The shoes I want, but can’t have

A sensible shoe is the direction I seem to be going towards.  I can’t believe I wrote that.  My aching back and knees are now the forces behind which shoes are best suited for me.  My heart is telling me to wear those gorgeous gladiator knee length; multi-buckled flat sexy sandals (see the picture).  My back and knees are telling me that a little heal is needed as well as some arch support.  That sounds so “retirement plan” and I’m nowhere near retiring.  I’m just getting started…aren’t I?

Loving the Fog

Loving the Fog

The “To Do” list is very long and needs my attention. I’ve got a lot of stuff to do… But… I don’t care. I’m pleasantly in a fog. A glorious fog that rolled into my life. The same kind of dense fog you might wake up to along the coast of Maine. The billows of damp mist that rolls onto the coastline. The kind that feels cold, wet and humid.

Un… Measure Measurement

Un… Measure Measurement

The Marathon was the great measurement of the ultimate run. Then the Triathlon was the measurement of the greatest combination athletic event. Now it’s the Ironman Extreme which is the greatest physical measurement and challenge. I wonder what the next great challenge will be or the next great measurement of the human challenge.
