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!

My sister and I yesterday before the start of the Float Dodger 5k that her store, West Seattle Runner, puts on annually. Can you tell we’re related? 😜

Why I run.

A good ride

No fair… My husband’s long ride this week was prettier than mine!

Nothing seemed to go right today. I was late everywhere I went and quite frankly exhausted after my 2 hour cancer survivorship meeting to discuss all the potential diseases I’m at risk for now. So I did a 30 minute half-hearted open water swim and turned my 20 mile fast and flat bike ride into a 13 mile easy-paced ride. I just wasn’t feeling it and my legs felt tired and heavy.

64.3 miles and 3,215 feet of climbing through beautiful Enumclaw. I was surprised by how many of the roads I was unfamiliar with. I love a good adventure!

Bike hill repeats tonight up 140th. 1,562 feet of climbing in 12.9 miles! The hill itself is about 9% over 1.5 miles. I’ve never done this hill more than once on a ride, so I was really pleased that I did three times! 🚵

Whoohoo! So proud… My hospital made the list of 17 top hospitals in America! Go us! I must say, it is a pretty damn cool place to work and I’m lucky to be part of the team!

Rode the Lake Stevens 70.3 course today. It was one of the most beautiful routes I’ve ever done! But it was hilly! 57.6 miles and 3500 feet of climbing. I’m feeling a little more confident in doing Obliteride. Oh and to make the ride even better, it was 85 degrees! Perfect day! 🌞
