A perfect day for running lost.
Tuesday, September 24, 2013     

When I got home from Center of the Nation Series, a lot of work was waiting for me. No one had gone shopping so we were out of milk, fruit, and lots of stuff I need to stay on track. And! She(WMBO) had started a bathroom renovation just be... Read more
A good weekend after a long running week.
Sunday, September 22, 2013     

I did nothing yesterday but watch Breaking Bad on Netflix. Today I put in four hours on a bathroom remodel ... I have *got* to block HGTV. At least She is not asking me to turn our home into "open concept" like everyone wants on those real ... Read more

Having just finished Mainly Marathon's Center of the Nation Series last week and the Dust Bowl Series in March, I have some reflections on those events. I call them events... Read more
Nebraska and done. Home again.
Saturday, September 21, 2013     

Today was the last day of the Center of the Nation Series. And it was a lot of fun. It was in Chadron NE about a four and a half hour drive from Denver, which drive I had to make after the race was over. There was a spirit of saying goodbye... Read more

Today, Thursday, on the Center of the Nation Series, we were in Montana. The moon was full and so bright I used my sun visor. It was neat to see the moon light shin... Read more

Wednesday, September 18, 2013     

The video relates to later in the story. And it's a good story I think. Read on. This morning coming to the race: I started today early enough to get me to the Wyoming race site by 6:25 according to the GPS. And really that's all I had... Read more
South Dakota: Done!
Wednesday, September 18, 2013     

Today I walked up to the Belle Fourche SD Chamber of Commerce from my hotel, about a mile, and we ran our races. Number to in a series of five this week. Today I was better rested than I was yesterday morning. I had a really good run, at under 2... Read more
North Dakota: done
Monday, September 16, 2013     

Another state down in my quest for 50 states half marathons. Saturday only count toward 100 overall half marathons. But today's Center of the Nation Series Day 1 in Bowman ND crossed North Dakota off the list. 27/100 overall half mar... Read more
Driving from Boulder to North Dakota.
Sunday, September 15, 2013     

The trip to Bowman ND this morning was nothing if not uneventful. It was just a grueling 8:30 of driving. The first three hours or so were in a driving rain. But there were no road closures or washouts to deal with. Once I passed Cheyenne, the s... Read more
Area 13.1 Denver is in the books.
Sunday, September 15, 2013     

I just got in from the Area 13.1 Half Marathon less than an hour ago. This one was run south of Denver in Castle Rock. It's a night race. Very different. I finished in 2:23:44, good enough for second in my age group Men 60-65. And with all ... Read more

Dave was home again this morning. Overnight, about midnight, a ten foot wall of water came down Fourmile Canyon (Creek?) into Boulder Creek. Boulder Creek is really a river that runs through the center of Boulder the town. This ten foot high wal... Read more
So glad I came to Denver on Tuesday ...
Thursday, September 12, 2013     

... and not on Thursday, as originally planned. I got up this morning about 8:00. From my outside I could hear a lot of sirens. Lafayette CO is not like living in the city nor even in Catonsville. Sirens are not so common here. Then I... Read more
So glad I have been to Denver before
Thursday, September 12, 2013     

I would like to start today's post off by telling you how beautiful the Rockies look from my son's back yard. I would like to say that but I cannot because it has been raining since I go here. No one's fault. And yet oddly enough ever... Read more
Mom is coming home; Denver, I have arrived ... for a few days anyway.
Wednesday, September 11, 2013     

First thing upon landing in Denver this afternoon, I checked my emails. What? Doesn't everyone? There was a not from my sister. Mom's Occupational and Physical Therapists both signe doff for her to go home after she visited her doctor on Th... Read more
Tuesday, September 10, 2013     

Mom has been steadily improving and the speech therapist is ready to let her go home. But the meeting with the Occupational and Physical Therapists did not get her the release date yet. When she was told this she had an out burst, "THAT'S BULLSH... Read more
