The Last Week

On Wednesday I went backpacking with an ex-girlfriend above her hometown of Ouray, Colorado. It was a magnificent three days. I felt like God gave me a glimpse of the life that was possible if I tried a little harder.

On Sunday I ran a half-marathon on trails above Steamboat Springs, Colorado. The course began with a quad-busting 1600-foot climb. Finishing was as miserably difficult and gloriously rewarding as I had feared and envisioned.

Today I got a job as an after-school teacher at the elementary school I attended in Boulder, Colorado. I am starting to feel like a functional member of society.
