General running information and thoughts from a guy who has gone around the track too many times.

OMG, what has happened to January?

I mean we are a few days away from the beginning of February. Where has all the days gone?

This means I best get busy.

Besides going to work and family life, which is all great, here is a quick review of January’s highlights.

* Finish the First Call Marathon with son Ammon on January 1. Finish time: 3:54. Not to shabby and a great way to start the new year. Downside to this event was running by the Red Hook Brewery four times – without stopping.

* Started a three month commitment as Lego Coach to a group of 6 year-olds, including grandson Finn. Being a Lego Coach is very similar to herding cats who are playing with Legos. First order of Coach duties is to separate the difficult Lego pieces. Trust me, 6 year-olds are not very patience. Good thing is most know how to tie their shoes.

* Granddaughter Harper turned 4! As a gift Shelly and I took her to the American Girl Doll Store in Lynnwood. It was a horrific interesting experience. I have never seen so much pink and so many freaky looking dolls in one place in all of my life. Did I say it was horrific interesting?

* Seattle Seahawks are going to the Super Bowl. Just want to point out that Shelly and I move to Seattle and the Hawks go to the Super Bowl. Coincidence? I think not. The whole Seattle Gilbert Clan have been enjoying all the games leading up to Super Bowl Sunday. Go Hawks!

For Super Bowl Sunday we will be enjoying my home made chili, which is becoming a football tradition. Well, we have had it once, with enjoyment.

 

Running is going pretty good. Wish I running more miles than I am, but . . . there is February.

See you on the roads.
