Happy 2014

It's 2014 ... Do you know where your talents and passions lie?

Funny enough, many of my passions are concepts with which I have very little talent or experience. Even more ironic ... my talents are not always things for which I have passion.

So this is the year where I weave the passions and talents into a bridge or basket or whatever I want. I will continue to teach, design, develop, train and learn. I will partner with those that want to get healthy ... and surround myself with those that are happy and healthier than I.

The things I have learned on the endurance journey are still revealing themselves. Most recently I have learned that growing older is inevitable, but aging with power and zeal is very possible.

So what's on tap? Right now, I have no racing scheduled. I may sneak in a few 5Ks as I am forever chasing my perfect race at that distance. Rest assured I will be training. I enjoy the training so much that it's difficult to take time away. Carrie and I are headed to the bottom of the Grand Canyon again in February - so we need to be ready for that.

In a new opportunity - I will occasionally be cycling to work. My new - old job is about 10 miles from the house.

We have signed up to take a 4 month course in welding. We are excited to learn a new skill. I was a decent welder in high school - but I have not welded anything since 1996 or so ... stay tuned.

Happy New Year!
