Twins – Endurance Buzz Adventures and our little Walnut

If you didn’t know, life is awesomely (is that a word?) full right now in the Hanenburg tribe.

Baby EBA – Born

Earlier this week I launched a new project of mine – Endurance Buzz Adventures!

This little dirt lovin’ tribe will deliver trail running experiences on the sweetest trails in the north Texas area and increase the number of great races we have in this part of the state.

The mission:

  • Dirty Fun! – Provide high-quality, challengingly fun, and memorable running adventures on the sweetest trails in the north Texas area.
  • One Planet – Execute events with an environmentally aware mindset.
  • Kids Rock! – Provide opportunities for our little ones to share in the active lifestyle experience.
  • Support Positive Change – A portion of each event’s proceeds will help support a local non-profit transforming our world for the better.

Similar to nighttime trail running, as this journey progresses I can only see the next 10 feet in front of me. But when you keep moving forward, step by step, you see another 10 feet. Learning…growing…yes, indeed.

My first adventure is in-the-books for December 10th, 2011 on the sweet, varied, and periodically rocky technical (I think Joe P. would be proud) trails at Isle du Bois State Park (55 miles north of downtown Dallas). I will offer a 50 km and 10 mile scamper.

If any of this interests you, feel free to check out the site – Endurance Buzz Adventures.

Also, we currently have a EBA Facebook page and Twitter account. I will have RSS/email feed soon but that isn’t quite set up yet.

I also must say thank you to those that have privately and publicly supported my little project. The trail running community is a group I am honored, humbled, and inspired to be a part of.

Baby Walnut – Coming Oh So Soon

Our new addition to the family, baby girl Walnut, will be here any day…or even hour now. Wendy is ready. I am ready. Her room is ready (at least initially). Griffin is ready…as long as she won’t take his cars. 🙂

Her room!

One of the photos we took in the neighborhood a couple weeks back. Love it.

Life is good!

Oh yeah, I will be running the Pumpkin Holler (50k) with the TATURs in October! Then a possible 100 km scamper at Bandera. This quality over quantity training approach is going to come in handy. 😉

Another cup of coffee please…

Be active – Feel the buzz!

    Congrats on the new baby and on the new trail race venture. I just registered for White Rock yesterday, or else I would be jumping right in for your race. I may still have to sign up as a recovery run. . . .
    Best of luck!

    @Paul – Thanks dude! The White Rock / IDB double…I can see it now. 🙂 The trail surface might feel like you are walking on air following the marathon…assuming you don’t clip a rock. If you feel so inclined, you are more than welcomed.

    @alicia – Thanks so much and we really appreciate your positive thoughts. 🙂

    If I wasn’t running a 30K here in Houston on the 11th I’d sign up for this. But I will definitely keep it in mind for next year, sounds fun.

    @Jonathan – No worries. Have a great 30k! I am sure it will be a blast.

    Chris R. – Dude, thanks so much! 🙂

    Liza – Thank you! 🙂 Wendy’s fingers-crossed goal is to is to hold off from delivery until after Griffin’s last soccer game tomorrow morning. We will see what baby Walnut has to say about this…
