feel as though her motivational Spark has returned: because having jumped in the water at that Tri last weekend, there's only one direction TO go - toward the finish line!
finds the not quite lapful is filling more lap with her purr. And getting in more trouble, of course, as she grows.
is getting ready to go run, it's the training kick off for the Good Life Halfsy in November. It takes time to train for a Half Marathon.
They are gone now, but for the USAT Age group nationals, I was marked!
And the finisher's medal from the USA Triathlon Age Group National Championships, 2015.
How to improve transition time... how about ditch the watch?

The Christmas coffee
Poured into the pan

is seeing the pebble a day jar about to overflow... yes, it is nearing year's end!
au contraire... more runners show up for "First Run" than did for "Last Run"... it was a great morning for a run!
Because Marsha (SLENDERELLA61) said it would make a good profile pic. For Spark, maybe, not for FB!

glue Frosty's tray back together and took down the tree Sunday.
One of my favorites - I miss the Spark page a day calendars!

had a fine time and discovered a new running buddy at the Red Dress Dash... we ran it forwards, then backwards, just because we needed more miles to train.

swam in open water for the first time this season. Water was 80F, no need for wetsuits!
Who knew I'd ever join a sports TEAM and wear a uniform? Nevertheless, here I am, representing TNT!
Seabiscuit the Safer Swimmer float... these look like big fluffy tails before you get in the water!

got different colors in her hair today... but these washed out in one shower (I think...)
presents the side-by-side bling... a 5K doesn't often give a participation medal, but the Color Run does. And it's bigger than the Cornhusker State Games one for the non-competitive cycle tour.

bought the download to the Color Run posed jump with the niece.
presents another one from last Saturday... the blue zone... color running at its messy best!
