So I guess that makes up for my blogging slacking, right? I've been so busy having fun that I don't have time to blog. And I've been working a decent amount so there you have it.
Anyway offseason has been fun! I've been riding a little when the weather's nice. I saw a lot of this...
It may have been somewhat ill-advised only a few weeks after the Ironman but the foliage was so pretty and the weather was awesome. What can I say, ill-advised is my middle name sometimes!
I have also had more time to hang out with Bodie. She is looking very cute in this picture, sitting at lunch like a good dog.
I am in Columbus right now, I ran the half marathon here this morning and have been enjoying a fun weekend with my awesome friend Cathy. The race was not that special - I ran a 1:36 which is fine but nothing amazing. I was wondering how my legs would feel five weeks after the Ironman and they were okay. I would say I felt the best about 10 miles in. That is endurance training for you.
Columbus is much nicer than I frankly expected. They have a very nice river.
They also have this great place called the North Market. It has so many fun little food stands.
It's been a fun weekend. Now I am gearing up to head back to Houston and then to a spectathlon for my friend Tamra whom I am coaching this year. Can't wait to see how she does! I love Austin so I am pretty excited about that. And Tamra's pretty much my size so I am going to use her bike and go for a ride in the Texas hill country. I cannot wait for that!!!
