Back home

May 3, 2012

I am back home, very tired, and very sad.

Cancer sucks…

We did have a nice time being together as a family.  We are spread over the country so we don’t get to see much of each other very often.   I loved being in Colorado, where my brother lives.  The views are amazing and the trails are awesome.  The Ralston Creek trail runs through their neighborhood, I could have run from their house to Denver, no streets!

Living near the seacoast of New Hampshire, I think we are all of 50 – 75 feet, sure felt that mile high altitude!!  I walked more that I usually do, but the weather and the trails were worth it.

The training for the last part of the week…

Friday – rest

Saturday – Run 4.5 miles, altitude, hills, wind.  1 hour

Sunday – Walk 3.5 miles. 51 min

Monday – Run 3.5 miles, 43 min, ran up the big hill, really sucking air at the end…

We took the  red eye back on Monday night, so Tuesday was a rest day…

Wednesday – 250 yard swim…not very far but husband not feeling well.

Here is a few pictures of our drive to the mountains.

Driving west on I 70

12,000 feet, walking up a set of steps, out of breath!!

Looking toward Arapahoe Basin, still open

Have a good day,

    We just flew over the Rockies on our way to New Mexico and I was surprised how much snow they still had!! I’m sorry that you are sad–cancer does suck. Live each day loving, truly living, and ever regretting. :-). Hang in there. Be strong, but give yourself time to sad, too. You are in my heart.

    I’m so glad you had the time you did with your brother. And you are right… cancer sucks… big time 😦
    The views of the mountains are beautiful! How wonderful that he lives in such an amazing place!

    So sorry for your family having to journey with cancer. Not fun. My heart goes out to you. I love that you still got in your workouts and am really impressed since you were at such a higher elevation! Lovely shots of the mountains. Rest and feel the full range of feelings…

    Cancer is a miserable journey that no one deserves. Great that you could still get your training in during these difficult times. Beautiful photos of the mountains.

    Glad to have you back in the East. My wife and I will be in Hanover this weekend for a 5k trail race. Never been to New Hampshire so we are excited. Continue to be well.
    All the best,
