Well, I am back.....back from vacation that is. You see I was gone for 3 weeks from work. First the Vegas trip. Then it was off to Beloit Kansas to work out there for a week at Mitchell County Hospital. I always enjoy my trips out there. Just a different pace. While I was out there I put in 50 miles for that week. Not bad considering the daily temps were in the 100's. Well as they say "Whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger!"
After the week in Beloit it was off to Belgium for a weeks vacation with Kristen and her daughter Bailey. We had a wonderful time there. Going in I knew I wouldn't get the mileage I normally get for the week but I needed a week to back off a little and get my legs back under me. I ended up with 34 miles for last week.
Ok, I know, I know, I should have more to write about since I haven't been on here for two weeks. But, hey...training calls!!!! I still have MILES TO GO!!!! With the 84 miles from the 2 weeks above that puts me at 280 miles to go to Leadville or 379 miles down the road from Lecompton. WOW, I reached a milestone!!! I am over half way!!!! And with just a little over 6 weeks to go until leadville. With 2 weeks of taper I have only 4.5 weeks of hard training left. I am going to do this!! Just need to keep putting the work in!!
Oh, before I forget---379 miles from my house is Kanorado KANSAS/COLORADO. I am actually 2 miles from crossing into COLORADO!! I better get myself out the door and into Colorado!!
