I thank god for my running friends;
- they push me farther, push me harder, they keep me going,, and get me out of bed in the morning.
- they wait for me when I'm weak, and encourage me when I'm strong.
-they listen to me when I have issues, and talk to me when they have theirs.
We all accept each other for who we are. There is no make-up nor 'masks' - we are who we are... people running through the trails, running through the paths of our lives .
We just keep moving forward, leaving the past behind us, and looking forward to the future.

IRON KNEE 2011Last minute decision to do this 'just for fun' with friends- and boy am I glad I did !
That is how my right calf felt running up the first long, slow incline. It cramped up big time and slowed me to a walk to try and get feeling back in my foot. Seriously thought of DNFing... but it was only a mile in !
I have renamed this hill F-U Peter hill !
Don't know if it was his idea, but he announced the new changes in course, so the messenger always gets the blame. Apparently he has big shoulders and can take it.
I've run most of this during Knee knacker, but the 25 km prior made me a bit delerious, and it wasn't nearly as fun flying down the hills with the fresh legsI had on this race.
