Aaron’s been doing a lot of mountain running, and has in fact topped out that peak to the right a few times in the past few weeks. I’ve been running some, and cross training some more as I’ve struggled with running injuries through the past few months.
Mountain biking is a great workout, unless early spring mud causes equipment failure, as in the picture above. It took me 20 minutes to get myself out of the clay-mud that I rode into because I had to keep stopping and scraping mud and twigs out of my brakes and off my tires to push my 80 lb. bike back up the hill and onto dry ground.
It was really fun riding fast back to my car though as that mud flipped up into my face and all over my legs and back.
We’ve enjoyed taking the kids out to dinner and spending time together as a family.
Taught ’em how to play mini-golf and Abe sank a hole in one on the 7th hole!! Breanne and Ali mostly enjoyed running around the glowy neon surroundings and rolling the ball around.

A fun, cold, race to the New Year with awesome people. Aaron ran barefoot in nothing but shorts and won the “coldest runner” award. Ash and Em ran together and we all hooted and hollered as 2010 rang in. Adam accomplished a great task: He did not puke after snacking on pizza, treats and whatever else all New Years Eve and then pushing the pace in the midnight race.
