These Onions Are So Sweet To Taste... Peppers Are Perfect & Super Mild 

Waiting For That "Ping " 

Little Out Of Order But This Was The Harvest Before Labor Day Weekend  

Sealing The Lids That Contain Pure Goodness 

Stir Fry For Dinner While All Of This Took Place 

And Oh My God ...... Do You See This.... This Is One Of Three Or So Original Photos Of Shadow Boy.... I Believe This Was One Of His FIRST Sitting Photos.... He Was Only 3 Months Old Here And We Just Celebrated His 11th Year Old Birthday Month.... Its blowing my mind that he is 11 now.

Wanna talk about loyal, this dog has put his life in front of mine a number of times. Granted, never a true life and death situation but in his model of the world it was. Like the many times a stray dog has approached, the territorial cat hissssss from under that abandoned vehicle, or that every elusive bunny bounding near by.

Countless times we have crashed out somewhere were he need to plop his hind quarters ON me as to sleep looking towards danger. Moments later, he is rubbing his wet nose user the sheet as we play that every entertaining "under the covers" game. He has eaten with enthusiasm during every meal and never says no to a car ride. 11.... WoW.... Who knows how many times he has slowly worked himself into a roll over position for a belly scratch. Not a belly rub BUT a belly/rib scratch down. Sure.... You Get It... I Love My Dog

But do you know true companionship??? Maybe you have with another human?? Maybe you do with your current pet. Maybe you were lucky enough to have interacted with a verity pets throughout your life time?? Maybe you were a Zoology Major in Santa Barbra California?????

Anyway, I don't know were I am going with this but its just that its the last day of the Boy Dog's Birthday Month and I am happily sad.

When Sadie Girl was aging and suffering with Liver Cancer, I had the Shadow Boy to help me comprehend the cycle of life. So thats it!! I am at a crossroads. The Boy Dog is the one and only at this point. Thats what I have been processing these past few days leading up to blogging on this eve.
Even better, its my own aging process that has been on my mind. That damn selfish me Me ME attitude.

Like I had mentioned before, that client barking out about wanting more money, more time is all I would ever ask for.

Working Through The Weekend

Radio Show: Epic radio show yesterday. Why??? Because it rocked!! Opened the Sunday Matinee with Its A Small World. Who Does That??? ME!!! From there, Van Morrison > Bruce Hornsby > Dr Hook. 

Throughout the three hours, comedian Jim Gaffigan over children's lullabies covering Black Sabbath, Mr Blotto mash ups of Johnny Cash's Folsom Prison into Pinball Wizard. Here is a link to that SBD Copy in 2002. 

Also played clips from the Jimmy Fallon Tonights Show featuring Jeff Foxworthy passing a kidney stone, stand up by Jenny Zigrino, Hashtags, and Thank You Notes.

Turned it up with some Moe's Yodelittle from 1999's CD L. That whole double CD is live recordings from 1999 Summers Tour. Tooting my own horn here..... Gr8 Phuc-N Show.... And YES... I Recorded It And Will Happily Send You A Copy .... You will be able to hear my Baseball Takes, Prop Bets from Vegas back in February, Horoscopes, and Crazy Classic Rock Parodies

Office:What a Summer It Was!!! My office mate spends her summers in Crested Butte and I had full access to the office 24/7. Amazing how many times I received a text about meeting in the office in the next hour or so. 

One of my highlights was seeing a kid from about 2 years ago. He is now a Sophomore and hit a major growth spurt. I personally wish he wasn't playing football but I would NEVER share that with him or his father. He has been suffering from Planter Fasciitis and I know exactly how to work with this. Ortho is brilliant work and I see these symptoms all the time.

Another highlight from last week was a first time client thats neck was all jacked up. She was referred to me, way cool. She came in full of old engrams and in full on Fight or Flight mode. I simply instructed her to remove her shoes and lay in the supine position. I began with ankles and feet and allowed her to feel ALL of the table with her own body. Wonderful session and she cried with joy. Her husband couldn't believe his eyes. Weeks of pain, 30 min later, her own occipital ridge found its axis ( C1 ) over its atlas ( C2 ) for pain-free support.

Last highlight was at a birthday party. Long story short, I explained Ortho-Bionomy by showing vertical demonstrations. I learned this as the Diva Release. Its not really a release but its way cool. It basically looks like this..... Your standing and I am behind. My hand/finger is on "that spot "above their hips/low back and I ask you to SLOWLY look towards the opposite shoulder until I fell a softening of tissue. I then ask you to SLOWLY lift your chin until a SHIFT happens. I lightly have my hand on that same shoulder and very lightly on that spot. The person finishes is a Diva Pose From Old Black & White High School Photos. Hints, The Diva.

Again, this is not an adjustment or release. Its just a shift in the body that others can feel. From there, we can discuss the nervous system, rebooting, positional releases, re-education inside your own body, organ nerve supplies, etc. 

Training: Must say," My Mind Is In A Quandary Right Now!" What I Mean Is..... Sept 9th is open registration for the Bryce 50 miler. Well, 100, 50, 50K, Marathon, etc. But my damn mind won't let the 50 miler go. Am I READY For A 50 Miler????

The personal trainer has been fantastic and my form wasn't as bad as I originally thought. He makes very small adjustments during my exercises. Like a side plank, my hips weren't in line with my shoulders at all. Once he turned OR opened my hips, my Glenohumeral Joint went pain-free. So Cool.

He also helped me with my knee alinement during squats, lunges, and leg lifts/crunches. What I appreciated was the fact that he could see the minor movements that were causing post workout aches and pains. He also kept referring me to less weight when I picked up a heavier dumbbells. MEANING, he heard me during our interview!!!

I have been adding some distance and time on the dread mill workouts. I have been using a "random" program that adds changes of speeds and but not the incline. I do find it rather rewarding leading with my chest, standing tall, and changing strides. 

Been foam rolling the sh*t out of my body all the time. During TV commercials, before bed, after walking the Boy Dog, its really helped me relax those small little stagnant areas, and hasn't been as painful lately. Thats Cool

Any Advice About Bryce Would Be Much Appreciated,

The Boy Dog & I Splurged

Exactly what I was looking for, Exactly what I needed, & The beginning of something exciting.

We splurged by renting a little cabin. The basic needs of a simple shower, a kitchen for proper meals, and a sweet bed for the Boy Dog and I to crash out on. All the comforts of home!!

Early morning trails runs were much easier after a full nights rest. Super motivated and foam rolling out the body was energizing. The body felt amazingly stronger and way hydrated.

The first day was just a hike on the trail right behind the cabin that I didn't know even existed. The trail was pretty much straight up with a few switch back interruptions. In other words, a calf burner!!

Beautiful, past peak, wildflowers littered the trail. The Boy Dog & I clipped along and my ears rang due to the peacefulness of the forest.

Day two was a fantastic lung burning 15.3 mile trail run. The Boy Dog & I could have easily broke 4 hours but we had a few sights to see and a massive deuce to pick up. I have been picking up Shadows waste for 11 years now and THAT ONE was unreal. We had just started out and he plopped one right there. So I picked it up and stashed it along the trail. Yes, retrieved it on our return.

The legs felt so solid and I know that focusing on my gluts and hammies are paying off. What my old coach FAILED to understand is that my muscle train was out of balance. He had no concept of stronger cycling muscles and extremely weak "running" muscles and how to correct them.

I did fast hike over the rocky sections and downhills. We cruised along the flats at about an 8 min mile pace and I attacked two "hills" in particular. The other inclines were fast hiking or casual Boy Dog time. Hints, the 4:07:16 time. The good news, my old PR was 4:29!!!

The last day was a sweet hike up the Old Mill Road to check out the working Marble Mine. I really didn't think it would take as long as it did but super worthy day. The views along the road are pretty stellar and should be seen by everyones eyes. The only draw back was the dip-Sh*t Texans hauling A$$ towards a dead end road.

It was rather crazy seeing Colorado plates driving slow, a Georgia plate creating NO dust, and you could hear the Texas A-Hole before you see them. And where are they going?? Where do they need to be?? Mother BLEEP RRRRRRRs

Other than that, beautiful get-a-way!!! Pounded the quads, worked the calves, no weight calisthenics, foam rolling, and best of all, 24 hours worth the Boy Dog during his Birthday Month.

ON AIR TONIGHT AT 6:30PM.... www dot kafmradio dot org ..... Will Be Airing Umphreys McGee ... Moe .... Bassnectar ..... Mr Blotto .... And Maybe Some Alice In Chains Unplugged  

Yo White Folks..... Brilliant Article Here.... Phuc That Athlete .... I Absolutely 100% Despise This Dickhead... And Phuc-U NBC For Giving This JackA$$ All That Coverage

The Boy Dog Thinking The Mail Lady Brought Him Some Ice Cream.

The Dudes Tix For Rio. Yesterday Was Handball, Today Was Water Polo, & Tomorrow Rhythmic Gymnastics.
Shadow Boy & I splurged & rented a "cabin" in Marble for his Birthday Month. Perfect get-a-way & what a location to gaze up at the Perseid Meteor Shower. You didnt even have to find the Constellation Leo because there were streaking meteors EVERYWHERE!! Talk About Awesome!!!

I set the GoPro up 3 different days, will begin the time lapse editing soon, now that the MAC Book Pro is healthy again. I have some photos of the cabin, some early morning training runs, afternoon hikes, & of the ever so famous Crystal (clear) River.

The other big news ....... Drum Roll..... I hired a Trainer back in July.... Stoked with him during the interview. He was way pleased that I didn't have the stereotypical answers to his questions. My Goals: form!!! I explained that I am beginning to use heavier weights & really need someone to fine tune my alinement & form. My goals for strengthening: Gluts, Hams, & Core. The rest will be gravy.

NEXT RADIO SHOWS: Aug 25th at 6:30pm ( Jam Bands & Cover Tunes ) Aug 28th at NooN ( Classic B-Side Rock & Wide Verity For Sure )
