Another two months between posts

I sense a theme.. an unintentional theme.

I keep thinking I need to update this thing, but just don't get around to it. As I said before, I've been busy, and the past two months have been no exception. Took a much needed vacation out west to South Dakota and Wyoming with stops at the Badlands, Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Devils Tower, and Bighorn National Forest where we crewed/cheered on friends at the Bighorn 100M/50M/50K.

It was an equally fun-filled yet draining 10 days, mostly spent in the car, but an amazing time. I hope to get out there again, either as a tourist or a participant in Bighorn 100.

Training has been on the up and up and I've been good about getting in to see the chiropractor for an adjustment (the neck appreciated some attention after the 34 hour drive back from WY) and ART. Stretching and foam rolling on my own is coming along too, and I'm trying to make it more of a priority. I'm all about getting and staying healthy.

It was a good weekend and a nice 'refresher' to train with others and learn additional cues. I'm all about continuous improvement and learning. It gave me some great ideas on how to train/coach and expand what I already do. Time to jot down my plans!

The theme of the summer seems to be 'how much stuff can I cram into a given day/week/month?' and I seem to be succeeding. Mornings are for working out or teaching CrossFit, days are for working, evenings are for leading the Capitol Endurance runs or working out, and weekends are jam packed with running around and, with the impending 50ks, working out. As I've done in the past, I plan to stick with the
