Before I go…I have to tell you this

I have had such a great day!!!!

One: Halloween Party for kids

P1013221P1013222P1013224That is Lochlain, My Date with an Astronaut. He came as a superhero. The little girl is so cute. I looked at the picture and thought to myself ‘is this foreshadowing my future?’…Then I panicked.

TWO: I RAN A mock TRI TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As I wrote previously, I decided 2 weeks ago to run a triathlon for women here in Perth. Anyways, I have been training, bought every gadget for swimming and got on my bike. I am LOVING IT. Madi and I decided to do a test run today of the medium distance for the tri. 200m swim/ 7km bike/ 2km run.

Pre-pictures:

We biked and ran into the wind. But to be totally honest I felt really well. We finished the whole thing–DIDN’T STOP ONCE!

I have decided that I am going to go for the long run!!! I AM GOING TO DO THE LONG RUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HOLY CRAP! 300m swim/9km bike ride/3km run.

I just want to say that I am REALLY proud of Madi. She biked 7km last night, ran 3km and did BodyPump and then did this for the Tri. I can’t believe her. She’s amazing.

Post-Tri pictures. excuse me: I look like a moron.

Ok, as I wrote earlier (my morning) I am driving a bus down south with 20 American study abroad students. Starting after this post, the HOSTAGE situation of my blog is in full swing. Please come back throughout this weekend to see these awesome bloggers post away!

  • Joanna (because she listened to my advice and cooked mexican food)
  • Jack Sh*t, Gettin Fit (cause he kills me–in a good way)
  • Ali (cause she is a college student and I need to kick back into that)
  • Jen (she is the best damn photographer ever, and she’s losing weight)
  • Katy (one of my fav bloggers)
  • Amanda (she’s real, diverse and I down to earth)

I am sad that I am not going to be here to see them up. I WILL respond to all comments when I get back.

Gonna miss ya!

Have you watched a sunset lately?

    I love looking at beautiful pictures of sunsets. We live in the valley of the mountains so sometimes I love to drive over the hills to see the sunset. It’s breath-taking.
