Before leaving Northern California, I wanted to get to the Pacific Coast Air Museum (PCAM). Just like running, I enjoy airplanes and their history. The pandemic and moving have taken a toll on our general aviation flights, but it’s always fun to visit museums. Hopefully, we will be able to get back into general aviation again.
It feels like I’ve had the Brooks Glycerin in my rotation forever. The Brooks Glycerin 19 is a high cushioned neutral shoe. Even with the updates, it rarely changes much. You know, from year to year, it’s going to be about the same.
This year, the Brooks Glycerin 19 is updated with a softer ride and a new outsole configuration. It feels “less clunky” but still high cushioned. Note: Clunky does not mean cushioned, and cushioned does not clunky.
When I discovered the Truckee Running Festival Waddle Ranch Trail Half Marathon, I decided it would be a fun adventure. The thing about trails is no one cares about your time. I could run a 1:40 or a 2:40, and no one would know the terrain and course. My only goal for the Truckee Running Festival Waddle Ranch Trail Half Marathon was to finish and not hurt myself. I didn’t taper or really put a lot of stock in the race. That’s been my mindset for any trail race. Do it. Don’t hurt myself. Have fun.
In 2013, I wrote a blog titled Chapter 23.5: Texas. It involved my short time living in Del Rio, TX. It was the first time I ever lived with Tim, and shortly after I officially moved down there, he found out he was going to fly the KC-10 in New Jersey. So we moved, and I wrote a short blog post about my time in Del Rio.
While living in Napa, I drew parallels to that post. I was just 23 at the time, (23.5 I guess). Now I am 30, and we spent less than a year in Napa. My time in Napa was great. Excellent. I enjoyed most of it.
September was hard with wildfires, but for the most part, I really enjoyed the 9 months I got in Napa. I wish I had more time.
