I’ve decided I like my shot blocks a little stale. They’re kind of like marshmallow peeps (before I was vegan). Open a package, leave them out for a week and voila! Today I did 20 miles fast and flat and increased my average by 0.8 mph! I’ll take that!

Spent the day assisting 800 and some cyclists ride 168 miles and climb 10,000 feet for #Ramrod, as a volunteer. Next year I’ll be the one on the bike! I had a lot of fun and now I’m looking forward to it even more!

Still recovering from this weekend’s workouts. I know it’s been a good weekend when I need a week to recover! A little bummed though because I just found out I have to work the weekend of the Lake Steven’s Olympic tri!

20 fast and flat miles today! I actually had a guy draft me for 10 miles. I’m usually never fast enough for anyone to want to draft me! ⚡

Ohmygod. Ohmygod. Ohmygod.

Holy crap! I’m reading “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy,” and they just got to the part where they’re talking about the Babel fish, and I just realized that must be where the translating website Babelfish got their name. Yay for literacy!

One last one… Finish strong! After I crossed the finish line the first time, I went back and found my sister so we could cross the finish line together like we did last year!
