Day off. Traveled through Oregon and Washington all day and so I'm hoping tomorrow I'll get the chance to run to the Columbia River Gorge amphitheater before the concert. Putting in some miles hopefully this week..

AM-8 miles out towards Quincy lakes and back on the road then over to the trail. Windy but cool and spectacular to run somewhere different for a change. I enjoy my running more now especially when I get days like this. I think most of all I'm just not so caught up in the competition of it anymore and am loving being out there and enjoying my time. 

PM-No run.

Kim and I travelled to Othello this evening to collect some memories and to make a collage for a deceased relative. This will all be put together to display and memorialize at the funeral later this week.  Both a sad and happy occasion this evening.  Now as I'm I getting older I am seeing those of my parents generation begin to pass now and it's a rather sobering thought on the short, but precious time we all share here on this earth. All the more reason to extend and reach out to those around us more often and in a meaningful way. I was always told by my elders that it wasn't about the money, the trophies, or even the recognition. Whether it be in the field of work or sport.  And I believe that we all receive that message to one degree or another in different times of our life.  However, today it seems to have taken an especially more profound and spiritual meaning while being accompanied with some sense of urgency that I can't totally put my finger on yet.

Jesus said to love one another including those who don't always love you back..  I think if there were one lesson we were all meant to learn and experience during our short walk on this earth, that one would pretty much sum it all up in a nutshell.  As with running, it's a work in progress for me and probably always will be.  But one which needs to be stepped up.     Starting today.

AM-16 miles at 7-8/min pace for the bulk of the run then 1min on/40sec off repeats at the end of the run. More for strengthening the legs than anything else. Also mentally adjusting to running hard at the end of longer runs or races. Quincy loop.

PM-6 mile easy twilight run. 6:40-7:30/mi. Mainly 6:40ish.  At about mile 2 a four legged guy came trotting along side me without so much as even hearing his approach. Would have sworn it was a coyote, but after closer examination at a safer distance I could tell it was probably a mix of blue eyed Malemute or something. He seemed friendly enough, so I just calmly told him to scoot on home and then slowly walk jogged away.  I count myself lucky that I wasn't eaten..
