Really stupid...

If an idea is good, it's on the verge of being stupid. ~ Michel Gondry

I have always had this theory… get a group of people in a room, throw out a bunch of ideas and at the end of the night, look at your list to find the most idiotic and that's the one you should do.

This blog was spawned from one very stupid idea - run the Leadville 100. I gave that a shot in the summer of '07 - completed 73 miles - and survived. The blog lives on...

I need a vacation from my vacation...

Ride in the boot. The boot's full. ~ Wacky drunken Aussies on Australia Day

So I have been remiss about updating the blog. My apologies. The last couple of weeks have been hectic, to say the least. So here is a quick update with more details to come:

Canada was a blast. The first several days were REALLY cold and the conditions on the east side of the pass were marginal, at best. We skied Lake Louise, Kicking Horse and did one fairly short Backcountry day just west of Lake Louise above Sherbrooke Lake. Then the good times commenced when we went up to Roger's Pass for a couple of days. The avy conditions were a bit sketchy but we did manage to find several safe spots with good turns. All in all, a great trip.

Seth Hughes was with us and got some really great shots. Check out his site and the galleries:

So I think I am up to day 33 now for the season. Not too shabby.

My guts are still giving me grief (psoas and/or lower abs) so I am off to see Dr. Dave and Shirley to see if we can make more progress. They are definitely a lot better than in October but have still not gotten to the point where they are completely comfy so I haven't been running at all. Need to get this sorted out then get back on the program if I am going to stick to my plans for this year.

And in case you wanted to see an ad that didn't pass the "ready for Prime Time" test during this year's Super Bowl, here you go.

Ok. More details to come.
