Fun but short weekend








Allison and I headed out to Eden, UT for a wedding reception of some friends of ours. While there, I got to go for a great bike ride and an awesome mountain run in the Wasatch mountains as well as getting to party with our friends. The weather was gorgeous. 70s and low 80s during the day and 40s at night. They still have a LOT of snow on the ground and Brighton (the top of Big Cottonwood Canyon) even got a foot of fresh snow on Memorial Day weekend before climbing back up into the 80s again. Strange weather, but it sure is beautiful!
One of the friends we stayed with is a Doctor and after talking with him about some of my knee troubles, we've pretty much concluded that I have a bruised Meniscus in my right knee. Not too threatening, but it is a bit uncomfortable and if not allowed to heal, it could lead to worse. Somehow, I have to find a way to get in some longer runs this month in preparation for the Leadville Marathon on July 1st while still somehow taking it easy on my right knee. Looks like lots of ice and anti-inflamatory stuff is in order.

Looks like a cool place... and the snow, at this time of year.

I would love some snow about now.

I'm jealous of your trail exploits.

heh heh, whoever took that picture was ahead of you... but they probably don't have an inflamed meniscus. let's use that in a sentence- I don't finish first but the meniscus they're faster

bruised meniscus, ouch. hope it heals quickly, and you can do the marathon without further damage to it.

kids are out of town so I actually had time to read your stuff. Take it easy old man so Allison doesn't have to wait on you hand and foot when you're 40 something. I'm proud of you and jealous of your freedom to travel. Enjoy!
