Congratulations to Dennis upon completion of the recent Missoula Marathon, an amazing feat (pun intended) and one done on his birthday! Happy Birthday, Dennis!

********

Well, I completed the Missoula Marathon. It was a bit of a grind, as my left knee decided to bother me about 8 miles in to the race, the classic runner's iliotibial band pain.

But with my training from my running class, I stayed focused on the pace that I wanted to run which is 8:30 per mile, my running form, and staying as relaxed as I could despite the fact my knee reminded me that it was not happy with what I was doing.

I was inspired by my wife, Jodie, who with her disability, works so hard to be able to just walk again for exercise. So there was no way I was going let the knee pain stop me and was thankful that it did not get any worse. And with that I finished in 3 hrs 46 min. So I was happy with my time.

Here are some of my thoughts about the marathon: the race is very well organized; the volunteers are to be commended for their work and moral support; the people who came out to cheer and again offer moral support were great, especially some much needed pleasant distractions such as the man playing his baby grand piano, the two young ladies playing their violins, numerous sound systems playing music; the scenery of the Missoula valley that can't be beat especially in the wee hours of the morning; all the sprinklers out cooling me off; the cheers as you make the turn onto the Higgins Bridge and the finish line . . . a welcome sight; my wife and family coming out to wish me a Happy Birthday and cheer me on at the end was great; and soaking my legs in the Clark Fork River was such relief, as was my afternoon nap afterwards.

One of the more interesting and odd things of the marathon as I found out, are the number of marathon junkies that run marathons all over the US and the world for the fun of it. I found running the marathon a challenge but not something I would do as a lifestyle. Kinda funny! Will I run another one? I don't know. I will let the memory of this one fade and then see if I am up to the challenge again.

It's a party! Alpine has a knack for having the best and most fun parties in town. I haven't heard yet whether we'll have a mechanical bull. That remains to be seen.

In lieu of a river float, we're converging at the Dodges this Thursday for our summer get-together. Barbeques are always a blast at the Dodges. And we've got the pool for the kids to swim and play in. 

Chalk it up to another fantastic summer party. See you there!
