back in the saddle again

Well, after 2 days of rest, lots of zinc tablets, and 4-32 oz nalgenes of water a day, I'm back! Did a 1:50 ride and 30 min run brick yesterday, and aside from the temperature dropping from 60 degrees Friday to 29 Saturday(!!), it felt great! Today I met the Solers for 10-11 miles at a nice easy 10:30 pace. It went pretty well, and then we went out for coffee at Caribou afterwards, which is always fun!

Headed to the grocery store after that to pick up some peppers and tomatoes for my homemade turkey chili (currently in the Crock Pot--YUM-O), and ran into Debbie selling girl scout cookies at the store with her daughter! Debbie just did IMFL in November and lo and behold she even had pics to share with me!!! So cool. I got goose bumps standing there in the grocery store looking at her pictures. She even had this awesome M-dot neckace on...I soooooooooo must have one when I finish IM MOO. :)

So later on it's core work for me, then some chili, and then some cards with our buddies tonight! Thank God for three-day weekends! (or thank MLK, Jr., I guess!)

Can't wait to head to Denver this weekend to snowshoe with my buddy Mindy! It will be nice to get a little change of scenery.

I'm also pumped to read how Tammy's first marathon went! She's probably finishing just about now (is AZ 2 or 3 hours behind OH? I can never remember...) and I'm sure she kicked butt!

Stay warm....

That's great. I almost died on my bike trainer yesterday. Not enough carbs and just bored out of my mind.

Let us know how snowshoeing goes. I want to get into that.but no snow here.

Indeed, you've got me hungry for chili too. I think I may just try to make a batch tonight!

Nice brick workout! 1:50 on the trainer! Talk about mental toughness!! How did you make it through? TV or music?

Those necklaces are so cool! I have to say, I have been contemplating changing my fall marathon from TC to Nike Women's Marathon simply because of the medal/necklace you get - A. Maria has one, and it is so cool. Check out her site - she has a pic of it up.

homemade turkey chili??? I love the sound of that.. I been working on a recipe for chili over the last couple of years.. haven’t got it just right yet.. But it’s coming out really good..
And with cheese cake to. I find the stuff in the store that people bring everywhere is crap compared to the easiest of recipes.. So over the last two years I been working to tweak “the world best cheese cake”

Cheers.
