trip is the runs I did yesterday and this morning. Great temps for running, and another good friend from Seattle (who also…

Keeping it in perspective!

Nice story Aaron.  Always important to consider perspective.......I try to remember when I work with those men who have broken lives and relationships.  But I have to remember;  that includes almost everyone (in varying degrees of course).

 

Haven't heard about you running lately.  Are you still pretty active?

Be blessed in all you do!!!

Dad
