Season of Change

A season of change is certainly taking place, both literally as fall becomes imminent and figuratively as the racing season comes to a culmination, I look to welcome my second child into the world, and I look to expand my personal boundaries.

The wife and I had a nice chat yesterday about a whole manner of things, but mostly about change.

I've been in Colorado for 8 years now, and while I could be here 8 more, it is time to realign my life a bit better. I've never been the type of person to settle for anything and at times I find myself doing that. So, I've made a decision now is the time to better align my personal and professional adventures. It's about damn time.

With that, Leadville is five days away, my second son is due in 5 weeks, and life is good! Heading up to the high country Thursday morning. The fact that I'm running 100 miles this weekend hasn't quite sunken in yet. That will come.

I hear ya, definitely hasn't set in yet. We'll see you up there this week, heading up Thurs morning as well.

Good luck.

Race, and otherwise.

Luke- yup. See ya there.
GZ- will keep this space updated if anything concrete comes to fruition. For now the wheels are turning is all.

Digging this post!

Can't wait to run a few miles with you this Saturday and talk about how much it sucks changing diapers and how much it rocks having a newborn around the house.

see you at Fuller's house!

will probably be engaging in a 30 min jog out at the lake (where i'm camping) on thurs morning if you're interested.

oh and what do you mean about aligning personal/professional adventures? do you mean striking a balance or prioritizing one over the other?

Jaime- Just think, diapers don't even get bad until after they turn 1! Soon baby!

Brendan- Let's just say, I'm seeking an employer who produces items that make people want to get outside. More when I have it.
