Recommended Posts

Just curious what event fellow WLS patients may be planning on doing.

It could be a way to meet others at one of them. So what's on your upcoming "to do" list?

Event name?

Date?

Location?

I, too, and just focusing on getting healthier right now and making it to boot camp 3x/week. But I'd really like to do our towns annual "Turkey Trot 5k" on Thanksgiving morning this year.

Be well…

Oh, and I do have two off-shore tuna fishing trips scheduled this year. One the first week in September, and the other the first week in October. I'm really looking forward to these, and I need to be good and strong to bring in those big fish!

Be well…

Climbing our local mountain on my favorite trail -- 4.5 miles to the top. Have not done this in many years! And I am starting to muse over the thought of the Camino trail, a pilgrimage across Spain. Wouldn't that be something?!! Also I would really like to do the bike trail from Munich to Vienna. Years ago I ordered the map through the Austrian tourist bureau -- we were pre-Google. Maybe it's not too late! Please note I have not biked in forever. But I want to. And I have Want Power (otherwise known as my band).

Ahh good topic!!

Did my first duathlon in April and below is what I am signed up for so far for the remainder of the year.

May 24th Running in Rock The Block 5k in Plano Tx. It is about 7 miles from the house so I am riding my bike to the event, running, then riding the bike back to the house.

June 21st Tour d Italia in Italy Texas. This is a 63 mile ride. I will likely do the 40 mile ride and not the full 63 this year.

August 10 running the Chris Brown Duathlon in Tulsa OK. This is 5k run 30K bike ride and another 5K run.

September 6th Foam Glow 5K Gran Prairie Tx

November 9th Bronda's Du Texas Motor Speedway 2 mile run 16 mile bike ride then 2 mile run.

Still trying to decide if I squeeze any others in between these. I think I need something in July like another long distance bike ride.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
