Waiting Is The Hardest Part

It's been a long time since I've posted on here. Been in middle of moving back to Colorado for the school year, and in the midst of this I've had some bizarre health issues that have taken up virtually all of my emotional and physical energy at times. I'm feeling settled back into Colorado now, but still waiting on lots of test results to try to figure out what's going on in my body. I most definitely won't be able to race Run Rabbit Run or UROC this year, but that's about the farthest thing from my mind right now. Just want to figure out what I'm dealing with, and what I need to do to move forward in a positive and healing way.

In the meantime, here's a link to an interview I did recently:  http://leftcoastrunning.com/article/geoff-roes-interview-with-champion

Also, I plan to finalize the dates for next summer's sessions of Alaska Mountain Ultrarunning Camp sometime in the next couple weeks, so keep an eye here or on the camp website for info. about that. We had four incredible sessions of camp this summer and plan on at least 3 again next summer.

Your post on IRF today really stuck in my head. Today on my run I did my best to appreciate every single step that I took. I didn't worry about my pace, I didn't worry about my mileage. I just ran. Thanks for that gift. I am sending you positive thoughts and hope you get past this soon.

It was a pleasure and honour to meet you and your girlfriend at the Farmer's Market yesterday, and I am sorry to hear of your health. But I wish you the best in recovery and enjoying both being back in Colorado and the camaraderie and support you undoubtedly have among fellow runners and mountain enthusiasts.

Get well soon. Health issues can certainly bring perspective quickly and in ways never imagined. I hope it passes soon. -a distant admirer

Hope you get some answers, soon, Geoff. I've never commented to you but read your blog. I know once you have a better idea of what is not right, you will be focused on getting well. Hoping it is looking better for you soon!
