I talked with my brother, and he seems to want to try blimbing Mt Rainier. But he said he thought August might be better than June. It will probably be warmer anyway. So I left him to think about. I am planning on being back in Seattle in June, but I can always fly out for another week to climb Mt Rainier and hang out.
Meanwhile, I keep training. I have been doing miles on my treadmill everyday. I decided that I would also train for a marathon while I was at it. I have probably been doing around 40 miles a week, not sure. I need to keep better records. Last night, I did a 6 mile walk/jog on the treadmill, plus another 2 mile walk out on the road with my wife and dog. I am supposed to do 8 miles on the treadmill tonight. The treadmill work is all done with a heart monitor to make sure I stay in the proper zones. Lots of fun. Instead of posting all about my training on my travel blog, I put up another blog dedicated to fitness and sports at fitness4sports.com.
