Windy ride! Very glad to be riding outside but could have done with less extreme wind.

Today's ride was a rainout so I did a trainer ride while watching FoodNetwork and DIY (House Crashers, Pioneer Woman, Yard Crashers). Intervals at the commercials. Kept it in the right heart rate zone throughout. Sweaty!


Indoor ride today.  Hoping (hopping?) to get out tomorrow.

I hope that everyone is having a pleasant Easter weekend!

early morning walk with Emma


Earlier this week I was pretty excited about my training schedule this weekend -- three hours on the bike on Saturday and two hours on Sunday!  Since then the forecast has changed from 70 and sunny to 55 and raining.  Ugh!


Divergent cover

We finally went to see Divergent.  I think that Kevin liked it more than I did but that's not too surprising since I read the book and he didn't.  I ended up doing some comparisons while I was watching the movie.  I had forgotten about Evil Janine -- not the character but that we share a name!  I also wonder about one of the initiates that was featured in the book but not mentioned in the movie.  He'll come up in the second movie and I wonder how they will handle it.

Still no race report.  I'm a slacker.  Also, the whole w-o-r-k thing is interfering with my blogging.

    I'm in this video of the start of yesterday's race -- top right corner, 19 seconds in.

    Race start as taken by WRAL.  The starting line is in the top right. 24 corals of runners waiting to start wrap around the block. 12,500 runners were registered.


    I'm still working on my race report.

    As you may have heard, two people died during the half marathon yesterday.  Here are a few quick links to the local news coverage if you are interested:
