Worked on the Leo today for a bit. It's going slow, but it's still progressing.

Looked at my mug in the mirror today. Going to have to break out the chain saw to hack through my beard before I go back to work on Monday.

It's gonna hurt.

Regards

Planning on dropping 10-15lbs by spring. And Scott I just completed that X-Wing fighter build from the SSM group build we were in. You remember, the Pro Shop version. I'm waiting on a mini tri-pod to come in to use as a stand and when it does I'll post pics. Glory days!

About to go on a 5 mile bike ride, followed by a one mile run......

Thats about four and three quarters more then I could make it and about three quarters of a mile farther then I could run before I needed to stop and get some oxygen ha ha ha :D. Im so out of shape these days and about fourty lbs over weight then I should be. Always wish I could do all that stuff but I have a current heart problem. I have the will to do it but the ole heart says NO lol. Wish I could get over that and get the ambition to shed the pounds and have the ability to be able to ride and run like that. Any suggestions on beating this heart condition ha ha ha. I thought about attempting P90X but dont know if the budget will allow me to do so with all the special foods you have to purchase to successfully complete a program of such nature.

At a wedding I have no interest in being at.... I would rather be tortured by the Gestapo. :(

I started off slow. First the bike ride. It was not too taxing on the old heart, and I slowly built up the distance and the speed. When I started off 5 years ago, I could barely finish the five miles and it took a half hour to do. Now it takes about 12 minutes.

I started the run about two years ago. It was at first a fast walk, and now it is close to a fun run. It just takes time and patience at our age to do these things.

One other thing, if you skip a day, it is much harder to get back to where you were the week before than it was at 20. Back then I could skip a month of running and just pick it right up again.

John you ain't kidding brother. I reveled in the fact that I was in great shape all during my 30's and the early part of my 40's. The last two years are slamming me.

Where in El Paso?
I used to live there before I moved to NY for my job with Homeland Security.

I lived by the Airport, close to the Nasa Flight Training Center.

Our hotel was about a half mile from the airport. I don't know the exact address of where we stayed. But it was on Gateway. There was a mall across the street that had a Target in it. The wife would know better since she grew up there.
