The new header picture is one of my favorites. It's so completely basic in nature. It's why we exist... the survival of the fittest.
I love being a stay at home dad. I am a work in progress in regards to being the father I want to be. Just as soon as I figure something out these little wonderful people up and change on me. Seeing Ben trying to teach Liv and then seeing Liv look up to Ben and try to emulate him is priceless. Today we went to the lake behind our house.
The picture doesn't show it well but the water was swirling with gold dust. I think it is pyrite or fools gold? But the water was glittery.
My sweet boy Liv (short for Oliver)
And I got a few pieces of wood while I was there.
Tim Long, my pacer for Leadville, was off work today and came up to the homestead and we tried to discuss tactics and logistics. Between 2 kids and a guy giving me a new furnace estimate we got little accomplished. We ended up having a beer and laughing a lot which in the end may just be how I race Leadville. This could very well be the most relaxed and unstressed I've ever been for any race. That is odd to me and at the same time extremely comforting. I'm far from nervous and have no feelings of anxiety or doubt and when I look inside and picture the run... it's all smooth and happy and good.
