Living Deliberately Project – Week 50

by nomeatbarefeet

This week in the LDP…

well, this happened:


It is hard to recognize him with a shirt on. Usually he looks like this:

For those who don’t recognize the handsome man beside me, that is Anton (Tony) Kurpicka, ultrarunner extrodenaire and one of the stars in of the film In the High CountryKatie and I attended a showing in Burlington, which was followed by a Q&A with Tony and Joel Wolpert (the cinematographer/crew/climber/runner). It was truly incredible to be able to meet someone who has been so monumentally inspiring to both of us—to ask questions, hear about his life and what it’s like to run 100 miles in the mountains, and then to snap a picture or two.

(Plus we took the elevator up with him—Katie’s response: “Hey it’s you!” Tony: “Well, I don’t really know where I’m going.” Us: “Well, we’re coming to see you.”) As far as once in a life time opportunities this was a great one (and cheap: tickets were $10 a pop).

Expenditures amounted to $28 this week, leaving us with $34 for the last two weeks of the LDP.

Yeah, so other than meeting a world famous ultra runner this week was pretty laid back…colder and colder and colder, plus snow (I am writing this just prior to a massive storm coming through). Katie has one more week of school and this its Christmas Vacation. Not sure what more to say. As always, trying to survive the holiday season is a tough task. Sharing it with family always helps.
