The newest addition to my house is another border collie.  I had almost forgotten what owning a puppy is like.

I'm Back

It’s been way too long since I’ve written anything here, but life gets in the way sometimes, and that has certainly been the case as of late.  Between coaching and teaching, things have been busy.  So much has happened in the past 2 months – pacing Liza and Larry at Leadville, working an aid station all through the night at one of Joe P’s races, my struggle to finish Wasatch (report to come, I promise), and more all-night pacing Jean at Cactus Rose this past weekend.  And that’s just the running-related events!  I must admit that my own running has taken a back seat for a number of reasons lately, but with the cooler weather I have found a renewed sense of purpose in my running.  I am enjoying being on the trails again, having fun training for my next adventure – the Bandera 100K.  I hope to get back to writing regularly, as it swerves as a great outlet for me.  Until then, I’m off to grade papers.
