Follow Your Bliss

My wise uncle Steve once said to me "follow your bliss" and that is what I did to make my decision. I decided not to go to Belgium. I was so honored to have had the opportunity to go and will definitely attempt to get on the team for next year. I couldn't pass up my goal of getting to Western States. Also, I would only have 4 weeks to recover from Miwok 100km and I wouldn't be able to run the kind of race I would have wanted to race in Belgium. Also, Peter and I are co-race directing Summer Solstice trail marathon that day and I have been looking forward to it all year.

My aunt Julie is THE BEST MASSAGE THERAPIST IN THE WORLD. She works wonders and continues to keep this body functioning optimally. We located the spot on my hip that has been causing me pain and she worked it out like crazy. I have had no pain since and I have her to thank for it. Seriously, if anyone is looking for a massage therapist, I HIGHLY recommend her. She injured her hand last year and was off for 6 weeks and I was forced to try out some new therapists but none of them were as good as her. Maybe I am bias but she has her own style which is like no other. Also, she uses her own fleecy sheets with heating pads to keep you warm. I fall asleep sometimes I am so comfortable. She works out of her house in Lynn Valley. That is her in the picture above. We were out a few months ago for an amazing hike up the BCMC in the snow.

I had a great run in the snow this morning with my Wednesday trail clinic. I thought no one would show up but my clinic ladies are very loyal. Can't wait for next week.

See you in the trails!

Congrats on making a good decision and following your bliss! I think you made the right decision. You'll just have to come to Gibraltar in November 2010! Kick butt at Miwok!
