A 5K In Beautiful Meeker Colorado For The 4th of July

Its been such a damn good month so far. Like Scary Good

Adding the miles in the saddle towards the 500 miles goal for this month. Been spending a fair amount of time on the River Trail along The "Not So" Mighty Colorado. Check out the photos below

Feeling stronger at the gym after a couple weeks off during Country Jam. I started back at it with calisthenics, for the most part, more reps than real weight once I went that way. Only took about a week to find my groove again. My arms didn't fatigue as much but my chest took a hit. Legs and Back felt excellent under heavier loads. So Thats Cool

The Boy Dog is a month shy of 13 years old and he slept through the fireworks for the first time ever. I couldn't believe it. Been taking him out into the mountains to avoid the fireworks but not this year. I returned on the 4th and him and I played all afternoon. He completely crashed out about an hour before the major Stoker Stadium Show.

Interesting June & Numbers

June was a blur of a month with so many activities/obligations to attest to. My practice was grown quite a bit this year and I found myself in the office a lot this month. MAD Racing hosted a huge Grand Enduro the first weekend of the month, Ridgeway mid month, and we then traveled to the magical valley of Crested Butte to finish on a high note. I miraculously pulled off 7 FULL days of work during Country Jam on about 20 hours of sleep. The Boy Dog & I walked our No Excuse Loop every morning and sometimes at night when HE was up for it. I neglected the gym for about half the month BUT thankfully I have been spending hours on the saddle clearing my own headspace. Yes, June Flew By!!

JUNE Numbers:
429 Miles On The Bike
21.4 Miles On The Treadmill
2 Actual Days Off
3,151 Push Ups For The Year

And The Most Important Number Of All

                      43 Miles Walking w/the Boy Dog

One down fall here is that I haven't been able to host a radio show for quite some time now. My creative side is burning as I have two projects that I am jonesing to share over the radio waves. The Radio Station is my drug ( best hobby ever ). The Program Director reached out a number of times in June but I truly haven't had the time to volunteer or help out. I even sent him an e-mail explaining my schedule and to please NOT be discouraged with my consist " Can't Do It" right now.

Another a little hiccup that took place in June, actually really shifted my perspective for the better, found clarity, which has allowed me to achieved a number of personal goals with a quiet mind. Every gorgeous evening of each Solstice, I go name by name in my address book, sending out positive affirmations. I received a number of replays, some were related to the day, others were thankful, but the one person I really wanted to hear from sent a lame A$$ response. I was on work day number 17 in a row and was rather disappointed to not have the opportunity to share with, catch up with, or even explore the best possibilities. But it is what it is and I choose not to read much more into it at that time.

Then, two days later, a text came in that confused the Sh*t out of me. It was a very fragmented thought and after annualizing this reply a few times, my mind spiraled a weeeee bit out of control. I questioned my own judgment and came to the realization that there would never be any answers. Self discovered a valuable lesson here, riding my bike never felt so good, and texting has never been my strong suit. When I have a client that sends me a text about availability, I reply with just my phone number. You Know What I Mean

I enjoy comic relief, I enjoy sharing moments in time, I love what I do, I seek new discoveries, and I simply don't have the time to allow someone else to puke up drama like back in high school. I realized that there is no need to subscribe to this type of behavior. I kinda found a new sense on relief after kicking my self down for a few days. I felt the anxiety lift from my shoulders and I am enjoying my cheerful life style again.

I personally think its not all that difficult to embrace compassion or understanding the perspective from someone else's shoes. I thought it was a curse way back when but I completely believe that its a treasured gift. To truly be present with someone and keep judgment at bay. Simply waking up happy, sharing energy, and closing out the day with a job well done. Thats Satisfying For Sure.

So how does one start a new month off on the right foot??? Iris was born on July 1st at 5:20am. She was actually born on her due date!?!?!? The Dude is a Grandfather for the second time and here he is with his flag from Thailand. His grandson Avery now has a baby sister to look after. Baby Daddy & Baby Mommy are both doing well and this birthing experience went much smoother than the last time.

I am hoping to meet Iris before heading out this week. I am also excited about observing Avery Charles with these new set of rules to the family tree dynamics. Let's watch these kids grow up and become influential members of society. Life Is Good

1) Topping 500 riding miles during this month
2) Becoming more reliable in B&H's world as they will need all the help they can get 
3) When distractions arise, remain present and investigate options 
4) Comfort The Boy Dog And Enjoy Each And Every Day 
5) Remind those around me of their strong attributes
