I had a big running goal for November but between tweaking my knee and some of the weather we have had the numbers just are not there. Throw in the usual fall/winter lack of goals or sense of urgency in training and it comes up to be another light month. On a good note, I feel great! No lingering aches or pains or anything, so if/when I have to start training in earnest next month I will be set.
This is going to be a big week for me. I discovered that Aspen does not have a divorce recovery support group of any kind. As many of my clients are going through that and rebuilding their lives I have stepped up and have created a local divorce support group here. The first meeting of the Aspen Divorce Support Group will be this coming Wednesday the 3rd in the Pitkin Country Library Meeting Room at 6:15. I am excited and a bit nervous. I have run groups before it has just been a long time.
Still doing the Summit For Life race on the 6th. I have made two trips up the mountain on the course this week. My plan is to do a trip up each day for the next four days. Thursday I will cut the vertical down, Friday I will rest, and Saturday I will race. There is still time to make a donation and any amount is appreciated.
Mixed feelings about getting into Hardrock or not. I know I will be disappointed if I don't get in, but at the same time I have a lot of other goals that I want/must reach this year and I am not sure if I can do both. If I get in I will make it work and it might be good for me to have that out there to balance the constant sensation of being consumed by "self-employment" that is ever present these days. I am not where I want to be yet but each day I know I am getting closer.
On a fun note, the Roaring Fork Vally CRUD group is growing, sorta. The mail list is growing and the Thursday morning thing is picking up. There was a crew of us who went up Aspen Mountain Thanksgiving morning. I think it will be a strong group in numbers come springtime.
