How to Bounce Back from a "Vortex"

"In life, you always have a choice
1. Be weak
2. Be strong” - Karen Salmansohn

I love this article. The “vortex” can be felt in different ways - not just during a tough time in life but during a tough time in a marathon, etc. We cannot control what happens to us but we can control our reaction. I chose to be strong!

Especially relevant today since I am still sick on the couch. 35 days to Vineman 70.3!!!!!!

A taste of Big Sur

I just uploaded my pictures from the Big Sur Marathon (91 in all, 78 during the race).  A full recap will likely come tomorrow but in the meantime, here is a pic from the journey up Hurricane Point.  

Me with part of the assent of Hurricane Point in the background.  The wind practically blew my number off.
