Buckled down and had a solid week in the gym. Strava put me at 36.4 miles for the week with a run tomorrow and a road ride Sunday. Took it way easy lifting but still felt like I was in control. Will lift again tomorrow night and take Sunday off from the weights.
Tomorrow night is the BIG crazy Demolition Derby at the fair grounds. Thats always a hoot!! Will do a BBQ at FJ's and might just have a few brews with the twins. Must Snap Photos For Perth
Last night, at KAFM's Radio Room, Moors & McCumber performed their last American show before they jet off to Ireland. The time lapse above turned out pretty well and has had a number of views. So Thats Cool
I am hosting The World Harmony Show Sunday the 30th of July at 9am Mountain Time Zone. Check out KAFM's Live Link HERE to stream and watch The Boy Dog on the web cam. Reggae On
Tomorrow will have an ugly early start. SH*T Fire. Heading up the Grand Mesa to volunteer during the Grand Mesa 100. This will help pay for next years entry. I am familiar with those trails already and am already looking forward to it. Obviously I won't be running the 100 miler but the 30K is so on my radar like a hummingbird zooms in on a red tip feeder.
Tooting my own horn without trying to sound creepy .... It was awesome walking back into the gym this week and having so many people ask, comment, or welcome me back in. I have always taken the time to listen to the Silver Sneakers so I kind of expected that from them but all the random folks that wanted to hear about whats up in my world really put a smile on my face. Sometimes we all forget about the impact that we (project??) during our daily routines.
So I encourage you to randomly say hello or compliment others throughout your weekend. No expectations, just offer a pleasant remark and carry on. Try It
Until The Next Time,

Hosting Bluegrass & Beyond today at 4pm Mountain Time Zone. Stoked to be air on as I will be recapping my summer adventures. So its a more of a Beyond than bluegrass. Well, Bluegrass with a lot of chatter and some Shel Silverstein mixed in. Its going to be epic
Speaking of adventures, traveling by air is rather a bitch these days. I flew a lot during the 90's and air travel just isn't the same. Oh Well
And flying, July has flown by!! And all the cocktails have caught up with me for sure. Way Fat & Lazy these days. Hell, Dennis and Rob from AUS land this Thursday so no rest for the liver anytime soon.
Spent my Birthday in Lake Havasu and pretty much haven't been to the gym all month. Weighed in yesterday and I was surprised to only be at 181.7 pounds. The drag was the 38 1/2 inches around my belly button. All that beer is just sitting here in my gut. Maybe I should switch to wine
Feeling lazy, DAMN YOU Pittbrownie!! Saw he signed up for the Lead King 25K and he will probably finish in under three hours, with a bum foot, sore back, and a cold brew in his hand. That guy is a machine and has a cool A$$ dog!! Check out his blog and new dog photos
So I have big or BIGGLY goals for the moth of August. May recorded 336 miles, June produced 367 miles, and 176.3 biking miles that month as well. July, an ugly 62 miles(23 on the spin bike Monday) and most of those miles were walking The Boy Dog. Ouch
Yesterday was a spin and an easy lift day. Posted 22.9 miles in 55 min on the bike and I didn't feel bad but didn't feel great. I definitely didn't have quick fiber firing muscles. Having said that, will be adding some serious miles on the bike from here on out. Realistically, trail running might not be in the cards until after the twins leave. And Thats OK
Anyway, this summer has been awesome, fulfilling, and rewarding for sure. I have enjoyed my own perspectives and look forward to spending a few weeks with the twins. Will be walking the Boy Dog on the No Excuse Loop nightly
Seek The Best Possible Outcome,

The Poor Boy Dog Doesn't Dig Fireworks. He tried out his new Thunder Vest during the weekend and I became rather hopeful because all seemed well with the neighborhood pops. Friday seemed smooth and I almost fell into an optimistic state. Saturday, not so much. The 4th, Sh*T Fire
Radio Show on Wednesday was pretty damn cool. I was asked to sub in on Puttin' Down The Roots and I was in total "wing it " mode. Turned out it was a Gr8 Show!! About every third song drummed up a phone call. That Rocks .... Hint Hint ... Mostly a B-Side Classic Rock Show
Next Stop Sunny San Diego!! Heading for the coastline town of Pacific Beach, fresh produce at the farmers market in OB, and a whole hell of a lot of nothing on tap. I have been reaching out to friends and will be meeting at the Coronado Brewery on the 12th of July. Cant Wait
