Welcome back!! 6 miles

Happy 2015! Well here's to my first resolution of the year- keep posting!!
This was the view from my New Years run this morning in Arizona and it was cold!! I got caught in this storm yesterday on my bike which is pretty much making it hard for me to even want to get back on while on break! I'm feeling more like biking on the trainer than piling on my cycling gear and freezing! And how about an outdoor swim- um no thank you!!! But hey- I ran - hung over to boot- and running is always a battle for me.... Today's thought "if in doubt, run!"
Happy New Years 🎉

Welcome back!!!

Well hello friends!!! I guess you can say I keep a journal about as sporadically as i do a blog :) I have lots of notebooks with the first 5 pages full of all kinds of ideas! The worst part, I love buying notebooks~ what's that about???

The first quarter of school has flown by and the snow is on the ground!! Yeah, almost time for skiing... Jason and I went on our month long trip and had an absolute blast! I got to do a triathlon out of state which went much better then I thought it would, considering 7,500' in elevation! Hardest swim of my life!!! I took first for my age group and 8th overall. I was actually in 6th out of the lake, 2nd at the bike turn around, but then came the run :) I will say it was a great experience and not too bad after spending a few days in Vegas before hand!! Other then that I am pretty happy with my season, after a horrid Gold Nugget, I dropped 6 minutes at Eagle river- still can't figure out where that came from. The final times for the Big lake tri were messed up but by my watch I think i Pr'd by a couple minutes. I really wanted to do the Alaska State tri, but that was the morning that we flew back to Alaska so I decided to skip it and get some sleep.

So I am still swimming with the master's team in the a.m. and loving it! I sure missed swimming all those years :) I am trying to continue biking, and of course my running has slacked since the xc running season ended... I am attempting to run at least a few times a week, but have found I am easily distracted :) we shall see! I guess the question is - how bad do you want it??? Swimming with Shannon D. & Shannon T. in the a.m. intimidates me, it also inspires me to be more driven. Great work ethic!!!

Well, gotta get some stuff done. Again, I will try to be consistent not only in running but my blog :) Happy Wednesday!!!

short and sweet

well, i am yet again late at writing in my blog! 2 weeks left of school and my first summer break without teaching summer school! I am excited, but uncertain at the same time... This is the first year i have taken off from Track and Summer school in 6 years. I definitely think that this will be a much needed break and am looking forward to some me time :) Hopefully i have enough endurance in me to make it though the summer training and enjoying some of the local races. Seems like I make it to the big lake tri and lose all momentum... First triathlon of the season is this Sunday and i am praying I can get through this allergy issue, or whatever it is. I think back to a month ago when training was going awesome and I felt so strong- i am a bit concerned but i guess that is normal. Every year it is the same story, i just need to tell myself I am strong. I need a good mantra!!!
Well, gotta work! ciao
