Balance. It's all about balance.

So this year I am striving for balance in my life.

I just completed the Mt. Taylor Quad. That gave me a chance to compliment my running with some skiing and some biking. I was starting to really enjoy both of these activities. I think I will add biking to my regular training schedule.

Looking for balance in other aspects of my life, too. I "should" be doing some intellectual work. You know, reading the great books, writing research articles, writing a novel. But I have been extremely lax in this area. I have started three different on-line courses. My best effort was getting almost half way through one of them. The other two? I didn't even make it through the first three weeks. I keep telling myself I am just not ready yet to engage my brain. Yikes, I hope I don't lose it.

But I have completed a Wilderness First Aid course. Yeah!! I think that is pretty cool. I keep quizzing myself. What does "SAMPLE" stand for? When do I check the person's Level of Responsiveness? Now I need to take a CPR course.

I am also doing the training to become qualified to do Search and Rescue. That sounds like a great volunteer activity for me. Except I have been told that the calls usually come at 10:30 PM....I am dead asleep by then.

I have been tiling the floor. I have been learning how to weave. Balance. It's all about balance.

But mainly I am obsessing about the Bighorn 100 race. Yep, signed up again. No balance there. Just sheer pigheadedness.
