I have gone for a couple of rides this week, my first time back on the bike after a 3 week lay-off. It was 100% worth it to recharge my batteries and focus on the year ahead, I think I needed that month of non-structured training. I love riding in the fall, the air is so crisp and clear. The downside is that it is freezing in the morning now (29 degrees this morning, I had to defrost my truck) so I am trying to get my rides in later if I can. The sad thing is, it isn't going to be too long before I am on the trainer.
Getting my running legs back...
I haven't been feeling that great on the run for a long time. I feel very clunky and just not right. I remember when running was my thing, I felt fluid and strong. I want that back. I think that the injury really messed me up mentally as much as anything else. I will find my zone again, I know it.
I plan on posting my weekly workouts again...
Um, yeah, now that I am working out again.
I eat a lot..
Seriously, for a girl my size, I eat more than you would think. I actually weigh more than you would think too. Nope, not going to tell you that number!! So I have started tracking my diet by writing everything down I eat in a notebook. I want to lose 10 lbs, I figure it is free speed to head into next season with.
I love this photo of my man and I...
Our friend Scot took this picture of John and I at Grand Falls this past weekend, I think it is cool.

Just a little shameless promotion of Maria...
My niece Maria is a sophomore in high school, an athlete, and the youngest with three older brothers. She is a pretty freaking awesome young woman. I may be a little biased, but seriously, you would love her.
Her mother (my sister-in-law) Becky, fought breast cancer for many years. Unfortunately we lost Becky a year and a half ago, and we all miss her greatly. Becky participated in the Making Strides walk every year of her fight, and it was a very important event for her. We have kept the team going in her honor, and Maria was one of the key people behind keeping the tradition going.
