Back in the Saddle
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.

Maria has raised a whopping $4045 for the Making Strides walk this weekend, that is really impressive I think. I am beyond proud of her. I would love to see her make the top fundraiser (she might just do it), so if you want to check out her fundrasing page it is here. Another way you can help is to mention this on your blogs or tweet about it.
