Essence of Life

Energy is the essence of life. Every day you decide how you are going to use it by knowing what you want and what it takes to reach that goal, and by maintaining focus. Oprah Winfrey
This top picture was taken at the Big Sur expo. This is a blog follower friend punkrock runner. He is a running machine :) running a lot of marathons week after week. I hope to get him to come over to the darkside where he belongs. He's already racing every weekend, I think he needs to start running Ultras.
Had a great long run yesterday we were out for 7 hours. Ran with Mike, Ben and Matt.
It was a beautiful day. I did get blisters again!!! same spot as the others that just healed :(
They do have plenty of time to heal before Miwok.

The wild flowers were so cool..They were popping like popcorn ..

I am excited Andy will be arriving Thursday night..Rocky and I can't wait.
We are going to have fun.
Well I'm backing to doing a tabata workout today. I will follow crossfit oneworlds workout tomorrow.
I took a month off from going to my box. Just didn't have money and could only go a few times this past month cause I was out of town. I still always do the workouts at home or do my own. There is no excuses to not do crossfit it can be done anywhere anytime.

Hi Catra - been following your blog for a long time, :-). Any advice on how to ease into Crossfit? In decent shape, but not superfit. Btw, am your age & you are my hero! Thanks, Kim

Those look like some beautiful trails to run on. I hope your feet heal up quick.

Hey...I am going to break down and buy some skirts! I never thought I would but I am going to do it. Do the Commitment skirts run true to size, or smaller or larger. Thanks for the tip and savings!

I was a real pleasure finally meeting you and I have to tell you that your positive energy is contagious. Rarely do I meet anyone as fun and upbeat as you and I look forward to hitting the trails with you soon.

I posted the other photo on my blog and praised your running awesomeness :D.

Take care - Ron
