    Life is a headlong rush into the unknown. We can hunker down and hope nothing hits us or we can stand tall, lean into the wind and say, "Bring it on, darlin', and don't be stingy with the jalapenos."

                Hit 40 miles this week. Was planning on cut back, but got some new shoes and I wanted to break them in.
