SPRING ON MY MIND Getting Outside to Bike, Run, and Swim

Are you as eager for spring as I am? I’m looking forward to warmer weather and getting outside. For me, spring means bike rides, runs, and enjoying our yard (both working and relaxing in it). I sometimes take longer road bike rides up to Emmett and into Horseshoe Bend, and I also enjoy mountain bike rides when I can. It’s a joy living in a city with so many fun outdoor activities so close by. Once in a while, it’s fun to get out of the city and visit another part of this beautiful state. Every summer since 2007, I’ve participated in the Spudman Triathlon in Burley, Idaho. With a 1.5k swim, a 40k bike ride, and a 10k run, I do a lot of training every spring. It definitely takes time to get comfortable in the water. I train at a local pool leading up to the race, but the triathlon is in the open water of the Snake River. It’s usually not too cold, and there are people who swim it without wetsuits, though you probably won’t catch me without one. Most people opt for that extra warmth. This will be my 13th year of competing in the Spudman, and I plan to keep going strong. I have all my race bibs stored at home; maybe one day I’ll do something with them to honor the role the triathlon has played in my life. Speaking of home, my family is doing great. My two daughters are both married now and are enjoying life and staying busy. My eldest has a new baby who’s nearing her first birthday. It’s hard to believe time has moved that quickly! We are all smitten with this little one. We enjoy her so much — she’s just so fun to be around. Since she lives in Utah with my daughter and son-in-law, we take every chance we can to visit them. In addition to visiting Utah, I’m also heading to Guatemala this spring for our second service trip. Our marketing coordinator, Jessica, and I went for the first time last year and had a rewarding, humbling trip. This year, I’m bringing my family along — my wife, Jen, and my two youngest, my boys. They’re very excited to experience this place I’ve talked so much about. I’m looking

forward to returning to Guatemala to share my skills and learn from the wonderful people there.

At the office, we have you in mind. We’re adding a few upgrades to bring our services up-to-date in 2019. Every year, technology offers new and exciting innovations. We can’t wait to incorporate them into our practice and improve the quality of care we deliver you.

I look forward to seeing you soon, and until then, have a wonderful start to your spring.

P.S. Our Patient Appreciation Party is coming up on Aug. 2! We’re going big this year with a night at the Boise Zoo, reserved exclusively for our Ustick patients and their families! Space is limited, so let us know you’re coming. I’m excited to see you there.
