Has it been a month?

Wow, where did March go?  I am so guilty of not blogging; but a lot has happened since Feb. 24th. 

Kris and I got engaged.  Since we live in 2 different timezones; we need to start thinking about the future maybe getting us into the same timezone.  Lots more to come on that topic.  Plus a wedding...

I ran a 10K and was the fastest old person; I won the 35-39 female age group.  Wow, those top 5 girls are fast.  I just do not have it in me to run that fast; for instance I ran the 10K at a faster pace than a 5K a month earlier.  Yes there are MANY factors but still; i just can not run fast just strong longer.  Must work on getting the strong run faster.  :)  Unfortunately, during that 10K I rolled an ankle; BIG SURPRISE and ended up with a hurt knee.  So a few weeks of no, to easy running again.  But is doing better everyday with a run today so decided to race Powerman. 

Because of the hurt knee, I was lucky enough to get to swim and swim and swim.  So, the swimming is coming along nicely.  It will not help much for this weekend, a duathlon.  I am not sure why i take out my best event in the multi-sport and try to race it.  I know... to have fun and practice my transitions; since I usually get a manicure and pedicure during T1 and T2. 

I am looking forward to some spring weather; hoping the in like a lion out like a lamb in March is true.  My dishwasher is looking like spring and increase training...full of water bottles.  Bring on some warmth.

Comment from someone at work the other day that I have pondered --- "Why do you always eat so healthy; your already lean?"  Why is eating healthy viewed as way to be thin, can we just like to eat that way and know it is better lifestyle?   Sorry i am not eating the 5lb bag of M&Ms. 

Lastly, Shelby and Thomas have a great race this weekend in California.  I will be cheering for you from TN!  Also, all the Dynamo peeps doing California best of luck to you!   Have fun out there!

  1. Yes, folks think it is disgusting to eat healthy and those of us that do this...get ribbed for it. Should we revolt and say "WHY do have you to eat all that food that is SO bad for you all the time?" That would be funny!

    I hope you do well at the Du this weekend...and yes, I'll be watching Shelby's race as well...she's my lovely coach!!
