And 1 Week Later

Here, I am, in my hockey gear, watching the USA play Canada.  Again.  Except this time, it’s for a medal.

It’s been a busy week, just getting workouts done and going to the office and such.  Nothing too exciting.

Yesterday, we decided to do some furniture moving in the house, which required organizing some of the stuff stored in the furniture.  For 7+ years, I’ve tossed ribbons, show photos and title certificates into a large dresser drawer in our guest bedroom.  Digging them all out was like rediscovering old treasures, remembering the memories that went with the trials and shows.  I ended up filling this entire bin with win ribbons!!! Mostly Max’s but Stanley is responsible for some pretty big ones (BOBs and specialty wins) too.

Today I had my first good long outdoor ride of the year!  Despite all the on and off rain we’ve been having, the day ended up being perfectly sunny!

I got to finally wear my IM AZ kit!

This time of year, everything is green and beautiful out!

I was thrilled to do one of our regular hilly rides and see that all my winter work on the trainer is paying off – the climbs didn’t feel hard!  I also didn’t get dropped by the boys :)

I really like riding outside for the first time in the spring because I always get that "wow - that trainer made me strong" feeling! It really does - doesn't it! :) Anyway, glad you had such a great ride and look at all those ribbons! :)

I'm jealous...you're in SHORTS for crying out loud. Looks like a perfect day for a ride.

P.S. New baby, Roland, will be delivered to us Easter weekend! I know I've got at least a year or so but I've got an agility dvd (Leerburg) so I can start on the little, non-jumping/impact stuff.
