ng in my own head too much. Anyway I base this purpose from the book of Ecclesiastes (3.12) in the bible and my own experiences. On the enjoying as much as possible, one my big goals for 2015 is to cut activities from my life. I want to enjoy the activities that I do more fully and do less things better.
How did we get here? I don't know! How much does it matter? I swing back and forth on that one, though I'm sure I'll keep asking it from time to time. Is there a God? I am 51% sure there is a God. I hope folks can understand that. I'm sure my parents would not. For me, 51% means that I've chose a path, I believe. Of course this is all about faith right? I have a lot of faith, 49% to be exact. So back to this past weekend and how
all my thinking impacted it.
On Friday I did a 8-10 mile out and back with 4000'+ of elevation gain up to Twin Peaks. Not what I would have done in years past on the day before an important race or any race. I have been and still am a very competitive person. That has driven much of my running in the past. But maybe the competitiveness is fading a little. But I also enjoy being in and traversing mountainsides and mountain tops. So I wanted to enjoy Friday and Saturday, and Sunday. Sunday I went up on top of Box Elder peak. That was ~14 miles with 5500' of elevation difference from trailhead to peak. I was hoping to see some mountain goats on those runs, but I'll have to keep seeking.
Thanks for those of you that have encouraged me to post some new blogs. We'll see how long until my next post, no promises. Maybe I'll get around to some of my adventures from the last year, no promises.

Ready for quote out of context?
I turned to Alison and said, "Suck more, squeeze less."
Come on, I guess I'll have to explain that one a little. I was telling Alison how to drink out of the Ultimate Direction bottle with out it dribbling on her. Anyway, thanks to UD for taking me on as a UD Ambassador.
