NOTHING like crossing the finish line of a marathon

oh my stars and garters

Right now I'm just doing whatever it takes to keep my head above water. I'll rethink everything in 4 months when I am finished with chemo and radiation and can rebuild my life.

So what is a Chi running book? Is it kinda like a zen thing where they try to teach you to run without thinking of how hard it is???

Breathing exercises?

Anyway .. thanks for the support about the potential new job!

Thanks for your comment on my "Pedaling a Bulldozer - Fat Bike" blog. I am used to cold and have really warm clothes. Colorado is a high desert so snow tends to be soft and fluffy. Humidity is low. The wind is often calm. Colorado is also a sunny place with cobalt blue skies.

Some places in the country are miserable when it is below freezing. Colorado is a winter playground because of sunny days and mild winter weather.

Keep Warm,

The Tofurkey Trot is over the river in Portland. It's not going to be very big ... more of a neighborhood run to benefit local organic farmers.

There are several "normal" Turkey Trots ... a couple are fair in size. But the really big run around here (besides the Portand and Eugene marathons) is the St Patrick's Day Shamrock Run. There's multiple distances and stuff. I believe the past year was roughly 30,000 runners/walkers ... followed by about 6K-7K pure walkers. It is a HUGE event.
