It is raining and I am chillin'. I have had a super busy month and its not over yet. We got a new puppy, Ollie, and he is the coolest. Texas is still getting used to him, being the grumpy old dog, he isn't used to having a young whipper snapper running around! He is 16 weeks old and almost house broken. Waking me up around 4am to go outside to pee. I'd rather get up at 4 than clean up a mess anytime. It has been nice standing outside in the early hours of the morning. So quiet and peaceful. I think about lacing up my shoes and going for a night hike.
Running is going well. I'm a little bit bored with it this year though. I doubt I'll be doing anything epic, like the solo marathon I did last year. I can still remember the pain....
Been cutting and splitting firewood too. It is a constant process that I enjoy. Being out in the cold, the sound of the chainsaw, the smell of sawdust and oil. Love it.
I've been pondering my race/event/adventure calendar for 2015. It is looking like P111K, Pisgah MTB Stage Race and ORAMM are on the docket. After that I am planning on doing some bikepacking. Planning on planning ahead far enough to do a longer trip. TNGA still looms and now the VMTBT is out there! Exciting stuff!
Something else in the works too, but you'll have to wait for that.
