So many random good things going on!  Birthday weeks are good that way.

I hit over 10,000 yards of swimming this week for the first time ever!  [I’m told I should mention that all swimming was done within 4 days – 3 swims – rather than a week, because it makes it sound even better LOL]  I’ve flirted in the high 9,000s but this was my first time crossing that 10,000 barrier.  I felt surprisingly good and smooth on that 3rd swim.

Did you see my new bike frame? Wheeeee!

Stanley has a big schnozz.  And sometimes it picks up friends.


It’s a beautiful day here in Northern California.  I got to watch the sun rise from my vantage point on the track.



While on the track, I completed my Big Birthday Track Brick!  It was awesome.  Bike-run-bike-run-bike-run-bike-run-bike.  Lots of race pace thrown in there too.

34 feels pretty good so far! And my Recovery e21 race kit passed its test ride/run with flying colors!


It was also pretty on the drive back from dropping the dogs at the groomer.  Green and sunny!


The day got even better with birthday flowers from a good friend!!!


Clean dogs are icing on the cake.



Did someone mention cake?

ALL that was missing today was 34x100's. That would have put you at 13K+ for the week! Lol. JK. Glad you're having such a great day. And awesome new bike!

Which track do you use? The cake look delicious. Why made you choose Specialized for your new frame? That's all for now...
