What an awesome Fire Festival!!! Telluride hosted the 1st Annual Fire Festival Last Weekend!! Friday Morning started of w/packing the car, meeting my my Biz ( MAD RACING ) partner, & a store run after remembering items in the cupboard. oooops!
And away we went!! Renee, The Blue Z, & I drove on down & then up to Telluride. Dallas Pass was gorgeous in deed with blue sky, fresh snow, & epic company in the car. Renee has a friend that allowed us to crash out at his place & easy access to the festival.
Friday night was an absolute blast!! Renee's friend Pam showed up & they were able to pal around & The Z & I hung out & socialized w/the artist. We kinda had an in because one of the featured artist was Jamie Vaida. Jamie lived here in GJ & we all go way back together. He even made the comment about how this event WILL happen again next year because its been a killer reunion for him.
Saturday went really well w/a relaxing morning, excellent home made breakfast, & a cup of joe in the sun. I threw together a veggie chili concoction in the crockpot for dinner. I love traveling w/my Crock & having dinner made a few hours later. Plus, the people that come & go are always blown away by the aroma in the room. The three of us were very fortunate to meet up w/Jamie around 4pm & help him move the art car to Main St & fire ( literally ) up the car. Back in December, I was involved w/firing the car up & knew what to expect, which played out well for us as the propane tank ran out. Jamie & I did a quick change out & the roof was back on fire!!! Way Cool!! Very Smooth & Jamie was quite thankful w/my timing. That was the main highlight of the night for me because all the artist & rich folk went to the evening gala that was $200 a tix. Not For Us??!!??
We did have a blast that night walking around & sipping on cocktails under a crystal clear night…. HINT HINT…. Saw the comet FINALLY!!! The late evening was star gazing, crazy 8's card game, & a game of cribbage. Fantastic way to end the weekend!!!
I was getting worked!! My lungs were on fire!!! But I felt Gr8 & The Boy Dog was stoked!!!
The month isn't over yet but I have not picked up a new client. I have been working & enjoying watching clients have break throughs. I am still working w/my double to-2-be hip replacement client at the pool. I had a very successful day today w/my clients & one has been w/me from back in my massage schooling days. She has been having some knee stuff going on so I balanced her pelvis & talked w/her ankles & feet. She was way into the Ortho & couldn't believe that I was working her w/o pain, unlike a neuromuscular session we have done in the past. But there are a few more days to this month so we will see if a new face shows up in the office. I felt optimistic about it, that door will open when it needs to, right?!?!?!
Training for the Silverton Marathon has been going just as planed. A lot of slow & controlled core work, no excuse loops w/the Boy Dog everyday, & then the snowshoeing. At first, I thought I was really bummed out because of the beers & spirits in T-Ride BUT its what I kinda needed. A break from training for a weekend. I still ate well ( Renee & I both brought a ton of food ) & stretched out a lot. I didn't bring my foam roller but relaxed into my stretches & felt pretty good. I probably looked goofy as hell but some of our walks around town I would lunge into my stride & did some calf raises on the curb while talking w/others. That kinda goofy stuff.
I am heading into Crossroads Downtown tomorrow w/pen & paper to start lifting again. Totally looking forward to lifting weights again & targeting different muscle groups. I am planing on slow & controlled & injury free. My plan is to use a much lighter weight & reps of 15-20. CONTROLLED!! Pretty sure I will just go station to station to build a schedule & chart me numbers. Then, start back w/free weights when I am stronger & can control the weights independently.
If our weather continues to be this nice, Ol' Midnight might see some pavement. I am still on the commuter bike to the office, gym, & grocery store. But a road ride could treat me well. Maybe even a Mt Bike Ride?!?!?! Hold On Turbo
This Thursday the 22nd I have a radio show. I am thinking that I am going w/more Jam Bands this time around. Maybe, I was thinking of playing an original by the artist into a cover tune. These will all be from live shows of coarse. Ether way, its going to be awesome. Feel free to stream live at www dot kafmradio dot org from 6:30pm - 9pm mountain time zone.
My "big" goal is to have a conversation w/my mom w/eye opening results. Thats a big one for sure. I have a pretty good idea of how I am going to approach this. We will see. Other goals will be at the gym, have a kick A$$ radio show, schedule a meeting w/Footprints Animal Hospital, make phone calls & follow up MAD Racing phone calls, & hit the Mesa one more time before the weekend w/the The Boy Dog. I did achieve a Meatless Monday goal today. It was a kale, black eye pea, recipe from my cooking light magazine. Shadow Boy wasn't all that impressed because he didn't get to try it & wondered why the BBQ was fired up. "Ah Sh*T!" He says
