    Description

    I am lighthearted, playful- like lots of contact and activity. In addition to sports I enjoy gardening, baking, eating and travelling. My vacations largely consist of eating, hiking, skiing or camping; or big city travel - or both! Favorite travel destinations: Norway, SW Colorado, Montana, New York City, Seattle, New England, Alaska, France(speak/read French, but comprehension of spoken word is difficile), Italy(get by in Italiano), Spain, Austria. Places I want to see: Mexico, Peru, Nova Scotia. I have a variety of interests and passions...and am a lifelong learner.

    I love running..on the track, the road, and trail and am always looking for running partners of any ability to share my passion with. In my mind there is no more pure raw effort of man...and none more beautiful than watching a disciplined athlete run in any sport. I also like to bicycle. In winter I like to alpine and nordic ski, snowshoe, and skate.

    I like the mountain backcountry...and all parts of the rural west as I grew up here. I am a finisher of the leadville trail 100. Currently passionate about racing the 800m on track. anyone going to gay games Cologne 2010? Lets get together and train or form a 4x400 team.

    Race /PR update: ran lifetime PR in 5K on sept 27, 2008: 18:33, 5:58/mile pace
    also ran PR in 800 summer 2008 2:16.9
    this year 800 has been so-so(2:23) but ran 4:57 1500 in wind in Copenhagen
    ran 400 m for first time in competition in 62 seconds in Copenhagen.
    bronze medal in road 5K in Copenhagen 19:00...
    5k Biathlon(nordic/paintgun) at 10000 ft (leadville) in 17:15!

    I am ramping up sprint work right now for summer track season. 1st meet is June 3 and will run 800, 400 and 3000.
    I plan to run the rock and roll Denver marathon in October2010, ramping up miles after summer track culminating with a big meet in Cologne.

    I like city life and rural life but not too much into the suburbs. I love the food, music and culture of big cities but also the silent peace of a mountain trail. At heart I am a quiet colorado kid once you get past my exterior.

    love to work hard, play hard, love hard

    if that isn't enough(wow must really be interested if reading this far)..look here too: http://www.connexion.org/viewprofile.cfm?id=3956

    Still not enough look at my workout calendar: http://www.mapmyrun.com/user/289485524/



    If thou must love me, let it be for nought
    Except for love's sake only. Do not say
    'I love her for her smile - her look - her way
    Of speaking gently, - for a trick of thought
    That falls in well with mine, and certes brought
    A sense of pleasant ease on such a day'-
    For these things in themselves, Beloved, may
    Be changed, or change for thee, - and love, so wrought,
    May be unwrought so. Neither love me for
    Thine own dear pity's wiping my cheeks dry,-
    A creature might forget to weep, who bore
    Thy comfort long, and lose thy love thereby!
    But love me for love's sake, that evermore
    Thou mayst love on, through love's eternity.



    Guys I'm Looking To Meet

    Would love to meet friends who enjoy music, cooking, gardening, fitness, kids, hiking, skiing or something active outdoors. Lighthearted, spontaneous and eager..love old wooden roller-coasters. I am high on life and want to meet folks who are also that way. Like the natural high I get running. As far as fitness I think its something everyone should strive for-you would be amazed what 3 hours cardio and 2 hours lifting a week will do for your body, mind and mood! Put away the mind numbing substances and get out and live and feel!!

    Prefer active, passionate, outdoorsy men for company. Someone who might want to join me in some of the outdoor adventures I like(ski, hike, run, bike, camp). Basically would like a companion with whom I can enjoy an active life, travel, nordic ski, run. Have a boyfriend so not seeking romance.



    This is an intriguing philosophy:

    A Stotan is one who hardens, strengthens, toughens and beautifies the body by consistent habits and regular exercises, which are consciously and irrevocably made part of the life plan of the individual, as well as consciously determining that the mind will be cultivated upon such abstractions as purity, beauty and logic. Erudition, in as complete a degree as possible shall be the lifelong aim: Truth, in relation to all aspects of life, the unending search.

    Stotans will, by virtue of their philosophy, be nature lovers, with a respect and appreciation of all evolved or created things. They will appreciate the sanctity of creative effort both in themselves and in others. They will strive to understand the significance implied by reality, will be able to discern the real from the spurious, and see no anomaly in nudity, either in body or mind. But neither will they cast pearls before swine.

    Stotans, for all the reasons that their philosophy stands for (viz: hardness, toughness, unswerving devotion to an ideal), would look upon the sea (or mountains) as their pristine element and endeavour to associate themselves with their primeval source by immersing themselves at least once per month in all seasons of the year. No practice is disposed to toughen, both the body and the morale, more than this.

    Stotans believe that neither the body nor the mind can be maintained at a high pitch of efficiency unless sufficient and regular rest is obtained, and aim at a daily average of of 8 hours sleep. Stotans, also, will not be found in social places after midnight. Stotans shall so regulate their lives that at the end of a period, varying with the intensity of effort, each shall realize that they have attained, without conscious striving, to a state of knowledge, and a position of leadership within the community. It is axiomatic that only the pure can understand purity, only the cultivated appreciate beauty, and only the strong truly measure their strength. Therefore, only the self-disciplined can command genuine respect.

    A program shall be aimed at which shall be designed to [train each Stotan]:-

    (a)… to withstand physical hardship, to accomplish feats of strength and endurance, to understand orderliness, and the true meaning of intelligence.

    (b) To know himself as an organism and a personality

    (c) To emerge, eventually emancipated, from all dogmas, creeds, and beliefs, as well as worldly and unworldly hopes and fears.

    (d) To habitually function upon the highest planes of thought and physical effort.

    (e) To place the objective of an alert, informed intelligence, and a perfected body, as primary in Life. And to arrive at the conclusion that all else will follow on.

    (f) To learn that on this basis, the whole world, and all that it has to offer, opens out as a vision, splendid, normal and realizable.

    (g) To understand that Past, Futures, Fates, Fears, Death, Selfishness, Egoism, Pride, Envy, Hate and Prejudice can be replaced by Intelligence that controls emotion, dominates destiny, manifests completeness and exults in Life.

    (h) To understand that, in actuality, evolved man is a King, but without the trappings. That Kingship is his right and his destiny. That we can make ourselves, in time, all that we would. That we honour real men but are subservient to none.

    In addition, Stotans shall train themselves to withstand, stoically, personal criticism, also, scepticism as the necessity or wisdom of such a Way of Life. In this regard, Stotans soon learn that they command knowledge, experience and ability not available to the prejudiced, the ignorant or the slothful.

    Also, having embarked upon the Stotan Way of Life, like the Spartans, one must go through with it to the end. There is no giving up throughout life. The first pre-requisite for a Stotan is tenacity. The next is to understand that his loyalties are towards making the most of the material that is his, to the expansion, or at least the manifestation of the Life Force, and a constant identification of himself with his Life Force through his Way of Life.

    To live this Way of Life is hard. It is not for weaklings. It is the Way that is travelled by all the truly great ones. It requires strenuous effort of body and mind.
