UPDATE: Right before my 59th birthday I completed my goal of summiting all 15 14,000 ft peaks in CA. It was one of the more radical descents as we missed the main shoot coming down, we had to climb out of it without ropes…we survived and had some celebratory beers when we arrived safely!
I’m not too interested in competing in endurance races any more. Originally I used races as motivation towards a goal. But after having done so many for 25+ years, I’d rather, for now, go get lost on the running trails in the mountains…
My business is through the roof! We have 23 events over the next eight months (Klein & Clark Sports produced endurance events.) It’s really great to see people put such a priority on their fitness now…. So I’m just trying to figure out how to balance my time with my business and my family. Speaking of my family, my youngest just started kindergarten. My ten-year-old is playing baseball, making straight A’s and has two girlfriends already!. My wife, Linda, is great, keeping us all in check. And fortunately, we’re all heading off for our annual Hawaii trip in about a month.
ADVICE: People get themselves put in that little box too often with everything in life! I think we can get caught compartmentalizing all too often. We feel like things have to be in a certain way… I think people need to break out of those boxes and push themselves out on the edge…do things that they wouldn’t normally do just to shock the subconscious. There’s more to life than the little box that you get yourself in.
If I was going to help someone new to exercising, I would take them for a hike. I’ve done it with quite a few parents from my son’s school–we get out on the trails for a hike… And now they hike all the time!
