I loved the talk with Sonya Looney last night, so glad I went! She's so positive and motivated - very inspiring to hear her talk about biking and adventure and life in general. She spent about a half hour answering questions, which ended up being a lot about training and racing and how to improve technical skills and such. The she gave a presentation with photos of some of her stage races, and talked a lot about just getting out there and seeing places on your mountain bike, having adventures, living fully - it was awesome. I wish I'd had a pen to write down some things she said. Also scored a new Kask helmet that's awesome, so yay for that - I needed a new helmet, and this one's way nicer than what I'd buy for myself. My friend's husband won it, but already had one, so I ended up with it. And it fits perfectly! Yeah!!
So, I just remembered a cool thing she said last night about getting out of your comfort zone. She was talking about traveling and taking trips to ride your bike, an[...]

Had to get my ride in over lunch today since Brian and I are grabbing dinner tonight - and then he leaves for the Superbowl + like 10 other work trips this month. To places like Grand Cayman, Puerto Rico, Columbia, Costa Rica and Nicaragua (we both had to Google where Nicaragua is!) - so yeah I don't really feel sorry for him :)
Also I'm so excited that I was invited to volunteer at the Food Bank tomorrow with my T25 group (well, their larger department but my T25 buddies invited me) - it's the same assembly-line stuff I loved to do with my old employers work groups - woot!

Feeling much better - went to the dentist this morning without incident but went to work and had an ugly coughing fit on the subway (yes, i was that gross person) and then another at work. I decided it wasn't worth it and I high tailed it out of there to work from home. But i am a little less than motivated. I have a giant pile of work but I don't want to do ANYTHING!

Yasso 800s at the track and I almost couldn't run back to the gym. That was as close to barfing that I've come in a while. Legs are cooked.

I'm going to take a day off of running tomorrow and just bike and swim. After today's run, I'm officially at my highest monthly run volume ever.

No run on the schedule today, so stretching and core work is where it's at. Good run last night, finishing the final .5 with sub race speed. Push, Push, Push, it's the only way to grow:

Our town hosted a family bike ride around town for an awareness campaign. The whole event was a huge success and the costumes were so awesome. The photo of the clown is me and the pirate is my brother. Stay Classy Colorado

Sooooo....is it possible that running makes my heel feel better? No, right? There's no way that's true.
Even though that seems to be the case.
Pain is either the same or better than it's been the last couple weeks and I keep adding more mileage.
WEIRD.
