The world lost an incredible mother, wife, daughter, friend, attorney, underprivileged advocate, and community member suddenly and unexpectedly on October 16, 2013. In honor of my late wife, Holli Wallace, I am training for the Hallucination 100 mile trail run and raising money for the Children's Grief Center of the Great Lakes Bay Region.

Taking a break

Well, here we are amidst another snowstorm. Not much news to share since the snow and low temperatures (can you say -25 degree windchill?) have kept me on my little stepper machine more than outside. I did devise a way to watch TV, instant message, surf, and use the stepper at the same time today. That really seems like an unhealthy amount of multitasking. Hey, Elliott was taking a nap so you do what you can with those moments.

I've decided to take the month of February off from blogging. There is some interesting stuff going on at work that is keeping me busy and I'm starting to get burned out on winter so I haven't been all that motivated. So why push it? Here's my plan. First, any running I do during February will be fun and not associated with any training plan. Second, I won't keep close track of any of it. Third, by the end of the month I will have picked a 100 mile race for this year. See ya'll in March.

Oh, one more thing. There was an update to the Paint Creek 50k results. I got bumped to 4th, but that's cool. Congrats to everyone who ran!

              1. Tim Collins = 5h 11m
2. Mike Dobies = 5h 21m
3. Craig Mulhinch = 5h 28m
4. Brian Thomas = 6h 01m
