move it move it!


Up here, you just never really know when cycling season ends. Your last ride might be as late as November or as early as October. For that reason, instead of feeling sorry for myself and complain about the cold, the rain, the darkness of such depressing fall weather, I put on my running shoes, and head for the trails with my beloved Quick!

In my mind, they are my trails. Apart from a few deer, lots of squirrels, a very busy fox, I just never encounter any human being. Oh, just for the record, I know there are bears but luckily, I just never saw any… Touching wood as I’m typing!

Up and down, right and left
Everything but boring.
Jumping a creek, avoiding a rock, trying not to slip.
It’s all about making instant decisions. No time for indecision.
Always thinking about your next step.

Rocks, branches, mud, leaves.
Living in the moment.
Clearing your mind.
Feeling the oxygen steaming down your legs and feeding your brain
Looking up a sec to enjoy the view
Surrounded by trees, waterfalls and mountains
How can you feel anything but fresh and alive?

So, whatever the season, it’s all about being in motion.
Pedal, walk, run, swim, hike, jump, slide…just move!!

    I haven’t seen you much on twitter and then I tried to send you a direct message which wouldn’t go through. I hope you and Pat are doing well. Love your blog posts and pics as always!

    Mari jo, so sad to hear about your friend. I thought of you while going over recent photos and saw a photo of Quick. Hope you are well. Today is March 2nd and spring is in the air as we didn’t have winter this winter. Love you, and take care.
