-So you think you are tough-

I had to post this, I read an article in the paper on the weekend about this marathon called the Jungfrau Marathon. It is not enough that your are running a marathon but to add a little extra something the Jungfrau Marathon goes up a Mountain in the Swiss Alps. Total climbing from start to finish... 1829 METRES!

Last years winner did it in just under 3hrs!
This marathon is amazing, the only way I think that I could finsh it would be if my lungs and body was surgically replaced with those from 3 time Ironman Hawaii (and Canadian) winner Peter Reid
Check out the site and just wonder how anybody that wasn't part Mountain Goat could get up a mountain so fast! Visit the Site
That is all for now

-Tuesday is Boy's Day-

Jen works late on tuesday night, so it is just the boys. I managed to feed Keir but I did get him a little dirty.

We tried to stay up until Jen got home but Keir fell asleep on my lap.

I always enjoy tuesday night, when it is just the boys. I know Jen misses him a lot but it is nice that we get to spend some time just the two of us.
I had a nice weekend, it was actually my birthday on Sunday. I turned 30, I am not sure what 30 is supposed to feel like but I don't feel 30. I will write more about turning 30 when I have had a little more time to think about it.
That is all for now.

So I haven't written in a couple of days, I have been real busy. Thanks To the people who have commented and even suggested books (Pascale). I also have some books in mind. After watching Oprah last week (yes I watched Oprah) with Lance Armstrong I really would like to read his books: "Every Second Counts" and "It is not about the Bike". I have always found him very interesting. Athletically I know enough about him already, but I think I would find his books extremely interesting. There is also another book by someone affiliated with Lance that would like to read. It is called "Chris Carmichael's Food for Fitness". Yes that might not be as exciting as a nice mystery novel, but I am very interested in the two main things in that book covers: Food and Fitness. Chris Carmichael is Lance's coach and has been with him throughout the past I would be very interested in hearing his thoughts on Nutrition. Betcha he isn't an Atkins advocate. I think I heard heard somewhere that Tour de France riders eat somethign like 6~7,000 calories a day during the Tour and there are a LOT of CARBS involved!.
Keir is great, he was giving me kisses the other night. It was too cute unfortunatly Jen was at work so no one could get any photos.
That is all for now
Have a great weekend

-A little explination-

Today I thought that expand on yesterday's post. I probably didn't explain (very well) my idea to read more an write more often. The whole idea is an exercise for me. I know I am not dumb but just as in almost anything; if you don't practice and constantly use the particular skill it will deteriorate.
It was pointed out to me that there is a couple of spelling errors in yesterdays post. I knew there would be, but I didn't use any spell check for a reason. Yesterday's post is meant as a bench mark. I want to be able to look back at yesterday's post to see if my writing skills have improved. So I can promise you that you will see more spelling mistakes, hopefully there will be less and less as this exercise continues. However I am hoping that you will also see an improvement in the content of the posts.
Anyways just trying to clear things up for everybody (including me).

That is all for now

-It has been a while-

Well so much for my promise to keep this thing up to date more often! It has been a couple of days since I last posted.
Keir is saying more and more words, he imitates words that you say to him. The other day he said "Hi". Also his back teeth appear to be coming in and with that we have had a couple of interupted sleep nights.
I am going to go of on a different direction with a bit of an announcement.
I have come to the conclusion that I need to read more. Those of you that know me probably know that I don't read. In the last ten years I can count on 1 hand the number of books I have read. It is weird because both my mom and dad both read a lot and Jen reads a whole lot also. I have have also come to the conclusion that I am not a good writer. My spelling is horible, my grammar is just as bad, and I have a hard time articulating my thoughts both oral and written (more so written). My lack of reading and horrible writing skils are obviously linked. In an effort to improve this I have started to try and read 0.5hrs a night and I am going to be writting a whole lot more in this web site.
So there will still be the Keir updates but you also might see a little more ramblings about thoughts I have (or don't have). So bare with me, feel free to comment on what I am saying in my writings or just point at your screen an laugh. I may run out of things to write about or you may see more "..the weather today" posts, but I think the process will be an important one for me in learning a little more about myself.
That is all for now

-Keir and Friends-
Jen went out to visit her friend Michelle on Monday. Michelle and Andy just welcomed a beautiful baby girl named Brooke into the world. Here is a picture of Keir, Brokke, and Kaylee. All three mothers work at Jen's dental office. It has been a baby boom at the office recently.
<- Right to Left Keir, Brooke, Kaylee
Jen is working on Saturday so it is just me and Keir all day long we should have lots of fun.
