life lately.

Life has been, well, pretty normal lately. It’s been filled with normal non-triathlon things, like road cycling (well, that’s relative) and racing the sun (come back, summer!), yoga-ing with gal pals, catching up with my sis + the cutest niece EVER, celebrating my dad’s 60th birthday (#60isthenew40), some time at the beach (the roar of the ocean!), easy morning swims (max = 1,700 yards), lunchtime runs and starting a new gig (#joblove, finally). Oh, and I hopped on the tri bike for the first time since IM Canada… weird how quickly it feels weird to ride aero.

It’s been even weirder to not be swimbikerunning all the time, and quite honestly, though the additional free time is nice, it’s been a struggle. I miss it terribly and am antsy to get started again. Seeing all the pics of Kona this week isn’t helping!

I’ve also been working on migrating this blog to a sparkly new site…! There are still some glitches to work out, but watch for it soon!

With that, here’s a look at life lately in photos…

  7. I know exactly what you mean about Kona. No matter what is going on in my training schedule when Kona rolls around, every year, I want to be racing. 🙂 It’s like I can feel the guts and glory coming through the Twitter/FB/TV/Youtube/whathaveyou. Love it.

  11. Exciting about a new job! You have been keeping busy!
    I know what you mean about missing training though. I’m loving not being attached to any workouts, but I miss the discipline!

  12. Congrats, and I totally hear you on the #joblove. Life takes on a completely different perspective when you’re in a good head space 9-5!

  13. I totally hear you on the experience of watching Kona. I was on a three-week break after training my butt off for an Oly distance, but then after watching Kona I was dying to get back to training. The next day, I went for a long bike ride, and this morning I ran, and tonight I’ll swim.

    Looking forward to seeing the new blog design!

  14. I hear you on the Kona pics – such a tease. Congrats on finding a job you love! And I am with you on 60 being the new 40 – if there is one thing my dad has taught me, it’s that life isn’t short and you can’t let “age” be a limiter. Chase after your dreams no matter how long you think it’s going to take you to get there.
