There's a lot of shit sours out there. But give me a good Flanders red or Gose and I'll more than happily drink it.

I bring cinnamon whiskey with me in a flask on mountaineering trips :(

This was my first memorable exposure to Aretha Franklin (also - this movie is incredible in every way)

I do resisted ankle inversions/eversions/dorsiflexions, single leg balance exercises, and have found a way of stretching our muscles/tendons down around my ankle/achilles. The last 4 exercises on this link!

If you have a good PT she'll tell you to keep doing them. After a while you likely won't need to do them daily. I still stretch every single day regardless of exercising, and do exercises similar to what you have listed, and ankle ones, a minimum of two times a week. It works!

It sucks for now, but as you continue to rehab you will be stronger and better than ever. The next races and training regiment will be that much better.

I'm tired pretty much everyday. Getting through and complaining about communication. My climbing has gotten better lately, so that's good. Though it's starting to feel like I'm either growing into a stereotype, or growing into myself. Lots of people have been commenting on how I "just look like a climber" by nature of being tall, lanky, and long arms.

I'm feeling good about that, and more confident in my abilities at least indoors. Haven't been outdoors much lately but the last I did go it went well. Scrambling on mountains with exposure to long falls still freaks me out a bit, but that will come with time. I am still, perpetually, forever trying to learn how to balance a relationship with the outdoor and running things I partake in.

    Viaskin failed efficacy, by the way. It doesn't fuckin' work. AR101? It mostly works. But for some people it's still rugged AF. It's like "would you like a minor attack every day or a major attack when you least expect it?" Racing pulses, shortness of breath, aggro shit. But then, it's basically peanut protein powder. It's not a pill. You mix it with food. You'd think you could ask shit like this if you're writing an article about it.

Dude, I would way rather have a minor attack. This article is complete bullshit, agreed. I feel completely powerless against food allergies, and it's bizarr-o since they've developed in the past year plus and are usually severe, exactly what you stated in the quote above. Give me some real news or studies on this and then it will be exciting.

    Fuckin' VOTE. It's the only thing the goddamn boomers have over you. They don't even have the numbers anymore (and us GenXers never did) but they've been running things for so long that if you listen to them they'll grind you into powder.

Voted in the primary this past week. Voter turnout was 23.45%. Yeah, it's a primary, but fuck you if you surrender putting a candidate on a ballot come election season. I can't see an age or demographic breakdown of voting, unfortunately. I'm so aggravated over this considering:

1. Ballots were mailed weeks prior to the voting deadline.

2. Ballots were mailed with paid postage and with a pamphlet describing each candidate in each race and ballot box locations.

3. I can't figure out a way of berating everyone on why this is important. But I want to scream at all of my friends and colleagues who just...decided not to participate...these are educated people. Hopefully they'll vote come November. We'll see.

    For the most part, volunteers are only worth as much as you pay them. It's a sad thing to say, but universally true. While there are bright sparks from time to time, who will uplift your heart and validate all your efforts, they too will fade over time and eventually fail you.

Appreciate the advice, especially this bit. Would you be open to a PM with some more specific details? I'm interested if you already know the event we put on (it's in the South Sound).
