16 years!

What's that old saying... time flies? Not sure about that, but it does pass easily when you are enjoying yourself. It's nice to be able to share your life with someone who likes dogs, guns, running, off roading, prepping and being a smart ass. I am trying to think of someplace to go for dinner, but I have a nice pork loin in the fridge that is begging to be cooked. Perhaps some flowers or maybe a new leaf blower (hey, I'm practical and it's that time of year).

I'm sore today. The map I picked up of the running trails that I have been thinking about was a big help. It helped kick my butt for a few hours last night. The run was going to be longer but I didn't have my headlamp as it was an experimental terrain intel evening. 1 mile up, 800 foot elevation gain; 1.5 miles down 1200 foot elevation loss; 2.2 miles up, 2100 foot elevation gain; 3 mile down 1400 foot elevation loss. I actually assumed the 2.2 up would be fairly level but it was gnarly, steep, very cliff edge and since it was following a large stream it was cold and iced over.. this made my shirt really cold since it was wet.

I've got some stuff arriving today for storage so I was working on making some space last night but I didn't really make any progress and instead added another 30 days worth of water.

I need to make a costume for work, $100 prize money is worth the effort, that's another month or more of food storage!

I can't wait to do it again; the run and celebrating another anniversary. Where is my Motrin.

  1. Congratulations you cranky ol' running sod - i can't believe anybody is crazy enough to spend 16 yrs with you ... but out in the world you can find all kinds of crazy! i just hope that they are taking their daily anti-depressant...well...um...daily - bahahaha! naw' 'jes teasin witchya!

    now get out there and get some flowers and make a perfect meal, and after a shower - especially if you have gone for a run - tell them how fantastic they are. and then come back here and tell us how your night went - leaving out the gorey, sexy details of course as this blog is PG rated!
