I am so looking forward to reading your blogs, Mike. Oh my gosh, your near splat sounds crazy. Did you feel like a cartoon character? The last time I did the same thing (almost bit it while on the road, with traffic all around) I swear my legs were churning in the air, like the Roadrunner (only not so fast). Seriously, it's the exercise, right? I swear that is what makes all the difference between going down in a heap or having a fighting chance at regaining your balance and avoiding disaster. I am sorry you got hurt in the process but thankful to hear you were not hurt worse, and, as you know, it could have been a LOT worse. I could totally picture the incident, by the way - you have great descriptive powers : ). I am glad to hear you two had such a great trip, it sounds wonderful. By the way, eating Key Lime pie in Key West is actually a little fantasy of mine, I have to say. I am fascinated by that area but have never actually been there. There is a Ragnar Race that runs through that area - you should sign up for a team!!! Okay, I woke at 3:30 am (not by choice - stupid insomnia), was up at 4, at the gym by 5:15am, took the dogs for a trail romp, did yard work, house work, etc etc. I have definitely earned my 9pm bedtime. Goodnight...I will be looking for those blogs! : )

Thank you for reading my fitness blog. I am SO stealing your quote about not living as long as possible but making things possible as long as you live. I LOVE that! I also love that you continually challenge yourself, to balance on things, to jump over things. I do that, too. I think people make themselves older than they need to, when they start constantly telling themselves "I can't". I focus on making sure my mind is in the same place as my body, because, in my experience, that is when I get injured. But, I don't intend to let myself off the hook in terms of challenging myself physically. I have even to (slowly, slowly) begun to run again because I am going to do the Girlfriend's Half Marathon in October in Vancouver, Washington. Except, I am going to run the QUARTER marathon, which is a fancy way of saying 10k emoticon So, I am slowly building back up to 6+miles. How is your running going?I hope all is well. Take care.

Thanks for reading my blog. I always hesitate before posting a blog because it sort of feels like walking around town in one's skivvies, but...a promise is a promise and I feel like if one person can gain one helpful insight from my experiences, it is worth that "exposed" feeling that comes after posting a blog. And, besides, what's a little discomfort, right? So.....how was your trip?! I hope you had a ton of fun and extra sleep and lots of relaxation and that you met fun people from other places. I would love for you to blog about your trip so we (well, me especially) can travel vicariously : ) emoticon emoticon
