Back after a break
Thursday, November 27, 2014      3 comments

Happy to report back to Spark after an extended break ... I spent the past number of months getting into the world of Facebook. Lots of fun there, but I have decided I'm capable of and interested in pursuing two major on-line forums, esp. given... Read more

Within this past week I enjoyed two celebratory meals - my 25th anniversary (! emoticon ) dinner, and lunch w... Read more
Primal start to 2014
Wednesday, January 01, 2014      5 comments

I -- better said, my whole family -- made a strong nutritional start to the new year. I should note that we didn't go out to any New Years Eve parties so we avoided the temptation of festive junk food. Stayed up watching "Dr. Who" videos with... Read more
We make the journey alone -- together.

I just read an article in "Trail Runner" magazine by a woman who did an amazing "fastpacking" trip around Lake Tahoe last July 4 week - 170 miles in 6 days (!!!) ... Read more

Yesterday I got the results back from a blood test I had done. My hemoglobin A1C (blood sugar) level was 5.7, up from 5.6 a year ago, and putting me officially in the "pre-diabetic" range. I'm obviously not pleased by this. On the other hand,... Read more

I came across this idea for a nice winter treat on Mark Sisson's website, "Mark's Daily Apple" - here is the link: www.marksdailyapple.com/

Passing up those holiday goodies

Well, 'tis the season. This past week my office has had cookies and pie free for the taking. I'm either too busy to look a second time, or making progress over the past year-plus in just not considering them. For that I am very thankful. Als... Read more
Back to running - looking for some good events in 2014
Monday, December 02, 2013      6 comments

Today I ran a simple four-mile road-run. There was a strong wind on the uphill stretch so I got a good workout before being blown back into town! This is actually the third run I've managed to string together in a week, so I am getting bac... Read more
Simple and good Thanksgiving
Friday, November 29, 2013      5 comments

Enjoyed a Thanksgiving at home and with the family. We had sunshine so we took advantage and walked dogs and horse, did a little on-line shopping to take advantage of the Thanksgiving sales (was it for this that the pilgrims sailed? ... Read more
Becoming used to becoming middle aged? Ruminations on my trail run
Saturday, June 01, 2013      4 comments

I ran a 10-K trail run this morning on our local E. Idaho "mountain." It was a great experience - temps in the 50s, wildflower season, running up and around woods and maintaining reasonable form and pace (finished in 1:00:29). This drew a good... Read more
Eight-mile trail run!
Sunday, May 12, 2013      4 comments

I had fun today! An eight-mile trail run by Liberty Lake (WA), just across the Idaho border. Beautiful trail (woods, waterfalls), weather, and a well-organized, hospitable, and laid-back event. I am definitely into trail running now - challen... Read more
Grappling with Boston (and Newtown)
Sunday, April 21, 2013      3 comments

Like most of you, I'm sure, I've been following this past week's drama in Boston with intense interest. I think that because I've been doing some distance running in the past few years, and can claim at least a degree of relationship to the fam... Read more
New life Question
Sunday, March 31, 2013      5 comments

Today is Easter Sunday, and this year it really sneaked up on me - or more truthfully, I was so (too) preoccupied by work deadlines that I didn't really pay attention until "suddenly, it was Easter!" Still, I've had some time to process and... Read more
Gawd, I love running
Sunday, March 17, 2013      8 comments

Just had to get this on record. Yesterday I went for a run, and it was one of those where I'd planned a relatively short 4+ miles but wound up going 6+ because it felt so good. A lot of this was because I was soaking in the scenery. It was on... Read more
