INGLORIOUS ULTRA GUY

Hi again...
I am trying to get in the habit of posting 3 or more times a week...so here goes.
Saturday, I ran 70 minutes with a group getting ready for Punxsytawney 50 K in early Sept. It was great being with a group and getting the running insults and give and take.
Monday, I did upper body. Tuesday, I ran for an hour on the trails. Today (weds) I hit a full body workout in the AM.... and then got in a brisk 35 minutes solo on the trails while The Bride taught a Pilates class.
Saw Inglorious Basterds. Very well done flick..with yes...alot of gore...but it was suspenseful. Great acting..especially the guy playing the German SS officer. Yes, Brad Pitt was good too.
The Bride got lots of new toys and is blasting her clients with some innovative techniques. She had me do a few variations of some lifting sets...using kettlebells. Big time tough!! I vow to do more of these kinds of workouts....

I want to mention a young man who is very inspiring. Cory Skoczen, Ashland U. football player suffered a spinal cord injury 2 weeks ago and was initially feared to be paralyzed. He has shown great determination and has slowly gotten some feeling back..and now has been released from the hospital. He was advised to take a year off...but Cory has already vowed to go classes and to resume a normal life as best he can. He will be on the sidelines this fall, I am sure and will boost the morale of his Eagle teammates. Keep Cory in your thougths.

Life's a Blast

Cory's fight is definitely inspiring. It is great to hear when someone is able to defy the odds and recover from such traumatic injuries
