|359--Idaho: Ironman Triathlon in Coeur d'Alene|
Jul 13 2006 - 15:24 PST
Cherie writes: The Ironman triathlon brings together the world’s premiere elite athletes (like my roommates Kevin and Justin) to push their bodies to their ultimate physical limits. Kevin, Justin and Chris braved the heat and the grueling physical demands of the 2.4 mile swim, a 112-mile bike and to top it off--a marathon. See these inspirational photos as my roommates cross the finish-line and accomplish their incredible life goals.
Cherie wears an Ironman tattoo to support her friends (Kevin, Justin & Chris) competing in the Coeur d'Alene Ironman in Idaho.
The top three finishers were Joanna Zeiger, Heather Gollnick and Kate Major. The female pro triathletes were competing for a $50,000 purse. Chris Hauth, the former German Olympic swimmer, won the overall men’s race. But the day wasn’t about the strongest and the fastest. It was a joy to watch each person with their own unique story, race to glory.
For example, Major David Rozelle completed the Coeur d'Alene Ironman with one foot. Major Rozelle’s foot was amputated after an injury sustained when his vehicle stuck a landmine in Iraq. Determined to remain active, Rozelle is the first American amputee to return to duty. After completing his first Ironman, Major Rozelle (34) is ready for his next trip—to the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii.

|358--Idaho: Rainbows on the GPAR ranch|
Jul 11 2006 - 16:25 PST
Cherie writes: Northern Idaho is a place of quiet comfort, a place to get lost in the dreaminess of creamy wheat fields and the aromatic smell of late-harvest hops. Enter into a world of unplugged magic, where double rainbows really exist and children still frolic amongst the haystacks. Welcome to the wild oblivion of the North—to a land where being called a “heifer” is a compliment and the sweetest music is the wind tickling the amber leaves.
Jaden and Maria stare in awe as a rainbow arches over the Gardiner Prime Angus Ranch.
Soar with me above the rolling hills and fertile valleys of the GPAR ranch in Pat’s plane. Spy the sun-drenched canola fields and experience the solitude and enchantment of our gorgeous green earth viewed from over a thousand feet off the ground.

|357--Idaho: GPAR Ranch--Fishin' & Hiking|
Jul 09 2006 - 18:59 PST
|Cherie writes: On the ranch, life is simple. Freckled across the canola fields of Northern Idaho are drowsy Angus, skittering turkeys, frisky squirrels, and sometimes a lonely majestic moose. It's a quite peaceful sanctuary.|
When you're hanging out on the ranch, dinner is caught on a fishing line and the side-dish is plucked fresh from the garden. The local lakes reflect the clouds in the day and vast universe at night. Lemonade quenches the thirst of hay-bucking men and women flip huckleberry pancakes for breakfast.
Enjoy these photos of the GPAR ranch where we spent a week hiking and fishing.
