The State of Things: Its the end of the world as we know it… or is it?

The State of Things Its the end of the world as we know it… *shrug* One perspective is the math. If we take growth models and apply some of the statistics we have on the corona virus and extrapolate that the contagion lives on some surfaces up to 9 days, is airborne, it takes days-weeks to incubate in a host,  and can infect people before hosts show symptoms then it stands to reason that its been making its way through major population centers from mid-January and at this point will probably end up as ubiquitous as the flu.

Into The Swing of Things

Some Thoughts Into The Swing of Things Life happens and often it is sincerely lacking in any semblance of justice, fairness, or other placated ideals that really only exist in bubbles. So, what do we do when life happens?

Ultra Training Week #1 2020

24 Miles Ultra Training Update – Week It has been a great week for running in Colorado, nothing but sunshine where I am at, if not a bit windy, but I’ve managed to get 24 miles in the first week out. My knee seems stronger with each run as I focus more and more on mechanics. The week felt pretty great – it was nice to be back to running! I’m chiseling away at all of the multitude of pieces – the miles, the cold, the nutrition, the fasting, cross training, and all the technical pieces to eventual make videos
