Lets see, I've been riding my bike, running, lifting weights, taking care of me, carting kids off to activities, carting myself off to activities, eating, sleeping when I can, being a mom, being a wife, being me.
So, that in all has left little time to blogging. I will be on the beach of mallorca in two weeks, and it will be a nice break from the busy-ness of this life. We have had so much going on, and we paid for this trip months ago, so it will be something to look forward to. There has been craziness too in life, but nothing that we cant handle, just have to be postive through everything. It really does make a difference on your whole outlook on life.
I went through, and actually told people how I was never going to race again, and that it's just not for me anymore. As I was running Sunday morning on the hills around our village, I realized what a stupid thing to say. I dont even know how Im going to feel next week, how would I know if I would ever race again??...silly girl..I was just kinda bummed out over the winter, but bike love has hit me again. I've been racing for 10 years, and it was a part of my life, training was, all through winter, rain or snow, well not this year, the truth is, well, I loooove riding my bike and that is the simplest part of the whole deal. So Im just gonna keep it simple this season and see what happens....
Spring has come early to our region of Germany, so I have been taking advantage, because you never know if the next week is going to be snow. Anyway, I've been having so much fun. There are endless road routes, but there is fun singletrack not far and in the Pflatz. So I have a lot of exploring to do. Im really excited for my my husband, he has been training hard for his xterra's and an ironman this summer, he's integrated the biking, swimming and running into his lifestyle, and my lifestyle and the fact that we dont have to compete for training time/family/sanity time has been a plus. Maybe next year I will race again, who knows, maybe I will get the itch this summer, but for now, I am just enjoying flying around on two wheels, pulling the 4yr old when she's not at school, which is at least 50lbs including the bike trailer, hanging with the G man (my 9yr old) and running. I really love running!! I try to get up early before everyone is awake, its the best!! and the views here where I live are simply stunning!,,,,need to grab that camera sometime : )
Anyway, that's my life in a very condensed, unchaotic version, but it's pretty close to the heart of it : ))
