It's been a while....

Ok, ok... so I haven't posted in a while. I just figured no one was gonna ever read this thing and it didn't matter.

Anyway... I did run in and finish the Bolder Boulder 10k race back in May. Boy, that was a long time ago now! It was a lot of fun actually and I didn't have any problems running the whole race without stopping.

Otherwise, I found out (kind of) about my first round of Navy applications, and I heard a "no" for my first time around. I am in the process now of trying to get things figured out to reapply, hopefully sooner than later. It has been a fiasco, but hopefully will smooth out soon.

My business is actually getting some more work now, so that is nice. I am offering some new services now too, like 8mm reel to reel transfers, videography services (for events, weddings, corporate stuff, etc.) and will soon be offering the website solutions, just need to get paid a little more first so I can afford to upgrade the software I use for that. Anyone wanna donate? Feel free, I could definitely use the money!

I also was very involved with a new Relay For Life event through the American Cancer Society in East Boulder County. The event went fantastically, I was a Team Captain as well as co-chair of the Logistics Committee. My team had an initial fundraising goal of $1000 and we ended up raising over $2500 (with myself raising over $1000 alone!)! The overall Relay goal was $30,000 and we ended up having over $45,000 raised! The event itself went very smooth, and we had a great turnout. It was fun, even though kinda busy and crazy running around making sure all the logisitcs were ok, but fun.

Other than that, we (my wife and I) went to Carlsbad, CA this summer for my family's annual trip there. We will be heading to Hawaii next, in a week and a half (crazy that came quick!) compliments of my step-mom who just retired and wants to take the family to Hawaii to celebrate.

A scary thing that did happen just recently though, we just found out that my Dad has a heart issue and will need open heart surgery to replace is aortic valve. So everyone, please pray for him! It is very scary and I just hope everything goes ok. It sounds like he will be having the surgery sometime in October maybe. We'll see.

First 5k ever!

Well, I've done it, I finished my first official race. I ran in the Flat-Out 5k in Broomfield, CO on Saturday, it was a qualifying race for the Bolder Boulder 10k which I will partake in at the end of this month (memorial day). The track was a bit more difficult then I expected it to be, lots of up hill running. I finished though, and received a qualifying time for the Bolder Boulder. I did not do as well as I wanted to, but oh well, what can I do for my first race. Now I just need to keep training for the Bolder Boulder, and then after that for Navy OCS! For the results from the 5k go to: The results aren't quite up as of this posting, but should be soon. I was in the May 7th race at 9:15 A.M. if you are curious.

My first blog!

Well, I've seen a lot of people do one of these, and here is my attempt at it! We'll see how often I actually write on here, maybe I'll try to use it as a journal, we'll see how that goes!
