1. Part of my weekend thus far. We went clamming this morning on an extremely stormy beach (no way in hell I was taking my phone out in driving rain so pic from the truck) and dug up about 10 massive clams before the wind just about blew me off my feet. Once the worst of the storm moved on I did a quick 4 miles along the water front. It was very windy and a bit rainy so when I took that selfie totally thought I was smiling instead of giving a lopsided grimace. I was pretty happy about running out there in crappy weather at any rate. Tomorrow: run on the bayside path in Astoria. It’ll be fantastic no matter what the weather does.

    Tomorrow I will be at the ocean and will probably have a very wet and cold run but I can’t wait anyway. Expect an obnoxious amount of pictures over the next few days!

    That post-run outfit looks high fashion
    I think it’s the white Swiftwik socks that really put the ensemble at high fashion level.

    Another fantastic evening run. I’ve been stopping a lot lately just to take in my surroundings and every time I’m stunned at how amazing Idaho can be. I could see mountain ranges that were 200 miles away to the northwest and miles of farm land and desert. The mountains around the city make me feel totally at home and comfortable and I never get sick of seeing them. Today’s 7 miles was just about being outside and soaking everything in.

    And a post-run pic just ‘cuz.

     
  7. I’m loving spring evening running. 68 degrees at sunset and the best mood boost ever.

    Forgot to add another thing to that list… Pup is snoozing beside me right now and I don’t know if I could have stayed so positive without him…we’re totally inseparable.

    The last 7 days in list form

    • Received an acceptance letter into my super competitive program, one of ten accepted out of over 50 applicants whee self esteem boost!
    • Acquired a coaching job with awesome Russian coach dude and while I’m getting paid less (new business and all) I’ve never had this much fun coaching before.
    • Arrived to my micro biology lab only to find that my senior grad student TA has given up on everything and the only thing I have to do for the class is write a paper on an unknown organism I have already identified which means one less thing to stress out over
    • Went skiing in Wyoming and had one of the best ski days I’ve had in ages and literally skied until my legs just couldn’t facilitate a turn any longer (have photos, will post)
    • It was almost 70 degrees today and I felt ridiculously happy driving with my windows down with good music playing.

    After a few months of having my sanity tested I’m finally reaping the rewards of keeping my head down and plowing through all the shit life threw at me. Feels good, man.

    View from tonight’s 7 miles…perfect spring weather for an evening run! By the time I hit 5 miles it was dark so I started pushing the pace. Running in the dark feels like flying…really awesome way to wrap a run up.
