Merry Christmas and Happy Boxing Day!

Visiting family in St. Louis. Wonderful time. Enjoying my fifth Christmas since dx and craniotomy. Enjoyed a good run tonight to work off some of the holiday goodies.

One of the favorite gifts I received is a 6-pack of Black Butte Porter from Deschutes, Oregon. Oh, how I miss Oregon brews.  Cheers to all!

Hope all the brain cancer fighters and their families and supporters have a great 2014!

Happy December!

Hey all,
I am doing just dandy. A snow day tomorrow will be even better. It has been a ridiculously long time since my last post. Basically, no news is good news from my last MRI in October.

They pushed my next MRI back by a month, every four months instead of three months. I have to check my calendar. I think next one is in January.

I have a beard now. It's very hipster.

If you are doing the Spartan 30 burpees a day for 30 days, don't miss days. Doing 150 burpees in one session is not fun. I add penalties for missed days. I needed to do 150 so I did 190 instead. Aroo!

Speaking of Spartan Races, I watched the Spartan championships on NBC Sports yesterday.
There was an athlete, Ivar Leon, who raced. He is also fighting brain cancer and is a top athlete, winning marathons. Awesome story, awesome guy.

Merry Christmas everyone!
