J.T. is still Alive

Greetings gang. Its been quite a while since I last posted. Would you believe just before Christmas!!?? 5 Months is a long time.
I continue to train as an ultra-distance trail runner and still cross train should I jump back into some triathlons this year.
Raced in the Fools 50k ultra in late March. It was the muddiest by far, that I have been involved in. The elite racers finish in around 4 hours...but for the back of the packers like me...you are talking about another 3-4 hours dealing with the rain and the muck.. We got it done and we move on. I hope to run a 100 miler this year but have yet to totally commit to one race. In the meantime, I love my time in the woods...free lancing some trails and clearing my mind.
The job has required a ton of mind-clearing, as our Cleveland Cavaliers were dumped by the Celtics in the playoffs..and now, we face, each day, a new rumor about LeBron James future and that has many Cleveland fans near suicidal!!!
My son, Patrick is now a personal trainer..and a spin instructor. That makes me very proud that he got into triathlons and working on his fitness. Lately, he has ditched his car (in our driveway) and commutes to his apartment in Ohio City on his bike.
The Bride continues to train clients..kick her hubbies butt and conduct boot camps and Pilates workshops.
Hope all of your training and racing is going well
Life's a Blast!!
